Re: GSBN:Plastic Bottle walls possible for Australia



Hola  Rikki,

I too would love to access the bottle information. Is there a place that it can be posted in order to simplify sending many places.
Thanks for the many resources you have been sharing with the list.

Best,

kim

I have seen a technique (used in Central America) about building with
Filled (not baled) 2liter coca-cola bottles mortared together with
clay...I can send on a short video and drawings of the technique if
someone wants...just tell me where to send it.

Hi to all,

I am unsure of the outcome of leather in bales, but it did prompt a
question on my part. I have been contacted by an Aboriginal elder
wanting to build homes for his people in Broome Australia. The
humidity is high. Too high for
Straw bale. I would be interested to hear if anyone has baled plastic
bottles for building, as there is an abundance available. I would

think

that
a cement lime render would be best if it was feesable. Does anyone

have

any
suggestions? They have plenty of labour available. One of the kee
requirements is that they build themselves, as this will help with

social

issues with the you people, as they do something worthwhile that they

can

be
proud of.

I look forward to any suggestions.

Regards
Brian Hodge

Since failure in bale buildings often relates to the bales getting
wet, wouldn't it be ill-advised to build with bales of a material
that

"releases toxins

if it gets wet or burns"?   Although it might be OK for building a

warehouse

to store more leather bales.   As for insulative value, although an

unlined

leather jacket is effective as a windbreaker, is the leather itself

very

insulative?   Keep us informed, John.

Hello
Leather is certainly baled in a quiet different way than straw or
hay;

if

animal skin has to be used in building, as it was done (and still
is,

some



places) by Laps, Inuit, or Mongols , the material is efficent as

insulator

in vertical layers, like our good old leather jackets. but who
wants

BALED

leather? heavy, costly, akward, not very proper indeed.  Maybe the

baled

leather mentioned in Brazil is from waste cuts, pieces too narrow
or

with

holes and faults on the skin?  But even then, I just cant think of
it

as a

great building material.
Other opinions?

Hi.

I have friends down in the south of Brazil, in an area that was
settled

by

German shoemakers over a hundred years ago, and still is a center
for

shoe

manufacturing.  The leather is baled, and currently is warehoused.



It

is a

bit of a hazard, since it releases toxins if it gets wet or

burns.  They

were inquiring if it could be used for building projects?  What do
you

all

think?

John
