straw bale construction material

Post by jamesalbert on Tue Nov 01, 2011 12:52 pm

Good day to all of you I just want to ask about this material? I had my thesis with a concept of "Organic Architecture" (its a resort) and I think that using straw bales (dayami) confused as a wall material will reduce construction cost ( by using available materials in the environment, my site is a cereal field... a farm) and lessen the use of energy, pollution and green house effects
(details of construction are shown below):



My doubts are: confused
1. Does the material has a strength to carry loads (my structure is just a one storey building with a roof garden)?
2. My site is in Bicol and we all knew that it is a typhoon prone region, does this material can stand in that weather condition?
3. How long these material can last?

Is there anyone who had a background in these kind of construction, please help me

I already ask mr. google about these but unfortunately there are no tropics related example existing in the www
Some explanation about this material is in these website :

1. Parang hollow blocks lang din to. You'll need coloumns.
2. Yup, covered naman ng lime render(palitada)
3. 10-20 years yata yan. Parang nipa, pero mas matagal kasi protected ng lime.

Very good insulating material ito. Good for cold climate. Medyo hindi practical dito sa tropics. Fire hazard din to, pag hindi maganda pagkaprotect. Thick.

Good construction substitute, provided abundant ito sa area.

If you're going for a roof garden or grass roof. I suggest you combine this with underground style of living. Para mga mound yung tirahan, tapos combined sa ganito. Mas organic yun at eco friendly.

Hindi naman mainit yan. hindi nga lang din malamit. retardant na yung lime. problem mo lang dyan pag inabot na ang dayami.

hello.. pa-comment, regarding sa load bearing, kelangan mo siguro ng alternative na magca-carry ng load maliban dun sa wall mo. kasi mabigat ang mga roof garden o green roof, plus meron pang mga dagdag na elements katulad ng tubig, bicol pa naman site mo, maulan dun. taga bicol din ako Smile, maganda yung saggestion ni sir bokkins na gawin mong parang mound, mas matibay yun kasi parang dome. yun nga lang di mo na ma-aapply yung dayami wall mo.

hi bro, pacomment..maganda itong naisaipan mo na iincorporate itong material na ito sa design mo dahil it resonates green design..pero ang nature ng dayami as far as i know or unless otherwise treated ay kung naexposed sa weather is nag shri-shrink sya hanggang mabulok na at nagiging fertilizer ,during that process nagkakaroon din ng amag,so maganda cguro ito kung meron chemical na iapply para maipreserve ang quality nya for long term or lifetime use

life span nga problema ko sir eh pero sabi naman ni sir bokkins maglast naman siya due to lime render pero tingin ko pwede kaya itreat muna siya bago ikabit as a wall parang tulad sa mga timber na tinitreat muna? Kaso hindi kaya mas lalong mapamahal pa? Dami pa dapat i-consider kaya wait ko pa matanong ko sa aking adviser. thanks sir sa mga ideas niyo i really appreciate it. inuman na

brad, ang alam ko, pinoprocess talaga to, hinahalo sya sa semento, parang CHB, yun nga lang ang main component mo eh yung dayami.. mas magaan sya kesa sa CHB pero comparable yung strength nya. Research lang brad, ang alam ko sa QC merong nagfafabricate ng construction materials from trash. di ko lang alam kung saan eksaktong address

Yup merong ganyang technology pero iba pa talaga ang straw bale mismo. Gamit ito sa Europe at malalamig na bansa. Good for insulation.
