Insulated block for building homes

Post by dean on Tue Apr 23, 2013 10:08 pm

We now have insulated block being made in LaPaz... R26 is the insulating factor.

price adds roughly $4,000 per 1000 square feet of home. Plus they take all the packaging foam for TVs and so on to make it.

This house in the desert keeps itself cool and generates its own power


A house built in the demanding environment of Alice Springs, Australia, has been honored by the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA). Dunn and Hillam's Desert House was designed to withstand the extreme desert conditions while remaining energy efficient. The AIA cited the project's "genuine sensibility to environmental management in this specific climate."

Dunn and Hillam was asked by its clients to design a house that would allow them to make the most of living in Alice Springs, taking into account its climate and spectacular scenery. The clients requested that the house engage with the surrounding landscape, that it provide multiple places to be use depending on the time of day and weather, and that it minimize energy usage.


with insulated block you could really make a energy efficient home here in baja...
