Building an Earthbag House in Northern New Mexico (click to enlarge)


“The roof beams are up! I did something miraculous–I’ve hired someone, Raymond who is a god-send, to help me finish and might hire a second person next week. It’s cold! and I need to move in. I’ve committed to moving in next Saturday regardless of the state of the house so I better get it done as much as possible. The weather has gotten kinda crappy so we haven’t gotten as much done as I would have liked but come Monday we’ll be back in full swing with some serious blue skies. It frosted last night for the first time. I must admit the snow on the mountains looks quite beautiful next to the red and yellow of the fall-changing Aspens.”

  1. I’ve been following you for some time now. So glad to hear you’re nearly ready to move in. We lived in our first house (not earthbag!) at 11,000′ + through an entire winter with no real windows or insulation. Quite a challenge but oh, so exciting. Luckily we had a huge pile of wood and a great cookstove. Best of luck to you…keep warm! Annie
