  • Bags should be placed so that the places where the bags on the previous row meet are covered by the bags on the subsequent row, just like brickwork.
    This improves robustness (as with bricks) and lets less air incoming.
  • When complete, the structure should be plastered as soon as possible to avoid prolonged exposure to the sun
  • be careful. Round shapes need to respect precise curves for the walls.
