Green Building Techniques - Alternative Wall Systems


Gain insight into more durable and sustainable construction buildings.

Learn about better insulation methods and fire-resistant straw bale homes: Many structures across the country fail to provide proper insulation, which robs the residents' bank accounts and creates a waste of energy. With the recycled condensed concrete foam framed by the natural plasters that Drew utilizes in some projects, the residents have a comfort level in any climate that also benefits the surrounding environment by creating less waste. Additionally, straw bale homes have proven to be some of the only structures that survived in certain areas in Northern California during the fires in 2017 due to their super-insulated and thick plastered walls.
