Frequently Asked Questions
Most every topic imaginable about earthbag building and related topics has already been covered numerous times on our blog or one of our other websites. In an effort to cut back on emails, this page explains how to use our new search engine, find answers to the most Frequently Asked Questions, and locate the most popular and useful articles.
Search engine: Our new, improved search engine (Google powered) is far superior to our old WordPress search engine. What used to take me 5-10 minutes, now pops up the desired info in seconds (if you know the correct terms). The built-in search engine is in the right hand column of this blog. Example: You want to know how many bags you’ll need. Type ‘how many bags’ in the search engine box and the blog post How Many Bags Does it Take? is listed.
Browse by Topics or Date: Scroll to the bottom of this blog. This is a fantastic new feature!
