This prefab eco-home in the forest spins around at the push of a button to let in optimal sunlight Eighty miles from New York City’s bustling core is a rotating wooden structure, resembling an alien spacecraft and designed to withstand nearly any disaster. It is an ecological mansion of epic proportions that resides atop a 28-acre slot of land in New Paltz, with a number of unusually futuristic features, especially for a home carved out of organic wood and designed to fit snugly with the surrounding forested environment. Designed by Patrick Marsilli, the home known as Domespace, is one of two major concepts from Solaleya, an ecologically inspired architecture company with a mission to provide stunning, functional homes that preserve environmental integrity. The most interesting thing about the home, though, is that it can be rotated towards or away from the sun on demand. The Domespace is also a prefabricated model, meaning it was designed to pop up and take down quickly. The only downside, as you might expect, is that the home costs just shy of a million dollars, at $950,000.

Magical Dome House in Remote Thailand Constructed in Six Weeks for Just $8000! When most people imagine their dream home, they probably think of a large, sprawling vacation house that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. When Steve Areen thought about building his dream home, all he had to do was find $8,000 and a place to build. He did just that and, in a few weeks, he had a vacation home in the middle of Thailand that could make anyone drool. Steve was given a place on his friend Hajjar Gibran’s mango grove to build his home. With a Thai friend’s guidance, his son-in-law’s masonry skills and a lot of work, the team made progress quickly.

Green eco-friendly custom homes and interiors by Solaleya Designer Patrick Marsilli proposes a revolutionary solar structure Passive solar energy: Rotate your house away from the sun in summer to cool down and towards the sun in winter to warm up (on demand or automated rotation system). Optional Integrated solar panels to store energy as well as several possible ecological options for better energy efficiency. Structural strength: Anti-cyclonic Its aerodynamic form has proven resists without any damage to a wind up to 240km/hour (Taiwan Domespace resisted Cyclone Tim in 1994 and some others without deterioration). Anti-seismic The seismic ray that would make a 10 story building collapse turns around the ring gear of fixation without finding any perpendicularity. Every Domespace is erected over an elastomeric belt that works as a "silencer block"... like a piece of rubber that cushion vibrations. Arches are solidly anchored to a steel ring gear itself fixed to a pedestal made of reinforced concrete. Unparalleled structural integrity Pleasant habitat:

Maison à sec - en kit - Autoconstruction Construire à sec - Maison en bois 130m2 pour 170.000 Euros - 3 ch., séjour, cuisine à ossature bois - Architectes: Tectoniques est un collectif d'architectes français (Pierre-Yves Lebouc, Max Rolland, Alain Vargas et Raphaël Verboud) spécialisé dans les constructions écologiques et la filière sèche. L'agence joue une architecture « unplugged », simple, parfois rugueuse, un peu en marge des grosses productions « officielles ». Ses réalisations sont majoritairement construites en ossature bois, avec un niveau de préfabrication important et une utilisation limitée des mises en œuvre in situ. La construction idéale devrait s'apparenter à une opération de montage à sec, comme un mécano géant, rapide, propre et précis. Chaque nouveau projet ne fait pas l'objet d'une réinvention radicale.

La maisonnette à base de matériaux naturels, super-économique, et autonome en eau douce et en énergie (eau chaude et électricité)

Frameless Geodesic Dome What is it? It’s a frameless geodesic dome designed to be easy to fabricate and build. It is 18 feet wide at the widest point and about 13 feet tall. It feels very spacious for it’s 209 square foot floor. The dome shell is built out of 3/16” corrugated plastic and 3/4” blueboard foam insulation. There is no frame in this dome. The dome has a radial 2x4 floor system held up by cinder blocks. It has electricity and is heated with a single electric radiator and is cooled with an exhaust fan and small window sized air conditioner. The materials are all easily attainable and it cost about $2100 to build it at the time. The dome shell is also extremely easy to disassemble making it a portable structure. Hacking housing If I want to spend my time writing blog posts, exploring new programming languages, and other things that I want to do but I am unlikely to get paid for, it’s helpful to opt out of certain common expenses. Advocacy The short construction time of this dome is remarkable. Solar gain

Energy study reveals savings for Monolithic Dome home owners | Monolithic Dome Institute At last! Five years of utility data has been collected and summarized for our Monolithic Dome nestled along the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia. As a quick review, we constructed Serenity Dome in ‘09 -’10. Serenity is a Callisto-based, 2/3 oblate ellipsoid, 50-foot Monolithic Dome on a three foot stem wall, with window and door augments. We are all electric except for an outdoor wood stove. For benchmarks we used data from the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) who track and publish residential billing and usage. With the caveat, “Your results will vary,” here’s our five year summary of electric consumption at Serenity Dome, along with the 2014 data for Virginia and the USA. Our average monthly utility cost per square foot was 3 cents.

Calculette de valeur U Guide rapide Le calculateur de la valeur U examine le composant (par exemple, un mur, un toit, le plafond, ...) sur l'effet d'isolation, protection contre l'humidité et la protection de chaleur estivale: Choisissez des matériaux de construction à gauche et placez le matériaux sur toile. Ajoutez toutes les autres couches.À la fin, insérer des poutres en bois dans la couche d'isolation.Entrez toutes les couches de l'intérieur vers l'extérieur.Les poutres en bois sont insérées via le bouton dans une couche de matériau isolant. Les résultats plus importants sont affichés en bas de l'écran. Les calculs pour l'utilisation commerciale sont conformes à la norme DIN 6949 (valeur U), DIN 4108-3 (humidité) et DIN 68800-2 (réserve séchage). Remarques Les murs humides et moisis sont le cauchemar de nombreux constructeurs. En hiver, l'air ambiant chaud contient plus d'humidité que l'air froid à l'extérieur. La protection de l'humidité est particulièrement important pour des structures en bois.

Geodesic Dome Diary written by Rene K. Mueller, Copyright (c) 2007, last updated Tue, November 4, 2008 As I proceed I will update the diary. It has been almost a year since I pondered on the connectors for bamboo, because it seems it wasn't that easy to find something suitable. At has been a discussion with different approaches, yet, none really is convincing. Discussing with a friend of mine, who is a locksmith, brought up this design as the illustration shows, using a special foaming glue. The glue, named "Fermacell 59010", is slightly foaming or expanding and seals the 1-2mm gap seamlessly - as a few tests have shown: One bamboo I cleared using a cutter to remove the glue and see small bubbles, whereas the other the overflowing glue remained as comparison. I hope to keep the light bamboo as struts, but find more stable or rigid connectors. And then squeezing the end of the conduit and drill the 4mm hole for connecting the struts then. So I'm back in the yurt again. Update 2007/12/14:
