Earthbag Building – Mud, Mud, and More Mud…

We finished mudding the front room dome, but had to stop with the other two rooms due to some cold and bitter weather heading our direction.

Hopefully if the weather warms up, we’ll continue, otherwise, it will be under a tarp for a while. But we are warm and toasty, chopping a lot of firewood, and hoping to get the solar panels hooked up in a few weeks. More to come.

Earthbag Building is Complete!

Three long months… 2,000 Sandbags, 4,000 nails for closing the bags, 90 cubic yards of lava rock, 4 miles of barbed wire, -40 lbs. of combined weight-loss & 37 cans of Cattle Drive Chili… we have completed construction of our dome home.

Our temporary front door and hallway ceiling (To get it covered before winter comes)

We installed the stove earlier this week.

Did they elect a new Pope? Nah…

Now we are in the process of mudding before winter arrives. It’s only a temporary covering until we apply the final plaster next Spring.
