The Brattleboro Area Natural-building Group (BANG) will be meeting this Sunday, Dec.10th at 4pm in room 2 East of the Marlboro Tech Center (next to the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center, which is across the street from the co-op). Mark and I will be bringing some videos that the group can choose from to watch and discuss:
  • Building With Awareness: the Construction of a Hybrid Home
  • Blue Vinyl
  • Ancient Futures: Learning from Ladakh
  • Radically Simple (Jim Merkel)
  • Building Codes for a Small Planet (David Eisenberg)
  • Hands on Straw Bale
  • Basic Cordwood Masonry Techniques
  • an old documentary on Yemen, not readily available, showing their construction techniques for the earthen skyscrapers they've been living in for many centuries - a friend made a copy for us after acquiring it in some obscure way

  • + various things recorded off TV, including:
  • an earth-sheltered rammed-earth house, cob (during construction), Wing's Castle (which Mark and I have visited)
  • Subterranean Homes
  • Extreme Homes Down Under
  • etc...
Sorry about the short notice.

Looking forward to seeing you there,
