Hello Open Source Warriors,
I'm glad to announce Open Source Ecology's most ambitious Extreme Build to
date: Microhouse Prototype 3
See the video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94rQw1Ur2aQ. Behind me in
the video is our earlier version of a compressed brick house, with wood
It's a 5 day build of a fully code compliant, stabilized compressed earth
brick home made with our open source equipment using on-site soil - at 1/3
the cost of conventional housing. Check it out and pass on to your friends.
This will be the first time that we are cranking our brick machine at full
power - 10 bricks per minute at 54 hp using 2 Power Cubes
<https://vimeo.com/55341689> - about 10,000 bricks will be made. This will
be epic if the build is completed as planned.
Behind me in the video is our earlier version of a compressed brick house,
with wood siding, harboring Catarina Mota = wife - who is in the final
sprint of finishing her Ph.D. thesis.
If you'd like to attend, we're giving open source warriors a 20% discount
to the workshop. Email me. If you want to build your own micro-Power Cube
at $300 in materials - we have our next Power Cube workshop
<http://opensourceecology.org/power-cube-workshop/> this weekend.
