The Making of an 'Earthbag' Bedroom.

My post about the passage grave in Skåne made me think about how it might be possible to build a dwelling in a similar way - by using the materials to be had around.  There are no stones in this area, but plenty of dirt... add plastic (which I don't really like, but let's forget that bit for the moment) and you have: A new little house! 
This construction journey video is just wonderful on many levels, not least that of the relationships strengthened.
