Specifications: 565 sq. ft. interior, plus 291 sq. ft. tower (4 levels), 1 bedroom (fold-out bed), 1 bath, Footprint: 35′ x 45′

Description: This is my favorite design so far. I think it’s especially nice in elevation. The tower is built with earthbags since there’s no roof overhang. Scoria-filled earthbags would be an excellent choice, because scoria is lightweight, rot proof, insulating and easy to work with.
