could you live in an earthbag house????

I know this really has nothing to do with faux, design or much of what I post about but HEY…this is very interesting and why not.  If it is something that could be built for disaster relief areas instead of the FEMA trialers, I would think that would be a better alternative. I would love to have one myself for a studio.

  2. That sounds like something to do some research on thank you for the heads up…and no I couldn’t imagine.
