Mother Earth News Blog

Dr. Owen Geiger did an article on the recycled plastic blocks in Mother Earth News.  http://www.motherearthnews.com/hands-on-and-how-to/recycled-plastic-block-houses.aspx  He put the same article up on his Earthbag blog  http://earthbagbuilding.wordpress.com/

If the name Dr. Owen Geiger sounds familiar it’s because it should be.   His passion and expertise is sustainable housing.  http://www.motherearthnews.com/Green-Homes-Expert-Owen-Geiger.aspx  http://www.grisb.org/

We received some drawings today

These drawings are courtesy of Dr. Owen Geiger at www.GRISB.org

These are drawings for making the block box press. 


We have photos and a material list in another post.

Dr. Geiger has been involved from early on.  Everytime I would vary away from the original concept he would be on to me to get back on track.  He shares the vision of a manual system that can be used by the semi-skilled under the worst of conditions to create shelter and industry.  Dr. Geiger is now in Thailand working with locals who make CEB’s (compressed earth blocks).  http://www.motherearthnews.com/Green-Homes-Expert-Owen-Geiger.aspx
