Our mission is to empower ourselves and others with natural building and sustainable living techniques.



I have been editing the footage for Dirt Simple: How We Built an Earthbag Tiny House for Under $1500 and have also decided to release it in weekly installments as an Online Earthbag Tiny House Course. Click anywhere on the link above or anywhere on this highlighted text for more information. This course is 50% off until the end of July!

Our Story:


Morgan and Mary Jane have been homesteading off-grid since before they built their first earthbag home in 2009. They held their initial public workshops in 2011, while building a sun room addition on to their earthbag roundhouse. In 2016 they started construction on a larger earthship-inspired earthbag house and have held regular natural building and sustainable living workshops ever since. In September of 2019, they held a workshop to build an earthbag tiny house, foundation to roof. That build was documented and has become the basis for the Online Earthbag Tiny House Course and the instructional video, Dirt Simple: How We Built an Earthbag Tiny House for Under $1500.

Why build with earthbags?


Earthbags are a great medium for building strong, versatile, inexpensive structures. They can be used in applications that would be too moist for wood, cob, or strawbale. They can be used to build above and below ground houses, sheds, root cellars, stemwalls, greenhouses, walipinis, freestanding walls, cisterns, spring boxes, storm and emergency shelters, pools, steps, and many, many other things. Earthbags are non-toxic, fireproof, bugproof, moldproof, rotproof, bulletproof, impactproof, and floodproof.

Are you interested in hosting a workshop or having help building your own earthbag tiny house, cabin, or other structure? Please contact Morgan using the form at the bottom of the page.
