La collezione di foto e video delle case fatte in bioedilizia.
Traditionally the thatched roof is topped with a bed of clay where iris are planted. The roots, or rather rhizomes, of the iris help to mesh together the reed ends in the thatch and remove excess moisture from the ridge. Normandy chaumiere often have a flint foundation with half-timbered walls with torchis (French cob) on laths (wattle) as the infill.
Modern cob house
The house is in Hellam Township, Pennsylvania, USA built from clay, straw, bamboo, cork, stone and roundwood with a green roof of desert sedums that can be reached from the first floor.
This is Benji who lives in Campagne, Aquitaine, France at La Sorga ecoVillage. His home is a wonderful example of Pattern Language No.208, ‘Gradual Stiffening’. Benji used two layers of old pullovers [cardigans, jumpers] soaked in a milky solution of lime over a lattice of woven branches. The outside layer is a mixture of lime, clay and sand. The final coat is lime, black soap and linseed oil. The inside of the tiny home is plastered with earth, straw and horse manure. The manure does not smell and helps prevent the earthen plaster from cracking.
