JUST GOT AN EMAIL with a video clip on earthship type home site it is a clear view of the entire inside and workings of a n 'eship' and it is informative. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=875121548804123329 DANE- keep in mind there is no insuation in an all dirt bag home, if you use PUMICE, SCORIA or other insulative material you will have a better R value. an all dirt home canbe very cold in wet climate unlessa good heat source and solar gain is planned at the start. friends of mine gave up on building a straight ebag in CO due to the cold factor in winter. just a thought I am sure there are other ideas/opinions but Kelly Hart who DID build his with scoria rock had a good result in Crestone CO area. see www.hartworks.com there are books and videos avail Charmaine > Charmaine Taylor Publishing www.dirtcheapbuilder.com PO BOX 375 CUTTEN CA 95534 Tel: 707-441-1632 MORE Building DVDs in stock On Jun 17, 2006, at 9:03 AM, Dane Laverty wrote: > Hello, I'm new here on the forum.
