Paul Majors and Lisa Alvarado-Majors have never built a house before but that’s not stopping them from building an EARTHBAG home in Garfield, Arkansas. They expect to finish in only 3-4 months. They are determined to stick to the 00 budget while showing others how they can do the same. Paul Majors is a mechanical contractor and services many commercial restaurants in the Northwest Arkansas area and Lisa Alvarado-Majors is an artist and independent filmmaker. The EARTHBAG home is made of old tires, sand bags, cans and bottles, adobe, and other recycled materials. It has no wood frame work, no attic, no shingles, no central air, no trim and can cost less than 00 to build. It is the greenest form of modern living using recycled materials, recycled water systems, natural resources found on the land, and is more sound and sturdy than traditional box-shaped homes. The EARTHBAG home has better air flow due to it’s shape, is fire-proof, termite-proof, and is more likely to withstand natural disasters.
