intrested i am now in process of building it need help filling sand bags and placing them then plastering them, i am also doing walls and out buildings I have sucessfuly built a sand bag green house and am growing citrus trees in it. I have a little expereience in building with sand bags and a lot of ideas. I am currently undertaking the swimming pool, garden wall upper wall, almost all done, then the parking lot wall 60 plus feet over 6 feet high with 2 windows in it, almost done. then the grotto bulding not yet finished, the 2 story cabanna, 9 ft under ground done 10 feet tall above ground just started. then the 20x20 garage just started need sand bag wall up 6 feet finish with steel siding first 3 courses done. then the chicken coop not started, then the outdoor storage shed not started, then the water tank room not started, all of this work needs to be done. i keep reading on the internet that classes or work shops cost 500 to 1600 dollars. if you bring a 90 lb bag of cement per day and you are a hard worker i will show you how and how not to do it. for free. please contact me. I live in a small town in northern arizona the dirt is good the weather is crisp and the work is rewarding. if you would like hands on experience at doing this type of building please let me know.

Yes, I agree, this project is great!
I never would have thought about using the earthbags for steps, but it seems like such a natural progression.

Would love to get in contact with you as I am going to be buying land out in Northern AZ. Was hoping maybe you can exchange thoughts and how it works with the building codes, materials work best, networks of resources? Would not mind coming down there while I am looking at my property to assist and learn some things. Could you please let me know how you are coming along and what is next?
I am also looking to build my own home as well using the same technique (earth bag, did you ever encounter any problems at all with codes, etc.? Where you also able to get real good deals on solar, septic, water catchments, etc.? I could use some solid advice and resource connections as I will be doing this project alone with my sons.

I know this an old post, but I am hoping your still around; I am new to the forum and like you have some land in northern AZ (Navajo County) that I am planning on building some earthbag homes/structures on. I would be curious and inquisitive as to your knowledge and experience with this type of building in AZ. I would welcome the opportunity to help with your project if it is still underway. Let me know... Thanks!
