Ive kept my eye on the oehler materials for some years now and have been very impressed with the creativity of these methods. any suggestions for related out of the box books/ideas on building?
In australia over here land and loans are very expensive, and im fascinated with the idea of building low profile survival/eco retreats in the massively vast tracts of state forest. I feel that many of the problems we face today in oru world is because of the corrupted banking system and how it ties people in to paying huge mortgages for small pieces of land which our ancestors enjoyed free of charge. Here in australia its out of control, with the governments releasing little drips and drabs of land to keep the prices up high. ( Average house price here atm is $465,000! ) http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/-/wa/9279819/home-prices-plummet/
So far im thinking camouflaged teepees, underground oehler style houses, or even burying shipping containers which is prob my least preferred method
Any experience/suggestions on this? Its me and my friend at most building so efficiency would be key
