I am not neccesarily looking for something that has to be green(sorry), but earthbag buildings do interest me. I want to build a home as cheaply and quickly as possible and this looks like the way to go. I think the area I am building in I could secure a permit, but I will be in an area where weather can dip as low as -30 degrees farenheit. The summer can get pretty hot too. Yesterday it was 90 degrees. First I am asking if connecting to city power and water would be more difficult with earthbags. Second, could two people who havent done the technique pull this off? We are very strong physically and I have done hundreds of DIY projects.
