Building Your Dream House...with dirt

Well, I finally made it to Wyoming. My next step is to build a house on the new propery. Unfortunately, my property doesn't have lodge poles, so I guess I will build it with dirt.
Using the book "Earthbag Building" I am figuring out how to build my mortgage-free home. I'll keep you posted.
So far, I have 50 chickens, 4 goats, and a floating foundation on the house. I also have the radon barrier, and the plumbing stubbed in... so now I need to get the walls and roof on before the weather gets cool again.

It would be nice if you could provide some pictures of what you are up to with this construction.
