My apologies if someone has already linked this. Yet another Stumble find for me.
I am intrigued by this, does anyone have any experience or opinions when it comes to this sort of construction? I like that farther down the page they mention that you can use hemp bags as well...

I told my hubby that i would like to buy some land and build a great big home like this, make it all funky and most definitely grow things on/around it.. i want to grow most, if not all of our food, have some solar panels set up.. it could be pretty sweet :)

Gotta love that idea I try to grow some of our food and we do trade the harvest with neighbours but it's not alot yet slowly growing and digging more gardens .... need to fix a tiller :) by the spring. Out to shovel snow now... dream all winter about where everything must go

these look cool, I live in northern alberta, i wonder if they would be good for -40C. I'm sure you could build them thick enough to insulate for the cold... I have land back home on the reserve with no land taxes or anything and I live in the city and pay rent... stuff like this makes me wonder what the hell im doing
