  1. Hey, I am doing my own research on getting a project like this up and running. Do you guys have any step by step info, or blueprint you are willing to share? I know you probably do workshops but I am not seeing any information on this.

    Thanks!

  2. I need to build an earthbag and cob house- it’s all I can afford for my family, and I’m a 54 year old single mom! Any advice you could give me about getting sandbag building approved either in J Bay or Southern Peninsula, Cape would be very much appreciated. I’m really serious. I really need to know soon, as my lease is up on the house I’m renting in December, and I’m looking to buy as big a piece of land as possible for under R200,000. I’m going to get a plan for a near zero engergy house from http://www.earthbagbuilding.com/plans/plans.htm courtesy of my daughter in the USA, so an existing plan in other words.

    Can you help ?

    I’m self-employed, and work comes in fits and starts…

  3. Now that you are in the house – what do you think ? Does the house feel warmer to you in the winter ? Do you feel that the walls offer some acoustic value ? From what I have seen, great job, well done.
