It will be interesting to see how many people opt to live in these alternative homes.

Eco-Dome, Building a Small Home

Published on Aug 7, 2013

http://naturenco.fr // https://facebook.com/NatureNCO This film shows how a pile of earth, dug out from the building site, is turned into a small house called Eco- Dome (moon cocoon model), using the Superadobe technology. It documents how professionals and students from many countries training at Cal-Earth Institute built this structure. It is intended for use with materials and tools developed for instruction during the apprenticeship retreat at Cal-Earth. Superadobe technology was first presented by the architect to NASA for lunar habitats, and can build single or clustered homes on earth which are resistant to fire, floods, wind storms and earthquakes.

I Didn’t Know That : Concrete Tent

Published on Mar 5, 2013

Watch Richard Ambrose and Jonny Phillips quickly construct a building made of concrete canvas—a material that has all the elements of concrete, but is flexible enough to be turned into any shape. This technology allows people to erect permanent structures in a fraction of the time needed for traditional building techniques.

Ditch Lining – Willow Creek Mine, Canada.

Published on Jan 25, 2013

Following the recent success of a 52’000sqm CC installation in the Alta Montaña III region of Chile, CC was specified CC in Canada as a protective liner for a large carrier ditch, directing mining industrial waste water from Willow Creek mine to a nearby settling pond.

The contractors completed the work on schedule in under six weeks, installing over 10,000sqm of CC in a remote site and in difficult weather conditions.

A slope protection project using Concrete Canvas.

In August 2012, Concrete Canvas assisted the Al Jais road construction project lead contractor GMC in installing slope protection for 3 out of the total of 50 culverts along the route. The 3 culverts were installed in 3 days, working between 6am and 12am due to the heat and Ramadan. The largest of the culverts measured 7m wide with a run of 35m on a slope of approximately 60 degrees. This was installed in approximately 7 hours.

Concrete Cloth is a revolutionary material technology that has a wide range of applications in the construction and defence industries. Visit www.concretecanvas.co.uk for further information. Essentially a cement impregnated fabric, the material is flexible and can conform to complex curvatures. Once hydrated, the material hardens to form a durable, water proof and fire proof concrete layer.

Inspiring Shipping Container Homes Designs

Shipping Container As An Underground Shelter

Uploaded on Dec 23, 2009

Final attempt to record building of an underground shelter using a 20 ft. shipping container. For those wondering why I didn’t simply pile dirt over it without pouring a concrete cap first….. These containers are mostly sheet metal. Heavy duty as it is, the roof and sides will push inwards from the weight. Eventually the metal will rust through and you’ll be buried alive. My way will insure it is still there a few hundred years from now. Problem is, you’d better keep an eye on your sump pump. If it goes bad or loses power, you’ll go in one day and find it the whole thing flooded. A surface alarm letting you know the water level is above where it should be isn’t a bad idea. Putting the sump pump on a UPS is also a good thing.

Shipping container family home: building blocks in Redwoods

Published on Jul 7, 2013

Kam Kasravi and Connie Dewitt wanted a modern cabin that wouldn’t disrupt the Redwoods on their property. First they considered prefabs, but quickly realized they wouldn’t fit up the narrow road to their land in the Santa Cruz mountains. So they convinced their friend, architect David Fenster, to design them a home made from shipping containers.

Built from recycled cargo containers hand-picked from the Port of Oakland, Six Oaks was built around the footprint of the land. The containers were building blocks that were cut and stacked to fit between Redwoods along a steep grade.

While the home was assembled in 6 hours, it took nearly a year to finish the interior since so much of it was custom. The unique materials meant some unique requirements: instead of carpenters, they used welders; a commercial roofer had to be hired, etc.

Acoording to Connie, it wasn’t “the cheapest way to build”, but It cost about $50 per square foot less than a more conventional custom home.

They didn’t aim to build an extreme home, but the couple feel confident their home will hold up well under extreme conditions- i.e. falling trees, forest fires. Connie jokes that if a tree does fall on the home, “it will get a little dent and we’ll call the auto body shop to fix the house”.
