EARTH | Sarah’s Closet

Sarah on the job. This being her project for Prescott College course: The Ecology of Construction..

Volunteers, Thalia and Aubrey, learning about earthbag building.

Sarah tamping earthbag walls for this barrel-vault storage closet.

Aaron napping? Note: Wooden strip anchors in earthbag wall to attach door later.


The arch has been cast, form still in place. Cosmos approves!

Removing the form, getting by with a little help from my friend (Thank you Jeff!).

Happy to have cast my first vault; been wanting to do this for years! It was good to start on a small project.

Vault is ready for final plaster coat and door. The fourth wall (not visible) will be cast papercrete.
