It embraces all aspects of safely constructing vertical earthbag walls, discusses ways to insulate and plaster them, and talks about roof options and other details. It even introduces the revolutionary Hyperadobe concept from Brazil! This is a powerful resource. The point-by-point instructions are a wonderful quick reference, and the detailed explanations explain every aspect of each step from foundation to roof.

The look is excellent, the length is excellent. You really seem to cover the whole process and I like your step-by-step explanations. I read the whole thing in one sitting. I will use this as a reference manual next time I build. I loved this book and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in earthbag construction. It is concise, detailed, easy to follow, and beautifully illustrated. I want to congratulate you for being successful in all of these areas and for creating such an extremely well organized and useful guide to earthbag building.

I have not seen any of the techniques written any more precisely or accurately than you have here. Nor do I believe that you have forgotten or overlooked any key concepts. I believe this is a first class instruction manual on earthbag construction and I have learned quite a few things from it myself.

I love the way you have seamlessly incorporated internet-based resources into your instructions. I think this approach will be wildly successful and extremely helpful to the reader. Best of luck, Owen. I look forward to seeing it in print and putting it to use in the field. Many homes will be built from it. I will be referring to it often in my own projects and look forward with keen interest to forthcoming titles from this talented researcher. This book is like having a coach with you on site who shares his wonderful knowledge step-by-step.

This is the best investment, in time and money, any Architect, Engineer, Builder, or Home Owner can make. I love this book. Bill Taha, S.
