    “why not instead buy a cheap good ole sawmill”

    Um DUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH because trees are a whole lot less available than clay and sand under their feet.

    “company dont get to sell their brick presses”

    You are truly fucking satanic. This method allows poor people to make bricks from clay and sand and a small amount of concrete without having to bake the bricks like modern methods use. Therefore people who lived in scrap board shanties can have a better place to live.

    Why houses in america burns

  11. ZeroJeremy1Dec 8, 2012 at 6:50 am

    but this isnt brick, it’s pressured sand/dirt. i never even mentioned wood.

  12. mariamm109Dec 8, 2012 at 7:19 am

    Brick does not burn down,but wood does very quickly!

  13. ZeroJeremy1Dec 8, 2012 at 7:25 am

    yea but im sure it’ll rain a few thousand times before the house catches on fire XP

  14. nextariDec 8, 2012 at 7:56 am

    what? that device does not cost just $1500. How much is it and how do we order one?

  15. mariamm109Dec 8, 2012 at 8:31 am

    Or in case of fire still stands,lol unlike a cheap wooden home that looks like a cottage!!

  16. SignedSignDec 8, 2012 at 9:24 am

    building a brickhouse is about the most time consuming way to do it, why not instead buy a cheap good ole sawmill.. make your own boards in half the time and build wooden houses in notime compared to make them by brickwork.
    of course then that company dont get to sell their brick presses lol

    there was a cry out in Africa dealing with the aftermath of the flooding …

    Many folks here seem to not have grasped the concept and purpose of this building technology: 1) These houses are mostly and primarily intended to people who do NOT have the money either to build or to buy a “regular” home. 2) The houses built using this technology are stronger, and far better looking than their former houses, or any other house poorly built with pieces of cardboard, rotten wood or old metal sheets.

    It is a standard building code just about everywhere in the US to have rebar in the concrete foundation.

    It’s has also become standard building code just about everywhere in the US to have Simpson steel straps holding the wood framed walls to the foundation, and Simpson steel straps holding the roof trusses to the walls.

    I agree about the cinder blocks. Not a good method of construction, especially in a seismic event.

  21. SunnyMoon2010Dec 8, 2012 at 12:19 pm

    I don’t see the difference between cinder block building and the one in the video. They both fill the blocks with concrete.

  22. SunnyMoon2010Dec 8, 2012 at 12:46 pm

    I am not seeing a lot of differences from the cinder blocks we buy in home depot or lowes. ok, my be the blocks has a little interlocking. But it won’t be that much cost differences in material because they are still pouring concrete in between and they are adding rebar.

    Nice, we need this here in the US it would cut down so much of the building cost, I think it would be cutting it close to building strength standards and this method has been around for thousands of years.

  24. ZeroJeremy1Dec 8, 2012 at 2:24 pm

    yea but then it rains and ur house melts!

  25. udg2100Dec 8, 2012 at 2:55 pm
