My husband always wanted to cover a mobile home with strawbales, rather than building a strawbale home from scratch, but now we're in south Texas with so much humidity, that doesn't seem very do-able. We want an intern or apprentice on our place, but providing housing and utilities is necessary, and old mobile homes are horrendous wasters of a/c and heat. So, I wondered if anyone had explored retrofitting an old mobile home with the earthbags? This is essentially sandbagging around the perimeter of the home, including the skirting area, then plastering to protect the integrity of the bags. Anybody done anything like this? Hopefully it would provide a more pleasing appearance than a cruddy trailer, provide an earth barrier of insulation, with minimal cost.
