I just had a cool thought, an earthship circular wall up to 5 or 6 feet then earth bag dome on top. Then berm around the earth ship section. Might even have the entrance up at the top of the earthship section. Then stairs downward into the lower section following the wall around and down. Heck the tire wall could be made to go inside where it should meet and be the stairs itself. I need to draw this up. Then a loft area might go in part of the upper section. could use vegas that extend through the earth bag wall for floor joist. I’d do it all above grade as well. I’d protect the earth ship wall with pond liner material.
