Interesting Construction Concepts

Recommended Posts

The principle looks interesting, and it might have application for anybody who is willing to live in spaces no more than ten feet wide...

They may be more flexible than that (on structure width), but that is the only structure width they mention. Building with prefabbed building section blocks is an interesting concept, but I have to wonder if they have actually run tests on the structures.

In any event, the concept is miles ahead of the typical CHB construction used here. There are, however other building methods that can give you the same strength with more flexibility on plans.

I've seen this before, and building formed concrete walls (of any kind) in the Philippines is easier said than done, but if you could get the forms and the foam concrete, this might be viable here.

Again, an interesting concept, but likely it would be difficult to find the materials in the Philippines...

I'm also not sure this concept (as shown) is typhoon proof (though it would probably fare pretty well in an earthquake).
