Well, mud and logs. And a bit of straw bale. Most of the materials came off the land where it is built.
A house the sequesters tons of carbon. Zero paint, glue or cement. The heat from the summer heats the house through the winter.
The heat from the summer heats the house through the winter. What does this mean exactly?
That's good and all. But isn't it hot in the afternoon? Is the heat not searing in the house? I just thought.a form of geothermal energy storage and harvest.
it is common in northern areas and alternative construction to bury pipes that you can move air through (passively is best, but if you have solar energy during a hot day you can move air via fans too) and that heat will be absorbed during the hot days and cool air will trade for the heat during the cold times. underground is usually a fairly stable temperature in comparison to the air temperature.
