A house for a cold climate from designer AndrewMichlera, Colorado, USA A house for a cold climate is always being built using insulating materials. To date, the most popular of these was foam plastic, laid between concrete blocks and interior trim, as well as on the outside under the cladding. Its main disadvantage is that it is made of hazardous chemicals and contains harmful toxins. Therefore, when designer and builder Andrew Michler began designing his own home, he decided to completely abandon the plastic foam. For the construction took several typesnatural wood Andrew came up with a smart and economical solution: surround the interior with a hollow space filled with stone wool and cellulose insulation. This allowed him to completely abandon the traditional concrete and foam, replacing them with wood and eco-friendly insulation. As a result, he got a two-story building with a sloping roof, which houses the living rooms, office and shop. The new technology has caused an ambiguous reaction of the participants of the Congress in Seattle. What do you think about this proposal?
