History 2013: Building 250 meter EarthBag Wall at Hacienda Eco-Domes


This video shows our Earthbag Punish project, now called Hacienda Eco-Domes, from the very start.

  1. First, we cleaned up the 6600m2 lot.
  2. Then we built the property wall out of earthbags (super adobe); basically plastic bags filled with dirt.
  3. After a few missteps and a wall crash disaster (the learning curve is tough!), we finally figured it out and were able to build a huge 250-meter-long property wall made from dirt, water, plastic bags, barbed wire, and cement.

It was a huge task. It took 10 of us about 3 months to complete. But once finished, we felt like we had enough hands-on experience to attempt more domes and rectangle the main building; which we did.

And by 2018, we have Hacienda Eco-Domes open for business!

What a ride!

I owned a record label producing the 3rd Wave SKA band The Skeletones. But now, I am pushing my personal artistic boundaries into the 21st century creating diverse music.
