A Manual for Building an Earthbag Shelter
It is necessary to draw an outline for the intended wall at the construction site that follows the plan for what you are building. 1. Find the center of the circle and pound in a steel post. Tie a rope to the base of the post. 2. Tie a steel pole to the other end of the rope. 3. The length of the out-stretched rope will be the radius of the circle for the shelter. 4. By stretching the rope, draw a circle with a steel pole attached to the other end of the rope, just like making a circle with a compass. 5. The steel pole in the middle of the circle will be used as a guide when piling the earthbags, so it should remain there.
