Earthbag Village Tools and Equipment

This page is the open source and free-shared Earthbag home and village construction tools and equipment needs page that will evolve with the open source project-launch blueprinting of the One Community Earthbag Village (Pod 1). The goal of this page is to provide precise tool and equipment needs for every component of the Earthbag Village.

We discuss these areas with the following sections:

This page will continue to evolve until building the Earthbag Village is complete and we can definitively say exactly what tools and equipment were used for every aspect of our build – and how different tools and equipment affected our build. After that, we will further evolve this page with the help and data from those around the world building additional Earthbag teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities using our blueprints.

EARTHBAG VILLAGE
TOOLS & EQUIPMENT NEEDS

open source equipment, sourcing equipment, what equipment you need, eco-equipment selection, Highest Good equipment, tools and equipment, earthbag tools and equipment, straw bale tools and equipment, cob tools and equipment, earth block tools and equipment, green tools and equipment, earthship tools and equipmentThis page is specifically for the tools and equipment details of the Earthbag Village. As part of our global transformation approach to Highest Good housing, our goal is to continuously update this page with resources to make earthbag construction tools and equipment sourcing and acquisition as easy as possible. For details on the other aspects of the Earthbag Village (building plans, materials lists and cost analysis, time investment, etc.) visit the complete list of links on the EARTHBAG VILLAGE OPEN SOURCE HUB.

We’re sharing here the equipment needs divided into sections and also for the complete village. This is because each component is meant to be replicable as either an individual component or as the village. As we build the complete village we’ll continuously update this page until we are 100% clear on every tool needed to construct each of the following areas discussed here:

Note: We are currently seeking companies that would like to partner with our 501(c)3 non-profit organization to provide direct and affordable consumer bulk tool and equipment purchases. Our goal is to reduce consumer prices while increasing the profit margin for companies because the orders will be large and direct. We feel this will make duplication of all 7 sustainable village models even easier. Visit our Win-Win-Win-Win page to understand our partnering philosophy and our Marketing and Promotional Engine Page for the specifics on additional ways we can support those interested in being a part of world change with One Community.

Highest Good society, fulfilled living, enriched life, enriching life, living to live, how to live an enriched life, keeping it all running, sustainable living, social architecture, fulfilled living, thriving, thrivability, emotional sustainability, the good life, a new way to liveHere is the detailed inventory of all tools and equipment needed for four teams of 10 to build (click here for time investment projections) the entire Earthbag Village and all of its components. We will engage this list as an on-going process of updating and refining until the entire build is complete, inventorying every tool and piece of equipment needed for each component of the build, so that when we are complete we can give a definitive and final tools and equipment analysis and cost spreadsheet for each component and the whole build, along with where the best places were that we found for purchasing everything.

So far this list includes:

  • All equipment (plus backup equipment) to build the 75 domes and patios
Tool and equipment for earthbag construction, tools for building with earth bags, earthbag village, One Community, sustainable living, green living, eco-living

SUMMARY

open source equipment, sourcing equipment, what equipment you need, eco-equipment selection, Highest Good equipment, tools and equipment, earthbag tools and equipment, straw bale tools and equipment, cob tools and equipment, earth block tools and equipment, green tools and equipment, earthship tools and equipmentThe purpose of our organization is to make the building of self-propagating self-sufficient teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities as easy as possible. One aspect of this is clearly defining exactly what tools and equipment are needed for duplication of the complete Earthbag Village and also each of the major components within the village. This page is the results of our research and it will evolve with even more details as we build the Earthbag Village and identify through our experience the best tools and equipment to use, any tools and equipment we may not have accounted for, and ways or companies that can reduce the price for acquiring all needed tools and equipment. We will open source these details here as they evolve.

 

FREQUENTLY ANSWERED QUESTIONS

Q: What is the purpose of the Earthbag Village?

Please see the complete Earthbag Village open source hub: Click Here

Q: I found a broken link or incorrect price on the spreadsheet, what should I do?

Until One Community actually builds the Earthbag Village, all Tools & Equipment spreadsheets/pages will only be periodically updated and checked for accuracy (if at all), as price data and website pages change very frequently. If you are looking to buy the product in question, you can simply Google the name of it to find it or a comparable product.

Q: How do you intend to keep track of all the tools and equipment for each component?

We will use the community project management software we are developing to log everything as it is used and appoint a Project Foreman to oversee and double check the details.

Q: How do you intend to help bring prices down to facilitate duplication of your models as teacher/demonstration villages?

We have a Win-Win-Win-Win partnering philosophy combined with a significant marketing and promotional engine that we feel brings value to any partnership. We are using these tools and resources to seek partners with the global distribution capability who see the free marketing and new and expanding customer base we will provide as beneficial enough to be willing to reduce their consumer prices and individual profit in favor of volume sales and supporting global change.
