Re: [hreg] Let's Build a Solar House
- The problem with papercrete is that it has not got the track record to get a
building permit. As of now, only one papercrete house is in the process of
being built by permit. Here in Texas we have a code for adobe and fibrous
adobe will be passed under the same code. This is important to me because
of insurance on the building. By the way, we have a couple of small
papercrete buildings right here in Bedias, no need to go to AZ or NM.
