Houses of Adobe

Temperatures increasingly higher sometimes become unbearable and determine us to appeal to installation in homes of ventilation systems and insulation. Studies done by American researchers have shown, however, that PVC windows and air conditioning affect the body and indoor air becomes even more polluted than outside. Vapors emanating from the paint on the walls of the lake on the floor or furniture and modern chipboard hardboard, contain a harmful gas, indistinguishable, which retained glass, grind our lungs, airways and corrode our steamy cornea. Air conditioning circulated through dusty pipes and microorganisms can cause serious allergies, especially in susceptible individuals. All these “features” are actually an expensive way to aggravate our life, though short-term effects may seem beneficial. As in most areas, happiness is that there always is an alternative.

Classified as “poor houses” adobe houses seem to be, but most healthy homes and also most resistant to earthquake. As building materials, adobe or bread are good insulating and warm welcomed with a weight and slowly succumbing. Wood, clay and straw- the underlying construction of such houses – are organic materials, natural, providing a healthy indoor environment, beneficial. Structure of adobe houses is made of wood forks and wattle, which beat the clay with straw, or, we know that wood is very elastic, the home having a greater resistance to earthquakes than structures built with concrete or brick. Another undeniable advantage of the adobe houses and bread is the low cost thereof.

If you exclude the preconceptions and demands imposed by contemporary, some buildings such disadvantages are minor:
Houses of adobe do not support ratios and any subsequent changes (such as repartitioning) – construction being a whole better clot;
– If it is not maintained for a longer period of time in a degradation process difficult to control.

To give them a modern look, the houses of clay can be modified and decorated according to current standards. Such as: walls, usually constructed of woven trouser that is dry or “beat” the earth mixed with straw and dung or mud bricks are covered with modern finishes. Depending on your budget you can get a simple and inexpensive method, which consists of applying a net on the wall or pretentious like Tadelakt technology. Tadelakt is a Moroccan traditional technique, a special kind of limestone is applied as a coating is compacted with a special ceramic stone, and by finishing with soap and wax to get a fascinating area with a natural gloss.
