WHAT DO YOU MEAN NO WALLS

So exactly how do you build a house that eliminates the trades?

You use your brain and you question things. Does a wall have to be drywall? No. A wooden fence can be a wall. A pile of rocks could serve as a wall. Dense vegetation can be a wall. Water can be a wall. Cabinets could be a wall.

In fact, they will be. When we sell the house it will be listed as a three bedroom, two and a half bath house and it will function just like any other three/two. Perhaps even better. Because every wall in the house is actually a cabinet. That means as a structure it defines space and as a space it’s functional, so virtually every wall in the house provides storage. Brilliant.

But what about the exterior? It’s a new type of concrete masonry unit. It’s finished on the outside, finished on the inside, accommodates a vapor block area so moisture can’t pass through, provides an R50 insulation value and it’s structurally stable. Not bad. And because it’s finished on both sides and it’s solid, that means no painter, no electric and no plumbers are needed for the exterior walls.

We’re off to a good start. More to come.
