This review is from: Earthbag Building: The Tool, Tricks and Techniques (Natural Building Series) (Paperback)
I built my own earthbag house using this guide alone. It is incredibly detailed and the illustrations are great for understanding how to put earthbags together, adding strip anchors and the art of 'diddling'. There are some areas where information is a bit scarce, or more illustrations would have been useful; windows and doorframes ( Both I, and another friend of mine who also built such a house, had various issues with the methods outlined in the book) and bond beams for round houses for example. But generally, a wise buy if you're about to embark on earthbag building.
