Canadian Dirtbags

When you own that piece of land that you return to occasionally. You may wish to construct an off grid dwelling. This is the place to discuss different construction methods, materials, and types. Think straw bale, earth ship, yurt, etc..

Canadian Dirtbags

Postby stuartcnz » Sat Oct 06, 2012 4:47 am

Canadian Dirtbags is a blog by a Canadian couple that I have been following for some time now. In their latest installment, it appears that they have now completed the structure of their dirtbag home, and have their rocket mass stove up and running.

I see they are using earth bag techniques, something I recently discovered and really like the idea of.

Pity I've started a container house :(
