How to Build an Bulletproof Earthbag Dome For $300
Earthbag construction can be a wonderful way to build a small (or large) home. Earthbag domes are also incredibly simple to design and build. These cute little structures can be adorned with a living roof, or covered in mud or plaster. They are structurally sound, and when complete can blend into the landscape thereby minimizing the effects on the environment.

They’re also inexpensive to build and might be an option for those folks to build on a limited budget. The earthbag dome structure below was built for Mother Earth News as an example of the construction technique back in 2009 for only $300. With a little ingenuity and creating thinking one can easily see how this type of structure could be scaled up to build a larger sized home. Read the original article below.
