Hello All,

My brother and I will be building our first hyper adobe/super adobe dome starting next month and I would like your guys opinion on the type of mesh bags I found online, please see link below:


Also, would 1,000 bags this size be enough for at least a 15ft diameter 15ft tall dome?

Item No. 730 Mesh Bag, Raschel Mesh, Red, 50 lbs., 500 pack
21 in x 31.5 inches long, ( 53 x 80 cm )
50 Pound, Leno Mesh, with Draw Cord, Red color 21 in x 31.5 in. long, Raschel mesh woven polypropylene bags. Black draw core can be cinched and tied for easy closure.

Hi Kasper,

I am a Senior at the Evergreen State College. I am currently wrapping up an all upper division science Independent Learning Contract focusing on Natural Building. While searching for a property to theoretically do my final project design on, I stumbled upon your post. It would be great if I could find a way for my project to potentially benefit a natural builder in Central Oregon and I think this could be a great opportunity for both of us - I could use a real site and you might gain something of value from what I draft up (no pressure to use anything of course, sometimes its just nice to get another perspective). If you want to message me at tinbindi@gmail.com with the details of your project I will get started right away and have something to you in 2 weeks! I need to start my project in the next couple of days so if I don't hear back from you soon I will select a random site.

Hope to hear from you soon,

Tin Bindi

No thanks. We have all the government we need. This tiny ad would like you to leave now:
