Shroomery Commune Ver. 8.09775 * 10^7
    #3516076 - 12/18/04 03:36 AM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Hey, I know it's been a while since I've asked, but who's still up for building the Shroomery commune?


$5,000 a head is the target price. I'm looking into papercrete/fidobe structures as the most favored model.



http://www.calearth.org/

Check out the gallery.




If 10 people came up with $50,000 total and were willing to work at it for a summer it could be done well within budget in a rural location with few neighbors in the midsouth U.S.A.

Man I would totally do that if money wasn't a problem... I couldn't make 500 bucks nevermind 5 grand... Bills, bills, hobbies, and addictions take up alll and I mean all the money I have man...

If that ever works out I'd be down man... I know I'm like a "nobody" around here but I'd totally commune with you cats... Shit its a commune around my house as it is so having cooler people around would be the only change for me :grin:

I want to learn some of this stuff so I was checking out the link you posted to earthbag.com or whatever the fuck. Then I saw the apprenticeship program and I thought WOW COOL!!! I can go learn how to build earthbag houses with some more experienced people before I try my own. So I'm thinking well since I'll be giving a week or more of my labor to constructing someone's house maybe it'll be for free, or for enough just to cover the cost of my fraction of the construction supplies. Then I see It's $3,000 per person. Then I realized they are just another bunch of greedy pseudohippy capitalist cocksuckers.

I'm interested, and can pull together that kind of cash if I really need to (sell some stuff).

I like the idea of setting up a community out in a rural area. By carefully selecting the land, we can probably avoid building codes and other legal restrictions on our use of the land.

Papercrete, earthbags, straw bales - there are a number of different alternative building materials that we could use. Some will be more appropriate under different conditions, particularly how easy and cheap they are to obtain and the amount of rain we can expect.

Other things to we need to consider in building are plumbing and water supply, and heat, energy, and electricity. With 10 or so industrious and intelligent people, we should be able to make something really good.

Why does someone always want to buy an island. An island is totally not within reasonable reach as a goal.

Why don't we just build a flying cloud city instead. :/

Not much, really - just keeping to the theme of my name. Good job on spotting them w/o the spaces.

Apprenticeship program?


We don't need no stinking apprenticeship program.

The school I go to is stuffed full of concrete experts. A few years back they won a concrete canoe building competition. They built a canoe out of cement, raced it, and won.

Hippies are afraid to use shit like plastic too. I'm not. Alot of them think portland cement manufacture is "environmentally unfreindly" and not "sustainable" because it's manufacture releases a bunch of CO2. What they don't realize is that when you add water it re-absorbs the carbon back into itself. So the only CO2 released is that caused by producing the heat required to de-carbeurize the stone.

The main goal here is cheap reliable housing, not an exercise in "sustainability".

It's not hard to become an expert in this field. I think about 1 out of every 3 people who build one of these houses writes a book about it or releases a video.

I think it would be a great idea if the shroomery crowd would go into online business adventures with me. Then we would have a better chance of building a community. I'd like to buy a whole resort over near the australian rainforests. Not only would we have a resort to run. We'd also have a place to live.

If anyone is interested in starting any type of online business let me know.

Peace,
Droz

How about instead of Australia we do it in a poor hispanic country like Brazil, or Peru.

Then we can save the rainforrests AND bang 10? hookers all day.

Peru would be cool.

I like this idea BH. While an island isnt that far fetched, its more than most of us would be able to do. I think this would be a fairly reasonable project. I know nothing about these things, but I know some stuff about carpentry, surveying, excavation & roads. Also know a lil about electrical design, and like most alot about technology. The one thing that I know absolutely nothing about is plumbing.

5,000 isnt alot of money either. I am sure anyone here could make that in a few months if they tried.

I'd like to see an entire system of mini-communities spread out all over the country, maybe even some in Canada. Members could move to any vacant unit in the system.


Basically like a hybrid adobe nomadic timesharing network. Members could schedule time in one part of the country or another and live all over the US/Canada (and maybe South America, Europe,Australia, etc.)

why do it in the US? everything would cost a hell of a lot more than if we did it in Asia, S America, or Africa somewhere... I still have some schooling to finish, but am planning to try "living off the land" for a few years maybe 4-5 years down the road, probably in southern India because I can buy land off of family friends for dirt cheap...

I'd be completely in support of a commune  :thumbup:

Perhaps you could find some old farmland with a few rather old farmhouses or silos and such on it, and have the commune people fix it and build around those. Maybe fix them up enough and some could live in them.

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.
