Building Earth Bag/Turf Walls & Sun Room

Building Earth Bag/Turf Walls & Sun Room

After building an earthbag structure, we built turf walls and underground passive annual heat storage (PAHS). Then we added an earthbag sunroom on the east side of our house to add more thermal mass. By combining these system, our house is 10C to 12C warmer inside than outside in the winter, and 8C to 10C cooler in the summer.

PAHS is so awesome!  Very cool that you are sharing this with us.
