Earthbag Rural Retreat, CARRANCAS BRAZIL


This project was for a private client wanting a weekender in the mountainous state of Minas Gerais. The house was constructed over a period of 3 mths and was one of our first earthbag houses, meaning that many new techniques to do with this were still being tried and tested. You will notice that there are no buttresses what-so-ever and very large openings for the windows and doors – not usually recommended! But this was a very successful project, completed on time and with no complications and now well loved by it’s owners.
