My long-time friend and fellow earthbag enthusiast, Chris Steen, has decided to sell the house in Crestone, Colorado that he has built over the last decade. It is a wonderful example of hybrid technology and evolving transformation over that time.
Chris writes, “Much was salvaged (a ridiculous quantity of Styrofoam and brick/block), reused or was just laying unused for decades. And the roofs on the additions are ferrocement. I tore out the rocket stove and replaced with airtight wood stoves so that the house could be bank mortgaged. The mud was high performance modified. No thermal bridging beyond glass. All the timber was dead standing beetle kill that I harvested.”
