Green Home Building and Sustainable Architecture

Sustainable architecture is an exciting and important field, with many people reviving traditional methods of building and others creating innovations to established practices. Kelly Hart, webmaster of the popular website www.greenhomebuilding.com, posts text and photos featuring what he discovers from around the world.

Volumetric, Continuous Mixing of Cement and other Materials

I just posted some information about the possibilities of using volumetric, continuous mixing technologies to not only mix concrete on-site, but also a wide range of other, perhaps greener materials as well. For instance, earthen materials for adobe, cob, or rammed earth projects could be mixed and placed at the building site almost instantaneously. All that is needed is the equipment to do so and stockpiles of the ingredients. Other applications of this technology could be in conjuction with the computerized creation of entire houses, using CAD files and robot-assisted nozzles. It is a brave new world!

I have been searching your site for pictures of your earth bag home but haven't been able to find any. Can you point me to them?
