Our October 2022 Earthbag Tiny House Workshop

Well, we had another bangin’ workshop, folks! Numbers wise, this was our biggest yet with about twenty people in attendance. I only managed to get a picture of part of the group. Someone else took a picture of the other half and I was going to clumsily cobble the two together with my mediocre photoshop skills but the other person never sent the picture! Lesson learned!

The particular design we were working on this time has turned out to be one of my favorites. It is a round house with a large, flat panel on the south side to invite yummy winter sun inside! This will allow for free heating in the winter months and also give the positive psychological effects of plenty of light.

A big thanks to all of the folks who came and made it such a fun experience. I love every group. Every one is unique and special.

The pictures below are in chronological order.

Thanks for reading! Morgan.

    Hey I’m blessed to be involved with a Garden space and soil revitalization project geared towards community love and teaching children.One of the projects is build a straw bale cob wall for esthetics and to help spread natural building techniques I’ve studied this in depth but need to put together a more comprehensive group as it takes one to do this smoothly and need help in bringing this to fruition.We are located in Trinidad Colorado and this is being funded by EARTH MOUNTAIN EDUCATION FARM.Any information you have of groups in the area that would be willing to come pay it forward and help develop a safe green space would be invaluable please call me directly @719-680-8165 or email me @ Thank you and blessings, Amo
