SHE Build is offering Summer Learning Destination Workshops

 

Introduction to Passive Solar Greenhouse and the Sustainable Home Environment:Design & Build Tour: Topics covered during the Intro include:Spring planting, Sanitary Systems/Digester/Organic Fertilizer, WEB(Whole Earth Building)Blocks,Winter food production.

Attached or unattached, the Greenhouse/Garden is intimately connected to the home and it's waste stream through the utilization of the byproducts produced through the " fracking of the kitchen sink." A process where the waste water is recycled into a nutrient stream, methane gas and water. Utilized as a buffer zone for the climate control of the house along as an additional green space for the home/nature interface. The greenhouse is most importantly a year round producer of food and clean air for the inhabitants of the home.

The Tiny Healthy House: Here we will explore the popular new trend of " Living Small." Often measuring less than 300 square feet the tiny house movement isn't necessarily about sacrifice as a small house can actually lead to a simpler yet fuller life, connected with family, friends and nature while living free from mortgages, wastefulness and that large footprint. Built with a minimal amount of materials, the 1:4:9 modular walls, floors and foundation are fully integrated into an efficient structure that is easy and quick to build. Incorporating conventional and non-conventional waste materials such as recycled organic fibre, adobe earth cores, steel, plastics and polystyrene. With these structures we will pursue various natural finishes for the interior and exterior walls of the building using local clay and natural pigments all providing for a breathable, thermal mass finish. Aptly suited for a small office, an art or writing studio, a children's playhouse, a guesthouse, garden house or small dwelling, these cost effective  Tiny Homes definitely say " Less is More!"      Contact we@shebuild.ca
