Lilac - Affordable strawbale housing community in Bramley. Leeds apij Hedgehog Self Build Hedgehog Self Build: Brighton UK The project began in 1996, when a small group of local people without permanent housing became aware of the recently completed Diggers Self Build Project in Brighton, itself an innovative ecological project in Brighton. The four people who initiated the project were all in housing need with little hope of being rehoused by Brighton council, and saw another self build project as a means of enabling them to literally build a future for their children. They used the contacts and structures as put together for the Diggers project to initiate this project with the council - and encountered a positive response. They then spent a good two years building up the group, lobbying councillors and publicising the initiative, and were eventually rewarded with the offer of a beautiful (tho' difficult to develop) site. The houses will be for rent at a discount from the standard Housing Association rate. article by Robin Hillier

VEGETAL DESIGN TEAM présenté par ECODESIGN FAB LAB Objectif : Cette campagne de crowdfunding a pour but de financer l’accompagnement des designers au delà de leur savoir-faire. Nous désirons créer un modèle économique basé sur la relocalisation de la production via les fab labs et fabriques de quartiers. La rémunération des designers se fera via un site e-commerce permettant : > Le téléchargement de plans via un micro - paiement, > L'achat des objets entièrement fabriqués, > Le recensement des fabs labs et fabriques de quartier partenaires, > La mise en vente des objets via des circuits de distributions classiques, > La mise en avant des designers. Pour alimenter ce futur site, nous voulons accueillir et accompagner 12 designers en résidence pendant 4 semaines. Par équipe de 3, ils auront pour objectif de concevoir et fabriquer plusieurs gammes d'objets fonctionnels à partir de matériaux récupérés. Votre soutien permettra de rassembler des talents, de leur donner les moyens nécessaires pour les lancer sur le devant de la scène.

Increasing the number of available homes - Policies Issue For decades, there have not been enough homes to meet the needs of our growing and ageing population. From 2009 to 2010, only 115,000 new-builds were completed in England – fewer than any year in peace time since the 1920s and nearly a quarter of a million homes in England have stood empty for more than 6 months. The housing market is also one of the biggest casualties of the 2008 global credit crunch and the government’s priority has been to rectify a situation where lenders couldn’t lend, so builders couldn’t build and buyers couldn’t buy. Actions The government wants builders, investors and local councils to increase the supply of both new-builds and repurposed empty homes. removing unnecessarily complex regulations providing finance for projects that can’t proceed without it helping buyers who can’t afford to buy a home because they can’t afford the deposit We’ve created a £570 million Get Britain Building investment fund for developers. We’ve introduced the New Homes Bonus.

Kerto-Q – LVL panel ​Kerto-Q is a load-bearing, bracing and dimensionally stable LVL panel used in the most demanding structures. It can be used in Kerto-Ripa elements that enable stiff and high-quality floor and roof structures. The elements can be equipped with holes for HVAC equipment, and the load-bearing capacity is not reduced significantly. Kerto-Q is cross-bonded Kerto, meaning that one fifth of the veneers are glued crosswise. Full-length Kerto-Q is a popular material in floor and wall panels because it stabilizes the whole structure. Like all Kerto LVL products, Kerto-Q is known for its strength, straightness and dimensional stability.Kerto-Q is available in the same standard widths as Kerto-S.

Custom Build In Laying the Foundations – a Housing Strategy for England, the Government announced that it would be making up to £30m of funding available to provide short-term project finance to help unlock group custom build – or self-build - schemes. This is separate from the funding available for community led housing under the Affordable Homes Programme. The aims of the Custom Build fund are two-fold: To stimulate the growth of the Custom Build Homes market by enabling more multi-unit custom build home projects and attract more commercial lenders and investors to this market, thereby increasing the number of custom built homes developed annually over the next decade. We have published a prospectus setting out details of how interested bidders may apply. Projects should be outside London. As outlined in our Land Development and Disposal Plan, to help groups of prospective bidders access a supply of land for Custom Build schemes, a number of sites have already been brought to the market:
