Here in Los Angeles housing is expensive but there's an alternative which could save about thirty percent on construction cost shipping container homes CBS News Tuesday market shows us more as the cost of living rises the way we live is changing people are living in modular homes prefab homes and even shipping container homes. containers get all the headlines countless shipping containers come into the ports of LA and Long Beach and many of them stay but some are being repurposed into everything from retail spaces to homes when Paula approached me about a shipping container home I thought this is insane.
And then I met Peter and I still thought it was insane. Matt and Paula dowd are using shipping containers to build two shipping container homes in Redondo Beach one for them and one for Grandma. I can age in place and my grandchildren will grow up here and I'll be with my daughter and my son inlaw. they're building with architect Peter DeMaria but it's an idea that still stirs controversy. In this area you mostly find Mediterranean or craftsman style homes and you bring something like this to the city and.
They're like, yeah I don't know it took several trips to the City Council to get their property approved with multiple modifications to the design and Matt had the same concerns as the city. my opinion was oh my gosh it's going to be boxy and corrugated but many homes built from shipping containers look like this and this all of these homes were designed by the architect very few people be able to tell wow that's a shipping container home. containers are the thing that really breaks down the door and people say.
Maybe I can do the little bit differently and I'm not going to sacrifice quality and I'm not going to sacrifice on the size of the house and all of it translates into doing it less expensively. most containers can be covered with any surface like wood stucco or vinyl siding and it's affordable while maintaining quality in general they're around 30 percent less than traditional construction a great value but the quality of construction is a heavy gauge steel that that blows away wood frame house a comforting thought in quakeprone.
Southern California and by upcycling metal containers it's one of the greenest options available so the containers become a means to an end we're changing the way we think about building and we're saving the planet. we're taking material and upcycling it as opposed to cutting down five or six acres of forest every time we put up a new wood frame house. DeMaria says there's a revolution to change how we live and the Dowd's are early adopters and I think this is how a great progress is made really this.
RAMMED EARTH BUILDING WITH ROWLAND KEEBLE
I was invited by somebody to go and build a house in Freetown, in Sierra Leone, and I was 2021, never built a house from beginning to end, never built an earth house, but just that leveling testosterone that tells you that you can do whatever you want. In a capital city with very little running water, very little electricity, very little petrol and managed to build a house. That's really where it start and I just haven't been able to let it go.It's ramming, rather than stroking, patting. We were consultants on the Wise Project.
At Cat, which is a 7 meter high, 15meter cylindrical building, it's loadbearing. It's in Wales, which is quite difficult place to work in, given that it never stops raining. We've just finished another four classroom blocks here in East Sussex and that was based on one that we finished in 2008 and we've also worked on one in Lincoln on fairly much same model. Children will go into those classrooms and learn in those classrooms and see that you can have an earth wall, without anything else in it, with no.
Cement in it and that it works and when they go off to study engineers or study architect or study surveys, they'll just have it inherently in them. For me if I had one building type that I was going to do now for the rest of my life, it would be schools. We're in a situation now, where 10 percent of our co2 emissions globally, comes from the production of cement and we're producing single double 3 and fourstory buildings using a vast amount of cement, and in this country we have to kinda get off the.

British Gas Sustainable Energy Space
I love the stand, I love the natural wood and the fact that you can see all the bits where you're saving power like the cup of tea and stuff like that and all the power saving things. It's good they've got the colouring for the children so at least the adults can have a chat and the children can be out the way. So it's quite good that. I didn't know too much about what British Gas were offering, but I've realised they're offering a lot to the public to kind of save energy.
Experience a 220 sq ft tiny home OffBeat Spaces tutorial
Good morning. Welcome to our tiny house. Our tiny barn on our tiny farm here in New England was built last year by a group of students from Yestermorrow Design Build School up in Warren, Vermont. We love it. MUSIC PLAYING The students that designed it and built it, they didn't go crazy trying to pack a million little things in. It's open, it's airy. So when you're living in a very small house, you don't feel constricted. So this is the kitchen and the dining room and the living room.
One of the things that the students were trying to achieve was, even though this is a somewhat small house 227 square feet it still feels pretty big. I've been in here with 15 or 20 people, and believe it or not, it's not that crowded. You can see the light fixtures are pretty interesting salvaged plumbing parts. I don't think that water comes out of those. I hope not. It's got a full oven setup, salvaged steel backsplash. There's a nice set of drawers. There's cabinets above. Routed directly into the shelves above the sink are.
