Up-cycled door for the Earthbag Dome

| Building, Natural Building | comments | Author :

No-one knows how old this door is – it came off a shed that pre-dates Nick’s family taking over this farm… bet you its maker never imagined that it would wind up keeping the wind out of a earthbag dome, high on the ridge at Milkwood Farm…

Shane sanded this door back, oiled it and added some beaut hinges (also scavenged). Then he put a little window in it, cut the top to fit the curve of the shape of the door hole, made a curved door frame (no mean feat) made a step, and there you go. One solid door, good for at least another 100 years.

  1. The finished product looks fantastic…….Also I have some photos of the curved frame in construction if you would like (i think this is what i helped with, but correct me if I’m wrong Kirsten!)

  2. I was very impressed with the Earthbag dome when I was at the Farm on the last weekend. Worth considering using these materials when I am building structures in the future.
