Hello Jeanne!

I see that you're using earthbag construction--excellent! I have some land as well, and will eventually be building a house using earthbag construction, so I'm interested to hear how your process develops and I hope you'll start a post in the forum to keep all of us informed and updated on your progress! You may also want to consider recording your process and uploading it to the internet so others can really watch your method and learn how to do it themselves.  I say all of this because, currently, there doesn't seem to be much in the way of free, accessible information about earthbag construction (in step-by-step format).

Anyway, it's great to have you in the forum and we look forward to hearing from you soon!
