The Earth Home Builder
The EHB has a variety of uses. Levee barriers, garden walls, & earthen homes. See our Pricing page for more information.
By using woven polypropylene sandbags filled with stabilized/unstabilized soil we are able to provide walls that are 10x stronger than timber and are mold, rot, fire, flood and natural disaster resistant. No cement is needed (engineering is required) in the wall systems and reinforcing bar is added for strength. The Earth Home Builder fills earthbag tubes of various sizes at a rate up to 400ft per hour. At production speed, a crew by hand can fill about 30ft per hour (depending on bag width.) Overall, it all depends on what you are looking for but by comparison, building an earthbag structure with the EHB could save you over $150 per square foot in many cases, and the foundation/walls can be built in days.
Finishings may be applied as they do with traditional construction and alternative methods may be used to apply various types of siding.
