Last year Elliot Guyasce appointed Sally Francis as Construction Manager for the building of a 5 metre high earthbag dome on his land at Bagend, Murcia, Spain. She managed a workforce of 15 volunteers and work-shoppers to complete the construction of the dome in only 11 building days in temperatures exceeding 37˚ Celsius (100˚ Fahrenheit)!
The structure has a front door & back door, 3 windows, a floating staircase and a platform floor. Sally had studied earthbag building with the Sussex-based architect Paulina Wojciechowska of Earth, Hands and Houses.
Further workshops will involve applying earth plasters to the exterior and interior of the dome, and making an earthen floor.