Drainage holes, so we can put our clean dishes here, and they drain right into the sink a nice way to save space. Here's the bathroom. We've got a little sink, shower. The floor and bench where the toilet are are all made of rotresistant wood, and there's a floor drain. So the whole room is actually the shower. The bedroom I think it's just a classic small house bedroom. The bed is up a little bit higher, so you've got plenty of storage underneath drawers and a big hatch in the back.
But it's not up so high that you have to climb up to get it. Again, this is one of those choices that they made that I think is so wonderful. It's a generous space. There's plenty of headroom, and you feel comfortable in there. So this is an old Japanese technique for finishing the exterior of the building. They took cedar boards and, using a blow torch, they charred them until they were black. And then, they scraped off the residue. And then, they put a light coat of a natural oil on that.
It gives it an amazing, rich brown color. And also, that charring seals the wood in, and it makes it essentially weatherproof. We've been really curious about creative ways to heat small spaces. Inside these hay bales is wood chips and sawdust and a little bit of manure. We've got a pipe going in. It loops around and around and around. There's about 600 feet of pipe in there. And then, it comes back out again. We haven't hooked up the pump yet, but we hooked it up temporarily the other day, and the water that.
Came out burned me. It's 150degree water coming out of this thing. So we think a pile like this could easily heat a tiny house. We were looking to make an investment in energy. What we've bought, in a lot of ways, is people power. And that means having family and friends come, people come to help out on the farm and visit. For us, it's this energy of being able to host people, to have people come and participate in our little experiment here. Love home and design Make sure to subscribe to SpacesTV on YouTube.
How To Insulate Your Home For Extreme Weather DIY At Bunnings
I'm going to show you how to insulate your home for extreme conditions. There's also places around the world, like New Zealand, where they're notoriously underinsulated. I'm going to show you how to pick the right insulation for your house. Insulating your home can be an easy DIY job, but there's some key tools and gear that you'll need. You'll need some insulation, some drop sheets, some safety gear like goggles, dust masks, and gloves. You'll need to use a knife, and you may need to use some stripping and a stapler.
Many homes in New Zealand aren't insulated to match the climate conditions. In 1978 rules were passed to make sure that all new homes were insulated, but still twothirds of New Zealand homes are either underinsulated, or not insulated at all. When choosing the insulation to use, there's many things to consider. Some are more environmentally friendly, like polyesters or wools. And there are some still made from fiberglasses. Other factors with this that you need to consider, is if you do have anyone with allergies or asthma, it's particularly important to look at a polyester or wool blend.
This home is a really sustainable and environmentally friendly home, and I'm using a woolen insulation type. They've actually put a little window here that we can have a look and see. As you can see, they have a really big, thick, woolenstype insulation in here. But they've also put a membrane around the whole house that's breathable, just to enhance the insulation of the home. By doing this they've created a thermal envelope which completely wraps the whole house and means no warmth can escape. The way insulation works is it's not that it warms the house, or cools it down, but.
Simply it works as a barrier to the outside. So if your house is warm, it will keep the warm in. And if it's cold outside, it will keep the cold outside. To the inverse of that, on a really hot summer's day, it'll be a barrier between that, so your house will remain cool. Installing insulation is a relatively easy DIY job, but you do need to consider there are some strict criteria around it, so you may need to consult with a professional, or talk to your local council. The aim when installing insulation is to make sure there's no gaps.
And you have it snug in all areas. To do this you need to use a craft knife to cut right around the edges to make sure it fits just right. In some areas, like your roof space, or walls that you do have it on a lean, or even subfloors, you'll need to use things like a strip and a stapler to make sure that it won't sag over time. One of the most important things to consider when choosing insulation is the Rvalue you want to buy. The Rvalue is a measure of how efficient the insulation is, and how much.
It will stop air movement between two varied areas. The higher the R number, the more efficient it is. But do check with your local council, as each area does have minimum requirements in the building codes. Another important thing to consider when buying insulation is the sizing on the packets. This should normally show the width, height, and thickness of the insulation. Pay real close attention to the thickness, as if it's too thick for the area you have, it will compromise the insulation, and you'll effectively be paying for insulation that you're not getting.
Insulation isn't the only thing you need to consider. Almost 10 of heat is lost through drafts. Things like good draft excluders, like this one, are key to making sure you maintain that thermal envelope around your house. Another factor to consider when creating a thermal envelope of your home is around your windows. You want to make sure, where possible, you can have double glazing to prevent heat loss, and make sure you use something like a really thick curtain or blind to prevent any further heat loss. If you live in extreme weather conditions, want to make your house warmer, or want to.
