in Sustainable Building Materials

Why develop the same old cookie cutter community crap that everyone else does?  Aside from the fact that McMansions built out of Styrofoam and formaldehyde suck ass I mean.  It is not for lack of good examples.

Michael Reynolds, architect, developer, visionary of the Earthship Biotecture may be a bit hippy dippy at first, but his point is damn well taken: housing can be constructed to have a no resource footprint.  His communities are true models for long term sustainable living.  Thinking about our future, housing must be built this way; we cannot consume at our current level, the global changes already underway are catastrophic enough without us continuing to dig the hole deeper.

The following piece will give you a taste of his vision, and if you want more watch the documentary Garbage Warrior – it will give you that kick in the ass you need.

I know what I would like to do – make one of these in the middle of San Francisco.  Now all I need to do is figure out how.

Internet is a source of infoimatron and knowledge. But there are so many sites in net which are nothing but gibberish. But when I visit your site e28093 I felt that e28093 in net there are lots of sites (like this) from where I can get lot of infoimatron too. And if I say truly e28093 your site is fantastic. Ie28099ve bookmarked your site in my browser; I hope in future days Ie28099ll get more valuable infoimatron from your site.
