Re @markdotgooley Probably not, but I don't think wood chips in slip would be very helpful. For North Florida rammed earth with a 1-3% lime addition would be more suitable. I think that approximates what the natives would have used before contact. twitter.com/wrathofgnon/status

Tall ceilings, natural ventilation in the majority of rooms and corridors, natural light as far as possible, views of greenery and live plants and trees, access to gardens and courtyards from all rooms, natural materials such as wood, clay, lime plaster, brass and copper details.

Re @JamesPsychol You are of the opinion that religious orders should forbid social media use? That is a valid opinion of course. twitter.com/wrathofgnon/status

Re @Paracelsus1092 @moveincircles @unherd I always thought pod life (as opposed to pond life I guess) was always a strange negation of the self in an era where the self is the only holy and reigns supreme. Maybe it is like the IKEA shelves, so hostile to life (full of formaldehyde as they are), they are best left bare. twitter.com/wrathofgnon/status

I still haven't quite gotten over that an actual Cistercian monk follows me on this (free) app. Once I figure out how to respond to that honor though... It is a bit like a dream.

Re @AurelianofRome Bricks are good because you can move them around after they are done. In cities especially where you can't just open up a clay pit next to your house. The downside is the price, and the added cost of the necessary mortar. twitter.com/wrathofgnon/status

Re @Lir_One @yes_url There are plenty of places in the world where dirt roads are good enough, especially if you have to fund and maintain them yourself. When I say dirt I include all materials other than asphalt, concrete, stone or brick etc.

Re @AurelianofRome You can build wooden clad rammed earth or cob houses fairly easily. Much older timber frame uses tons of cob between the timbers. Or you can build above first floor in wood and stick to cob on the ground floor, or you can do half the house in cob, or one wall in cob, etc. twitter.com/wrathofgnon/status

Re @FrogMortonAgain @Darkwolfsbane13 Making bricks is hard work and only useful if you are building far from your clays source. Rammed earth is best if you have good soil on your location. twitter.com/wrathofgnon/status

Re @FrogMortonAgain Cob is fine anywhere (just need a good hat and boots), but for the south I would go with rammed earth. twitter.com/wrathofgnon/status
