The more things change, the more they stay the same.Thomas Edison got a patent and built some concrete houses in NJ at the turn of the last century.
The "History Detectives" did a show segment about the houses. maggiedutton wrote:
At an affordable housing conference last week I learned of a most amazing company that has developed a concrete mold method of constructing homes that are attractive, affordable and highly durable. Homes can be constructed in days rather than months using low cost materials and non-specialized labor. Canadian Rockport Homes is a socially conscious company with a quadruple bottom line. They have focused on developing countries and a plant in Chile produced 30,000 homes that families were able to purchase in the past year.Check out their web site at www.canadianrockport.com Maggie Dutton, www.sociocracyinaction.ca "Developing Spaces Where Good Ideas Thrive"in Calgary, Alberta Canada _________________________________________________________________Cohousing-L mailing list -- Unsubscribe, archives and other info at: http://www.cohousing.org/cohousing-L/
