Bamboo-framed Eco-Cabana dwelling

Posted by John Schinnerer almost 8 years ago

Long-time builder and bamboo booster Danny Li has built a bamboo-framed, fabric-walled modular dwelling prototype that also incorporates alternative energy and waste-as-resource technologies

I was lucky enough to be able to collaborate with Danny on this demonstration project, which showcases his "LSB" (Lighter Simpler Building) methods as well as a variety of alternative and appropriate technology elements. There is a simple web site with a write-up, some pictures and some videos here:

A full-length 22-minute DVD on the project is available from Danny (his contact info is on the above site at the end of the sidebar).

The most exciting part for me - see my previous posts on this - was the inclusion of a "watson wick" type of blackwater/graywater processing element, turning so-called "waste water" into a resource for growing food and biomass.
