Roundhouse Studio Plan

Roundhouse Studio Plan
Perfect for home offices and studios of all kinds, and also as a tiny house. Ideal beginner's project. This studio is one of the simplest, most practical of my designs. Multiple units can be connected if you want to add on later or they can be built as free standing structures in clusters pavilion style. Numerous roof options available. 177 sq. ft. interior, fold-out bed, 1 bath: footprint: 18' diameter, plus buttress. My main goal has been to reduce the cost of housing, while also making the designs sustainable, easy to build and livable. Cost: How much do earthbag houses cost? Kitchens: A great deal of thought has gone into the kitchens I design. Baths: Most baths are standard 5 feet wide. Floors: I recommend floors made of earth, stone or recycled brick. Plaster: Most people use earth or lime plaster on earthbag houses. Heat: Wood stoves serve as the heating system in virtually all my designs. Windows: All windows are standard sizes. Doors: Exterior doors are all 36" wide.
