Alternative building materials

Recommended Posts




I used insulated roof panels on our house. There is a story on it here.


We used 100mm insulated panels, (cool room panels), on the roof of a house boat ... 45" x 20" ...the span was 20' an more than strong enough to support the weight of several people walking around on it ... the walls of the house boat were also the same panels and stood up to the weather well including going through several tropical storms.  I haven't investigated it too much here yet so don't know the specifications but I know a 4 x 8 foot panel here is under 1500 pesos, not sure of the thickness etc.. but it might prove to be a viable and cost effective building material...
