We are in our late 50’s and have began to build our earthbag dome home in beautiful sunny Queensland. I love to draw and paint pictures. I do artwork on metal letterboxes that we make. My partner is a concreter. Our home will be cool all year round. We were hoping to teach others how to build sustainable homes.

Earthbag dome Home

March 17, 2023

Hi I’m building an earthbag dome here in Australia. It’s a sustainable alternative dwelling. These homes stay cool all year round. They’re easy to build. You just put dirt into a bag and put it in place, cover it with render and you’ve got a cyclone proof, fire proof, eco friendly home. Would you like to help me with building my home? It’s easy and we have a beautiful place to live in too.
