The fashion for all natural and environmentally friendly is also reflected in modern approaches to construction - new natural materials and "green" technologies are increasingly being used to build houses and other buildings. Customers are willing to pay more if they know that their home uses natural materials and energy-saving technologies, which are successfully used by developers.
Construction debris, which in a short time itself decomposes, does not harm the environment and does not require significant efforts for disposal? Yes, today it is no longer a fantasy, but a reality. Biodegradable materials that allow you to avoid creating huge landfills6 do not pollute the soil and water bodies with harmful chemical compounds, are increasingly used in modern construction. And these are not some technological inventions, this is a new look at the usual materials - clay, straw, and natural dyes. For example, artificial paints are easily replaced by a mixture of mineral dyes, egg white and lime, and this coating is not inferior to many ordinary paints.
Considering the cost of energy carriers and the size of utility bills, the issue of energy efficiency comes to one of the key places when building a house. But what prevents to replace artificial materials with natural? There are many examples of the use of reed insulation, Kamka, wood wool, pressed straw, cellulose and cotton as heat-insulating materials, which in quality and efficiency are not inferior to the best commercial samples. At the same time in such insulation there will be up to 80-85% of the material after processing, which makes the production of such insulation as environmentally friendly as possible.
The use of rammed earth and as a building material dates back to a single century - even in ancient centuries houses were built using such material. At the same time, the process of the production of earthen blocks differed little from that used several centuries ago: the earth, together with the addition of particles of gravel, clay, concrete, is pressed into strong blocks, solidifies and can be used as a brick. As well as pressed blocks of straw and wood wool. In such houses there will be optimal thermoregulation - it is warm in winter and cool in summer, moreover, this construction method generates significantly less emissions than traditional methods.
