William Ellerbe: *Low-cost innovative building*
I must be honest when I say that I *love* to read about
innovative/non-traditional building methods. In our world we have folks who
can't afford the traditional $300K dollar homes. In kind it is encouraging
and refreshing to know that these kinds of solutions *do* exist. Can't wait
for the chance to get started with a project like this.
Watch "Low cost Construction Housing | Interlocking Blocks Building System
projects" on YouTube
*Edit:* 08/23/11 - Now we can actually *see* a video preview thanks to an
edit here on Google TV. :)

RobertSmith: Look like an ancient system used on stone hedges and roman pillars. It
Mike Nestle: But over and over, we see "systems" in YouTube for building all sorts of
things, stoves that cook for pennies,. watering systems, etc., and it's
NEVER AVAILABLE for Americans, it seems. Why is that? Is it possible we
still have people around who are blind to the utter poverty that exists in
America? Was your TV broken during coverage of Hurricane Katrina? Floods,
fires and tornadoes have lots of American victims. Why are these systems
not available to help the victims recover?
George Louis: There are people in America who don't have houses!!!! Those people are
lucky. They don't have mortgage to pay. I don't think I'll ever have my own
John nichole canto: a good idea!! but could somebody build a brick with waste plastic for
reinforcements or as inserts to blocks so we can make waste plastics put to
good use. It would make it lighter and earthfriendly
Nannanae P: it is not available here because the bankers don't make money, taxes and
off human labor and dirt unless there is debt involved. the houses are
mostly man made fluff and stuff of more debt and human labor and taxes
and interest.. it is called share cropping. :P.

Jackie dilao: NO sound!
tchip Pat: The machine seems to be inexpensive !!!!! amazing.
MOHAN PRAKASH Seervi: pls send me catalog n quotation at email@example.com Thanks
Mohammed Ali: But will it blend?
RadimaxRadimaX: Lego for adults?
Derek Drakes: Another simple one
siteexists.com: Quake friendly bricks
Levi Clayborne: No... he didn't invent this method. It's old... very old. Used by, well,
pretty much every culture to some extent. Were they always interlocking?
No, not typically, but some were. This is not something new to human
Plus, adding "cement" isn't gonna do much stabilizing because you're adding
in too dry. The only thing special about cement is the lime aka calcium
carbonate, which requires a decent about of moisture to do any good. But
since the bricks are compressed, they don't need any "stabilizers" such as
lime. Come to think of it, there isn't any other stabilizer known to man
that they would use other than lime.
There's a 175 foot mud brick tower that's been sitting in Yemen for other a
thousand years, the bricks are not made with any lime, nor is there any
steel rebar in the tower.
Sam Piseth: can you tell me about formula to create it? I'm come from School of
architecture at Pannasastra university, I want to know about it clearly and
wanna reasearch it..
kofi gyang: Ramiro, your adress is wrong and email cant go. Leave another email
ExclusiveLM: @ElGatoLoco698 you are right crazy cat
Casey V: hi i am living in the Philippines and want to create work how can i can a
machine like that in Davao my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
adrian hopper: in a word! brilliant!
DarwinThug: very cool! could you tell us how much cement it takes per volume of
compressed soil? in other words, how expensive is the cement to make the
Listening Point: legos
GIGNica: Even though these homes have metal rebars, are earthquake proof?
segunilori: Aina Omo iya re nse machine to dara ju eleyi lo ni Ibadan , lo si
hydroformer brick machine lori you tube abi low cost housing in nigeria
ChicharonyPresidente: Even with the re-bars, still looks very flimsy. thin walls, is cheap
housing to put a band aid on a problem, but not a permanent one. I would
not feel safe inside these homes. Tin roofs too? Load bearing? nahhhhhh.
I'll pass. Does the "inventor" lives inside one of these homes? I don't
Mentorworld Edet: Please send the complete contact address of this machine in Southern
Thailand to email@example.com We are highly interested in it for
us to improve our housing infrastructure. Thanks
Maria Magyari-Mate: Or in case of fire still stands,lol unlike a cheap wooden home that looks
like a cottage!!
Catherine S. Todd: Thanks & will do.
nextari: what? that device does not cost just $1500. How much is it and how do we
Starduster1000: 40-50 procent cheaper doesnt impress much but the ease of building does.
Ajay Iyer: @anilao87... to be sure.. you can't call it INSULATION, but since it is
made out of earth and some cement to stabilize it.. it might produce a
temperature difference of upto 5 degrees inside the building .. the
building would be around 5 degrees cooler on the inside... and for more
theramal insulation and resistance to freeze-thaw cycles you can finish it
with foamed concrete up to 1/4 to 3/4 inch thickness on either side..
isantimn mn: @MrShoeguy Did you see the rebar in the video?
pinkHIPPOgreenHIPPO: The roofs on this are concrete, pressed like clay roof tiles. They are
attractive and affordable.
abnertgu: Many folks here seem to not have grasped the concept and purpose of this
building technology: 1) These houses are mostly and primarily intended to
people who do NOT have the money either to build or to buy a "regular"
home. 2) The houses built using this technology are stronger, and far
better looking than their former houses, or any other house poorly built
with pieces of cardboard, rotten wood or old metal sheets.
Luc Cantin: Yes haiti is a good example
redsam888: what sort of pressure can these bricks take? there is alot to be said for
concrete and steel bar. It has to potentail (i know thats spelt wrong, i'm
a builder, not a .......good speller?) to be a good idea.
William Ellerbe: I love to hear about innovative building techniques that offer healthier
and more cost-effective building methods for home owners.
khoune3kv: What's the name of the machine at 4/20 and where could you buy them?
Lansing Allison: there was a cry out in Africa dealing with the aftermath of the flooding ...
telorinodelhoyoo: Why houses in america burns
Cheryl Read: @HeadShot360IN Can you get your point across without using such vulgar
Giuelith: Giuen Outright Webstore - Google Groups
mozartgenetics: I have seen this press in a couple of videos. Can anyone tell me where to
get it? Thank you.
liu aaron: dear sir, we need a distributor for block machine, are you interested, we
are from China.you can email me by firstname.lastname@example.org, thanks
SignedSign: building a brickhouse is about the most time consuming way to do it, why
not instead buy a cheap good ole sawmill.. make your own boards in half the
time and build wooden houses in notime compared to make them by brickwork.
of course then that company dont get to sell their brick presses lol
Aina Olalekan: I am a Nigerian, a Town Planner I am interested in the machine and how to
acquire the skills, also want to know if you have contact in Nigeria.
