Introduction

Retired handyman. Have already taken some classes on aquaponics, wind power, solar power, solar updraft cooling, rammed earth building, etc.

Are you ready to think outside the box?

Always have.

WAY outside the box?

You would not believe how far outside the box I can get.

Why do you think green building is important?

We need to be able to survive if the infrastructure is attacked and shut down. It should also be cheaper to live off-grid.

Do you have any construction experience?

Does building my add-on pier-and-beam bedroom from the ground up count?

What is your opinion on "green building" as it is commonly portrayed in the media?

Hype.

What Jerry Sledge is saying about this Meetup Group

The concept that I experienced was that, this idea is a do-able, viable method of construction that should be explored more fully by people "in the business" of home building to help gain approval in incorporated, urban deveolpments. City planners and code enforcement needs to step in to the 21st century and step away from the old "we've never done it that way before".
