Jesse Loving’s Earthbag House


We reported on Jesse’s earthbag shed in Belize in a previous post. Stunning, eh? Now he’s hard at work finishing his earthbag house. He’s putting the same level of skill and refinement into his home as he did his shed. Looking good, Jesse! Be sure to look through his photo album below.

  4. I love it Jesse, nice. I too am in Belize and having trouble finding bags less than 100 pounds and are too wide I think? Can I ask were you found your bags in Belize? Awesome, Peter

    • I have to say I really admire the fine craftsmanship of your work. Your projects are a big inspiration to others. There’s a big difference between just stacking a bunch of bags and creating a beautiful home. Your work shows what’s possible with care and effort.

  5. This house is just plain awesome !!

    Love how neat this building site is and one can see a lot of planning was done before the build.

    Wish you the best Jesse

    PS: Can you perhaps post a rough plan/layout with sizes?
    It is difficult to comprehend the scale of this house just from the images

    Thanx

  6. It’s incredible that you can make a house just from this. I know that this can only be done in higher climate coutries but it is impressive none the less.
