Earthbag Dome

Get some earth bag with soil and turn them into green dome!
It is quite amazing what we can build not using special tools. I couldn't forget great Eco-friendly Hobbit House For $250 project. What may seem to be a miracle, is was a result of a determination, will and integrity. Only a big entanglement in something can give a marvelous effect!

Owen Geiger seems to know how to surprise people. He built this beautiful Dome using only a lot of earth bag and basic tools. On the ‘Instructables' you can find all necessary step by step instructions of how to build this eco-friendly earth bag dome and illustration of each step of construction along with photos. You don’t need a building permit to build this little hobbit house, what is encouraging for sure. It is below the minimum size required by building codes, is not inhabited and is not attached to a residence, so you have a green light to do it!

If this idea wins your heart, it’s a good time to build your very own one! Don’t forget to share your thoughts on the idea below the post – we’re always curious of what you think!
