I began this as a spring/summer project but had to relocate for work before I could complete it.  It is round, appx 15 feet in diameter, and the current wall height from interior floor is appx 6 feet.

Below is a link to my listing for it on Zillow, as well as the description that I put on Zillow. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/00-Codorniz-Rd-SW-Deming-NM-88030/2081399109_zpid/

10.6 acres of undeveloped land with a partially completed earthbag building, amazing views (all photos were taken on the property), total privacy and peaceful quiet come with this high desert off-grid property. The current owner started the earthbag building as a recreation project but had to move out of the area because of work. This is the opportunity of a lifetime for someone who wants to get a major head-start on an earth-bag building / possible tiny home. Use this as 'building 1' and expand from there.

Water is available under the land. f you want to install a water well, the estimated depth to drill is 70 feet. And, with more than 288 sunny days per year, solar power is an easy option.

All surrounding lots are vacant meaning you have total privacy and peace. Property is appx 17 miles from the heart of downtown Deming, which makes it close enough for shopping and social activities, yet far enough from Highway 10 so that there is no highway noise at all.

There is an appx 3/4 mile dirt road leading to the property, which is currently not maintained by the County. All roads leading to the property prior to that are County-maintained.

The earth-bag building is 15 feet in diameter, with a current wall height of appx. 6 feet. A 4x4 window frame and 7 ft high door frame are in place. There are currently 2 coats of plaster covering the bags. The interior floor is between 2 and 3 feet beneath the ground which adds natural climate control, to keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The labor and materials already put into the earthbag building has a value of well over $4,000. The land alone has a value of $8,000. Also included are appx $500 worth of tools and supplies. Feel free to ask questions.

Asking $8,500.

Hi, Good progress on the Earth bag building! You did lots of work and the building has lots of potential.  I was an apprentice of the late Nader Khalili who founded Cal-Earth Institute and developed Earth bag architecture. I tried for years to get a permit to build one without success from the County of San Diego, CA. But I built a pad, installed septic, well, water tank fire hydrant foodforest and restored some native plant species. I'm now sell my land. I have a post "Homestead in SoCal for sale" in case anyone is interested.

Good luck,

Janie

Just saw this, Paul, and all I can say is Wow!  From where I stand that seems like a hell of a deal.  I think you can drill 70' pretty easily with a home-made rig.  Hopefully someone can make this work for them.
