Types of Construction Methods
There are many types of materials and processes that energy efficient construction can be built with depending on location and availability of materials. Materials and methods for constructing each structure or add-on can vary depending on location, orientation of building, building use, existing structure (if any), desired building performance, climate conditions, code restrictions, proximity to other structures and in place or planned landscaping. Types of structures include insulated concrete forms, structurally insulated panels, earth ships (various construction methods), direct and indirect solar homes, thermal mass and advanced framing techniques as well as natural homes made from other materials including cob, straw bales, rammed earth, poured earth, earthbags, papercrete, cordwood and even old tires, bottles and cans. Construction methods, costs and required contractor skill levels vary for each type of material. These natural homes can be built for around 30 cents on the dollar for do it yourselfers who donít mind building their own homes, but selling or financing this type of structure can be much more difficult.
