Earthbag Building: The Tools, Tricks and Techniques (Mother Earth News Wiser Living Series)
The only comprehensive, illustrated, step-by-step guide to building with earthbags. Over seventy percent of Americans cannot afford to own a code-enforced, contractor-built home. This has led to widespread interest in using natural materials-straw, cob, and earth-for building homes and other buildings that are inexpensive, and that rely largely on labor rather than expensive and often environmentally-damaging outsourced materials. Earthbag Building is the first comprehensive guide to all the tools, tricks, and techniques for building with bags filled with earth-or earthbags. Having been introduced to sandbag construction by the renowned Nader Khalili in 1993, the authors developed this "Flexible Form Rammed Earth Technique" over the last decade. A reliable method for constructing homes, outbuildings, garden walls and much more, this enduring, tree-free architecture can also be used to create arched and domed structures of great beauty-in any region, and at home, in developing countries, or in emergency relief work. This profusely illustrated guide first discusses the many merits of earthbag construction, and then leads the reader through the key elements of an earthbag building: Special design considerations Foundations, walls, and floors Electrical, plumbing, and shelvin...

Mud Ball: How I dug myself out of the daily grind.
"If you've ever fantasised about going off-grid, this book is a must read!" The Fethiye Times.I couldn’t teach another lesson. Nor could I tolerate another day with a boss, a punch card and the indigestion I suffered from bolting my muesli. This was why I’d spent the past five months camping in a remote Turkish field. I’d been happy despite the lack of power or running water. Then the first winter storm crashed through the valley, turning my tent into a canvas pole dancer. It dawned on me I might need a house. There were only two problems: I had just $6000 left in my account, and 6 weeks before winter."A wonderful, heart-tugging story." The Natural Building Blog."Inspiring and beautifully written." The Owner Builder Magazine."A joy from beginning to end - a brave, funny, moving account of building a new life and a new home out of mud in Turkey's mountain wilderness." Sara Crowe, author of Bone Jack.

How to build your own sandbag house: the beginner's guide to natural building methods
I committed to building my mom a sandbag house and learnt a crazy amount from scratch. We plastered the walls with cob and lime plaster, painted the interior with natural paints and laid down a completely natural floor sealed with bee’s wax and turpentine. The journey was tough, the rewards are still felt, seven years later. We pulled it off and the house stands solid, providing a soft landing for all who enter. This manual is designed to give you a step by step guide to all the details involved in building a house from sand. It will save you so much time and money. And even though building a house is not always a smooth ride, building your own is worth every tear and cent. We need to create more homes that are designed consciously and provide the inhabitants with an experience of living in a nurturing space. And if I can do it, then ANYONE can do it. You can do it. That is why I wrote this manual: to support those with a dream, of owning their own personalized home that is designed and built using natural materials. The manual covers designing your house to improve passive solar gain, building with sandbags and frames, plastering with cob and lime, making indoor walls with small sandbags and wattle and daub, laying down a completely natural floor, attaching the roof, natural f...
