Building Dirt Cheap- Superadobe flexible form rammed earth for DIYer's

Building Homes From Dirt Onsite for $10 a foot finished

It is also called Superadobe or flexible form rammed earth and it is the most sustainable, least expensive, and easiest way to build a home or other structure know to modern man.

Last week we started on the foundation (which is of course critical).  This week we will finish it off with sandbag construction and then move on to or easier and simpler “Tubes.”  There are 5 classes and each is more or less a stand alone in that each will review what happened in the last class and where we are going.  So even if you make even one class, you will get the complete EBook, hands on doing it, and become part of the awesome sustainable permaculture community that is forming over this exciting building style. 

If you are a prepper or survivalist you can actually put these underground.  If you are a  "DIY mortgage free” person, this is the technique.  If you are into sustainability nothing is more so.  And if you are a futurist and want to see  and become part of the change that is coming whether we want it to or not, this is also the class.  We not only are putting up a real structure, but we bring in other subjects tangential to it like Food Forests, water harvesting, composting toilets, permaculture integration, sustainable survivability, and much more that go with the project as well. 

We are a University of Sustainability at a real eco-village and an intentional community all in one.  You will really like what we do and suggest you just ask others who have taken our low cost workshops.  They are as good as it gets and pennies on the dollars to other classes like them.  Each class in this series is just $50 and you can get a package for the remaining 4 classes for just $150.  Don’t  miss out as the prices are going up in October as cost of materials and rental equipment is way up.

    The light weight materials may not be all that inspiring, but they sure figured out how to make it easy with an orange peel type of construction for a dome house. and

    Number two of Five. It is all you need to learn to build your own earthen structure and we all had fun even in 2 hours of drizzling rain.

    Ace Hardware sells a 2.5 oz personal water mister for $6. It pumps up, no batteries. I tried their sample, it worked great.
