I am building an earthbag dome next summer, here in New Brunswick the summer of 2015.
The question is whether there's enough interest for superadobe workshops and or a permaculture certification course.
I am bringing in 1 or maybe 2 friends who are Cal-Earth alumni with 20 years experience.
We are still hammering out dates and all that jazz.
IF this interests you, please moose me! Thanks all.
How will you insulate this ? Is it to be a year round structure or summer use only ?

Most likely 4 season with straw bale insulation above grade. Still in design consultation process. I'll have complete drawings for mid autumn at latest(I'm an arch. draftsman. Keep the questions coming. Will have the facebook page up soon.
I would also be very interested in participating in your project. I'm living in Moncton and interested to learn and help. I've never worked on a project like this but I've been doing a lot of reading and I'm hoping to see if this type of building would be a possibility for my husband and I. I've sent a request to join your facebook group.

I realize it has been a year and a half but I am interested to hear how it is going. I am hoping to build an earth bag structure once my wife and I move to Nova Scotia. I will join your Facebook page next so I can follow you there also.
Anything worth doing well is worth doing poorly first. Just look at this tiny ad:
