Building with Grain Bins!
These structures are self-supporting, self-framing, highly insulated, maintenance free, disaster resistant, and recyclable. The same system can be used to make movable sound isolating interior partitions and exterior insulated, security panels, as well as go below grade for basements and frost foundations. This system can be used for anything from walk-in coolers to high-end resort hotels.
Mark Clipsham earned an architecture degree from Kansas Sate University in 1985 and has been designing and building ever since. He is constantly on the lookout for sustainable ways of doing things. We have posted several of his imaginative plans at www.dreamgreenhomes.com, including Grain Bin Cabin, Lake House, and Tri-Arm.
