Superadobe comes to LM!!!

Finally my vision of building a small eco-efficient casita has come to fruition - although not quite completed yet, I thought I would share the results to perhaps inspire others to use this method of construction. Not only is it environmentally and economically friendly but also easy to build and anybody can learn it. I attended a 3 day workshop and with Anaxazi's guidance who had some experience with adobe, we managed to pull it off! It's basically a form of earthbag construction whereby long polypropylene bags are filled with adobe to form a compression structure and plastered with adobe. Great insulation and earthquake resistant.
