construction trades has always been a "man's" job..(as most of the poeple would think). But reading about these women who dont beleibe that at all reminded me that it doesnt matter who you are if you really like something, you just go for it.

Low Impact House by Schlyter / Gezelius Arkitektkontor

Low Impact House by Schlyter / Gezelius Arkitektkontor | carpentry | Scoop.it

This design responds to the waste of space in today´s interiors and exteriors, the lack of respect for the natural landscape, the global use of non-renewable materials, and how all of this in various ways is linked to our digital tools.

The house is built by a local contractor and a local carpentry shop has milled all the building parts. Every part of the building was designed specifically for this project to awoid waste material, using different kinds of wood from sustainably forested woodland...


Via Lauren Moss
victor vasquez's insight:

building things from renewable materials, in my opinion is a great idea. Not only will buildings and houses be constructed, but less wood will be needed to be cut down and i think that would not just help the planet and all of us on it.

We’ve put together a glossary of commonly used Carpentry & Joinery terms. Some of the terms have a couple of different meanings and some you will be familiar with and some maybe not so. Due to the sheer amount of Carpentry and Joinery terms, we will spread it over a couple of posts so we can include as many as possible."

victor vasquez's insight:

carpenry also has a scientific side to it. i thought usually you would jus worry about measuremens. But there is a whole science to he way the wood is treated, dried, etc...  there are quite a few chemicals and steps in the proces of getting the wood ready.

Buildings like these are a great idea, the system to collect and filter water is a good thing to have because not only is it providing clean water but its re using it, and the solar array it has to generate almost all the power it needs really makes this building a "green" building.
