There was another thread about this earlier in the year: http://www.deatech.com/pipermail/coblist/2004/000907.html sending us here: http://www.ok-ok-ok.com/ Notice that in that second link the earth bags are corbelled, including in the big photo in the section titled "cob and structural adobe." On the other hand, Cal-Earth has gotten codes approval for a building in a seismic area, presumably with their standard building technique. ................ This may be Ernie writing--seriously snipped: > I looked into the super adobe domes and noticed something; the arches > are formed by a single tube of adobe the wall is built behind the > form. Well I got to thinking and wondering if you could do the same > sort of thing with cob instead of corbelling the arch. _________________________________________________________________ Get ready for school!
