Hi folks.... I would think that there are too many variables to get a clear cut answer, but thought I would throw it out there to the group. How thick does a concrete foundation need to be for alternative built homes ?? Would a wall made of cob, plastered strawbales, earthbags weigh more then a commonly made ' stick ' house wall ?? Granted the stick wall ought to be lighter....but all the weight is focused on the four inches. Where as the other forms the weight is spread over at least 16 inches...and most more then that.
