    This is a system i had not seen before.
    I know building a dome like this in mud bricks is difficult as each brick has to be made to a certain precise dimension-otherwise it collapses.

    This might make a good emergency shelter for bushfires?
    A few neighbours might be able to bash one up over a weekend, a BBQ and a few slabs?

    Re: Alternative building

    Hi! So glad to see someone bring up earthbag construction, as I was about to just make a topic on it.

    I joined here yesterday in hopes to gain interest in my own earthbag projects and hope to motivate others to try it out.

    Anyone have any questions?
