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.

Geo-synthetics and fiber-clay can be combined into a simple building medium. They can make inexpensive housing comfortable and strong enough for seismic zones. My top-placing entry to the $300 House Contest was inspired by Owen Geiger of s innovations with mesh and with light clay. 6 inches/ cm. 11 These estimates are for handy amateurs. 12 ABOUT BUILD SIMPLE INC.

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. Je construis ma maison en kit - Les maisons en kit ont le vent en poupe ! La maisonnette à base de matériaux naturels, super-économique, et autonome en eau douce et en énergie (eau chaude et électricité)

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 EN ISO 6946 (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.

Dome Homes - Lexa Dome Homes Ltd. Projects – Natural Living School 2017 Projects: This year we worked on two separate projects. Cody, my 2015 apprentice, trained as a Foreman and ran his own project, building a round wood timber framed, bale cob art studio. Cody did a great job, with the help of this years apprentices. Martha’s art studio: Nina’s Timber Framed, Earth bag structure. 2016 Project We had a wonderful year. We also started the construction of our family home. 2015 Project We had the honor to start on the construction of a single family dwelling for a beautiful family in our community. We had a wonderful group of apprentices, karma yogi’s, volunteers, and teachers. 2014 Projects This year we had the great privilege to work for and with some amazing souls. We also built a beautiful natural structure for Yogoata Dairy. We also had the honor to build for a close neighbor who needed a bale cob pump house. Overall 2014 was a great success. 2013 Projects This year was jam packed with many projects of all shapes and sizes. 2012 Project, The Bale-Cob Shop

Freemen Domes Concrete Domes, Biotecture, Basalt, Monolithic Calcul fondations, calculer taille fondation maison - Fondation et Sous-Sol - Maison construction Le but n'est pas de faire de vous des bureaux d'études béton et rien re remplacera le calcul que fera l'architecte ou le bureau d'étude ; cet article est simplement une approche qui vous permettra de découvrir et de comprendre ce qui se joue en-dessous de votre habitation. On a tendance à confondre poids et masse et, pour simplifier, à faire une équivalence Kg et Newton... Même si ce n'est pas rigoureusement exact, nous resterons sur cette base pour des raisons de simplification... 1Kg= 10 Newton ou 1Kg= 1da/N Fondations et typologies de terrains..... Tout d'abord qui dit fondation dit nature du sol : en effet, un sol naturel ou non, est capable de supporter une charge qui s'exprime en pression admissible, à savoir quel poids le sol peut-il supporter sans s'affaisser ? On peut distinguer 7 typologies de terrains à la portance très différente : Les indices de pression sont exprimés en Newton/mm², l'échelle est la suivante : Calcul de la taille de vos fondations Epaisseur des fondations h=a x √3
