Using Natural Building Techniques that are Cost-Competitive

The presentation will take a look at how to make positive, effective environmental impacts with-in the building and contracting industry.  The lessons of 25 years of striving to create energy-efficient, natural yet affordable homes will be distilled down in this one-hour presentation.  Bringing aspects of natural building into the mainstream is often best done slowly and with budget-friendly decisions. Sometimes, when working with an indifferent or resistant client or individual, the greenest answer is not the right answer.  Parity in function, durability, and cost is often your best ally in changing the status quo. We will take a macro and micro look at some building ideas and techniques that are both natural and cost-effective.
