Building With Non-Recyclable Cardboard Bales. When we first saw Rich Messer and Ann Dowden’s home built using bales made from laundry detergent boxes (which can’t be recycled because they’re coated in wax), set on a foundation made from bales of postconsumer PVC trash (toys, laundry baskets, shampoo bottles) we thought it was brilliant.

Building With Non-Recyclable Cardboard Bales

Through the years, that snug little house—which looks just like a straw bale—has remained one of my favorites. I love to see people’s reactions when they realize the house is made from garbage. It seems so logical—such a natural use of an abundant unnatural resource. Yet the idea is just now starting to catch on. A team of Auburn University students has built a student housing apartment using a similar method, which they call Curocon (corrugated construction).

For quite a few construction projects in ancient history, this type of crane would be completely inadequate. The majority of stones that make up the almost 140 discovered Egyptian pyramids have a weight of "only" 2 to 3 tonnes each, but all of these structures (built between 2750 and 1500 BC) also hold stone blocks weighing 50 tonnes, sometimes more.

Wood Magazine's Solar Kiln

One attendee of last year's Weekend With WOOD caught me between classes to thank the WOOD staff for planning and hosting the event. He told me how much he learned during the class sessions, how he enjoyed meeting the world-class teachers and fellow attendees, and more.

From PESWiki Page first featured January 14, 2010 "The Walipini utilizes nature’s resources to provide a warm, stable, well-lit environment for year-round vegetable production. Locating the growing area 6’- 8’ underground and capturing and storing daytime solar radiation are the most important principles in building a successful Walipini. " [1] A directory of resources pertaining to the Walipini underground greenhouse mothod developed by the Benson Institute in Provo Utah. One of the main principles involves embedding the greenhouse in the earth to take advantage of the earth's constant temperature, to store the solar energy collected during the day.

The solar gain comes through a light-permeable material such as plastic, Visqueen, polycarbinate. The word "Walipini" comes from the Aymara Indian language and means "place of warmth". The Walipini was first developed more than 20 years ago; deployed in South and Central America. Official Website Videos The Power Hour, Jan. 15, 2010 Photo Gallery.

The Ultimate Brown Paper Flooring Guide. Check out my floors in the May/June 2012 issue of Natural Home and Garden! Also featured in the November 2012 issue of WNC Woman! My brown paper floors are by far my most viewed content, at the top of the list for FAQs, and seen more on Pinterest than anything else I’ve done. I think that’s kinda cool for such an easy and cheap floor solution! But I cannot take credit for this method alone, I originally saw this idea in a magazine that featured Jami from An Oregon Cottage.

I changed a few things about the process to suit my tastes, but her site is also a great resource. I wanted to put all the details in one place (instead of scattered over several posts) to make it easier for you to start your project. MATERIALECOLOGY: Neri Oxman. Arte y Artesanía Andaluza. Natural materials. Materiales utilizados en viviendas tradicionales. Los materiales siempre han estado ligados al aprovechamiento de elementos localizados en la misma zona. La piedra caliza ha sido el material base en todas las construcciones por la facilidad de obtención, resistencia y durabilidad. Esta tipología característica tiene su origen en la prehistoria ya que se utilizaba para proteger la entrada de las cuevas donde se refugiaban, dando lugar así, a las primeras formas de arquitectura de piedra donde la estética, el arte o el estilo no contaba, porque sólo se buscaba lo práctico.

The Hand-Sculpted House. Cob building - when clay isn't clay (green building forum at permies)

LOL - the idea of a "cob expert" telling you, "They should have sent a sample off to a lab to be sure. " They might, however, recommend building something small as a test case. Make a few bricks. Make an earthen oven, garden wall, or chicken-house. Adjust the mix to suit local soils. Let it dry out, thump it a bit, and see how it does. Cob is like baking bread: the secret to a consistent loaf is knowing when to adjust the recipe. BIO-PLASTIC HANKBOOK 2011.
