My #definition of #naturalbuilding is:

My #definition of #naturalbuilding is: "using the materials you have locally available in abundance that can be harvested without harm and using them in a way that ensures low energy use in your climate" This requires an understanding of the properties of various materials in nature around you. As well as an understanding of your climate extremes. Then you can make smart decisions about which materials will give you maximum energy performance for your climate...and ensure #energyefficiency #whatif #strawbale #claywalls #wallsofclay #naturalplaster #passivesolar #siteharvestedwood ...

You guys know how into low waste & sustainability I am so getting to tour & stay in these earthships was such a dream! Earthships are completely off grid and employ dozens of methods which make them incredibly efficient. While I don’t think I’ll build an earthship exactly, I can’t wait to employ a bunch of these ideas whenever I build my off grid homestead one day! 🔹passive solar heating & cooling with large south facing windows, vent system, thermal mass building (hopefully with the use of materials like hempcrete), and earth burm
🔹large south facing indoor greenhouse
🔹solar panels for electricity
🔹rainwater catch off the roof & collected in a cistern
🔹use of gray water in planters & toilet
🔹use of black water in outdoor beds

#passivesolardesign 
The strawbale gives you superb insulation.  The clay features modulate interior temperatures and humidity.  The #passivesolar design ensures you get free heat from the sun when you want it (and are shaded when you need to stay cool). And using wood from a #sustainable resource minimizes your #ecofootprint

Building a home does not have to cost hundreds of thousands of dollars! And on top of that, we should demand more from our homes... space for food production, passive solar heating, rainwater catchment and more 💧🌱 I have always been fascinated by the @earthship 🔥 Have you been in one?.

Winter harvest of chillies, thanks to the passive solar greenhouse on the north side of our cottage. Prettymuch in love with this little greenhouse space. It heats our home in winter, by capturing the sun and pumping it through the house via convection, and we get winter harvests like this - while there's frost on the ground outside. All with zero energy inputs. Hooray for permaculture design 🌶 ☀️!
.⠀⠀
Speaking of which, our July 'Intro to Permaculture' course is coming up in Sydney town. We're only running two more of these this year, so if you're keen to start designing, doing and forming new habits for permaculture living, please join us - it's an awesome weekend! The link is in our profile today.⠀⠀
.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
And I myself am thinking I'll make Tuong ot toi (chilli garlic sauce) with this little basket of goodness, for our future noodle soups and rice bowls. Yum. Although, got any favourite, must-make recipes for our small but beloved chilli harvest? All suggestions very welcome!⠀⠀

WHAT IS A SOLAR ROOM®

The Solar Room® when mounted on the south, southeast, or southwest sides of a home, is a solar collector in addition to being a greenhouse. 
It is a gold anodized extruded aluminum frame which bolts together erector set fashion. It is then bolted to a wood beam or cement foundation and the wall of the house..
