Our First Earthbag Dome!

 

As per our timeline, the next phase of our development is constructing the first staff house on site. We have built two family homes using earthbag construction. Those houses have steel roofing. This next building will be built using earthbag construction as well, but will be two domes joined by a hallway.

Thanks to SpencerCreo Foundation for the generous donation, allowing us to make this a reality! All of us are SO excited about earthbag!

 

The foundation is laid in the first dome
