have you seen a dirt house?

The Honey House is a 12-foot (interior) diameter corbelled earthbag dome built in 1996. The earthbag work was constructed in 19 days. The plastering was an ongoing summer project. Cost of all materials was about $1500 (US). Included in this price was professional backhoe service to dig the foundation, all reject soil delivered, bags, barbed wire, window and door forms, manufactured windows and custom-made door.

  1. I love the shape of this house! When I lived in Oregon, my kids' homeschool group did a workshop at the Cob Cottage Company in Cottage Grove. My husband and I are looking for the perfect piece of land to build our strawbale home.
