“This training took place December 2011 in Nariño, the southern border of Colombia with Ecuador. During 2 days we gave all the basic construction tools to a bunch of very happy and enthusiastic locals which were amazed at learning a new earth based construction method, an evolution of their own local architecture!”

  2. “purple Domes for the win” quote our 11 year old. our 5 year old has told us her dome must be this color because it’s perfect for her. lol love this

  3. I forgot one thing. Do you just cut the tube ends and fold them over and lay them in place or are there electric sealers like you see for sealing your food in bags at home that are used? I’m thinking when you start a new coarse/course. Thanks.

  4. Very nice building. There site is one of the best I’ve seen so far. I’ve often wondered how you filled tubes and this showed it clearly. Are there other ways of doing it? If so, do you have pictures? Thanks Owen for showing this.
