DIY Earthbag Round House


Last Updated on January 4, 2018

This interesting home is made from earthbags, also known as sandbags. Sandbags were first used by the military and emergency services teams to build protective structures and for flood control. Now the concept of using earthbags has been applied to housing to create strong and affordable strucures. Earthbags are ideal for making homes that will stand up to the harshest weather. And using the right design, you can also have one of the safest homes in a fire zone. Obviously, a grass roof is not going to help there.

Aside from being durable structures, earthbag homes are also cheap. They are labour intensive but bags can be filled with either dirt from the property itself, or other available sources and the homes can be built practically anywhere in the world. Aside from saving money, you also get both thermal mass and great sound and temperature insulation.
