I am not too sure they have a code for earthbag?
I would do a quick google search to see who else have build one near you and see who they used or if they can help.
I would also love to know if your are going to build a food forest and if so what plants you are going to get.
Someday hopefully I will get to where you are at and I will be able to build my home.
I recommend going on the county web site and making sure about codes. Daily fines and taking down the structure are possibilities.
Jim Grieco wrote:Hello everyone! Just saw this thread and wanted to jump in. We have land outside of Seligman, AZ and are seriously considering an earth bag home. Off-grid no codes. We actually have bags already and are visiting Cal Earth this weekend for their open house. We are far from being an expert but are happy to get in on the discussion

I am starting an earthbag hybrid project in Idaho until winter comes (first experience with earthbags). After fall I will be available in Arizona to help with earthbag or any natural building project if needed.
