|How To Build "Really"
Imagine:A business where the business derives its power from the people who work there and money is used as a tool to serve the people.
Structures, LCA” reflects my desire to develop
a building system that is good for the planet.
Through GES our aim is to pinpoint the latest developments in building technology and to incorporate those judged to be the most sustainable while also remaining cost effective to build, maintain and operate.
These buildings must be healthy for the planet as well as the people living on it.
If you are expecting information on straw-bale construction - mud bricks - cobb - do it yourself dome homes - etc. you will be disappointed.
I consider building with any of these "building from the heart not the head".
They all may sound cool but they are not a solution for most of the worlds housing problem.
BUT... if you love the idea - go for it.
There is never to much art in the world!
I urge you to click around in this pile of info and see what I have found so far.

Tiny HomesI have been hearing more and more about the growing need for very small (Tiny) homes.
Seems there is a growing movement toward not wanting a MacMansion that requires huge amounts of material to build, is an energy hog and requires high maintenance. About Time!
Here are some sketches of a less than 400 square foot home that uses the technology I am playing with.
• It uses almost all recycled materials
• Fast and inexpensive to build
• Easily adaptable to your floor plans and sizes
• It is also SUPER energy efficient and will require Very Little maintenance
• It is also earthquake and hurricane proof •
