Hi I just came across this thread. Very lovely. Do you still use the dome earth house?

What a lovely idea.
I have not read everything, but do you have water problems with soil piled against the timber walls, or up through the floor?

Here in the middle of Canada, Manitoba zone 3, I could use willow and cottonwood aka balsam poplar.  I wonder what other type of woody things would work?  We have wild hazelnuts, maybe lilac?  Anyone know of a list of woody things that would work?
