I understand that it is a very labor intensive process and I am prepared for that. I am planning on using hyper adobe with the Raschel bags that one can order from bagsupplies.CA
I would like to make an earthbag dome in the style that you don't have to angle them inwards to make a perfect half circle dome, but rather the pointy type.
My intent on building this dome is to cover it with earth, maybe 3 ft thick at the thinnest point.
A question have is if it is possible at all to make a dome, 26' feet in diameter? I thought that you could only do that with a bag that when filled is 266" wide after being tamped? Also, how much do I have to corbel over the edge of the bottom layer to make the shape of the dome I am looking for?
