    Assembly video of our wood 180 square foot shelter/cabin. Used for disaster relief housing or as a moveable recreational cabin. Many other possible uses too. Expandable in size for future growth and needs. This is the bare shell, can be outfitted with bathroom, electric, solar lights or whatever the need dictates. The actual full assembly time compressed into this video was 2 hours and 10 minutes

    This is a video outlining some of the basic detail and construction process of our 12' yurt. The structure is all steel, with insulated walls and roof, cedar exterior and includes one door and window. The entire yurt can be assembled by 2-3 people in 4-5 hours. There are two floor pans, two wall sections and 16 rafters that make the basic structure. All the kits we have will be complete kits from the floor to the roof. Our basic kits contain everything you need to have a nice basic structure as opposed to other kits where many of our standard features are "extras or optional". We pride ourselves in building a quality product at a very competitive price. Thank you for checking out our video we hope you enjoy it. Our website will be coming soon so keep checking back for more info and pricing. www.mountainwindyurts.com

    Camping for the 21st century has arrived, and it comes in the shape of the Pod. Designed and built in Great Britain this exciting new innovation in camping technology is proving a huge success with both campers and site owners alike.

    Built in solid treated timber, insulated with sheep's wool and featuring a roof guaranteed for 30 years, the Pod is able to open up new revenue streams like no other form of accommodation. Seasons are extended, wash-out weekends eliminated and under-utilised parts of sites brought back to life with the addition of these stunning wooden structures.

    The Jump shelter is located in the Italian Alps at the Lake Goillet bank. It is situated partially in the water which allows visitors to experience its calming effect. The shape has evolved from a need to admire the natural beauty of this region. Soft lines emphasize its unity with the surrounding mountains. Its concrete structure helps to protect it against weather conditions and water level rise.

    Greenhouse construction with a rocket mas heater, including an excellent demonstration of the rocket mass heater sideways burn. The greenhouse construction class is taught by Ernie and Erica Wisner, featuring the rocket mass heater techniques of Ianto Evans (of cob cottage company fame). I cannot think of a better approach to greenhouse heating.

    This is the first phase of building this greenhouse. The focus is on the steps of building the rocket mass heater.

    This video has an excellent demonstration of the sideways burn - or fire burning sideways.

    Since this will be an oehler style solar greenhouse, then it probably won't need much heat. But it will be a bonus. And the heated air could also be piped into the house.

    A rockey mass heater is typically 10 times more efficient than a regular wood stove. And 20 times cleaner.

    A mike oehler style greenhouse construction is probably the most efficient greenhouse known.

    This part of the tour is hosted by Ianto Evans and features three much larger cob buildings. Including one that is designed to show off a cob home designed for suburbia.


    Brian Kerkvliet from Inspiration Farm tells us about his little compost pile that provided 500 hot showers. Compost heat can, indeed, be captured to heat water. After the hot showers, you have a lovely pile of compost! The moisture from the shower feeds mushrooms! Hot water, compost and mushrooms. Permaculture! http://www.permies.com

    The average life of a Refugee camp is 7 years, with some exceeding beyond 50 years. There is a need for an alternative shelter to the typical tent solution that can transform a temporary living condition into a permanent home. Pallet House by I-Beam Design, was conceived as a transitional shelter for returning Refugees.

    Thanks. It opened the floodgates...he has all sorts of plans already in his head.

    I enjoyed the video. He enjoyed pointing out how some things could be done more cheaply and/or just plain better.

    We both prefer the idea of being anchored to the ground.

    While decks can be isolating, I would like to do something like Lumenhaus, but low-tech: the ability to expand the living area in good weather by opening sliding panels.

    Habitats Hawaii ~ incredible self contained sustainable homes on wheels!
    The mission of Habitats Hawai'i is to assist people to expand their vision of what could be...by simplifying and living in a blended environment of indoor/outdoors. The habitats on wheels are simply a seed ready to plant wherever you choose. Their mobility offers you greater freedom and flexibility, ready to be placed wherever one has access to a small piece of earth...the carbon footprint is negligible while possibilities are immense. habitats are a self contained living space which offer all of the basic necessities which one can then expand exponentially by way of arbors, plants, stone and water. you can plan the rest of the vision in harmony with natural surroundings. Each is wired for 110 volts and are solar ready. Each have metal roofs with gutters to capture the rain water. All of this to support us all to live lightly on the earth.
