We built this earthbag dome at our home in Thailand for Mother Earth News Magazine in 2007. The article that describes the complete building process in detail was published August/September 2009. It is now free on the Internet: Low-Cost Multipurpose Minibuilding Made With Earthbags.” – Owen Geiger via Instructables

Owen Geiger recently posted this small cabin design on his Earthbag House Plans website. It’s only 283 square feet and features a bathroom, kitchen, living space, and a sleeping loft. This may also be one of the designs to appear in Owen’s future coming house plans book.

Dr. Owen Geiger, the Director of the Geiger Research Institute of Sustainable Building, posted one of my design concepts on his Earthbag Building Blog. I had whipped this design up for a 1 Hour Design Challenge at Core77, in exactly 1-hour using Google SketchUp. Thanks for all the earthbag inspiration Owen!
