budget, building officials, or engineers find it easier to accommodate
uniform, proprietary materials (o.k. so, a lot of the time!) which
natural builders are hesitant to use. This is where a product
as elegant as Durisol comes in. Made of 78% reclaimed wood chips
and mineral wool insulative inserts, these insulated concrete
forms are lightweight & simple to install. They take screws
and can be cut with a circular saw using a wood blade! In this
convenient one-day session, you will learn how to install these
units and the myriad of ways they can be braced off for the concrete
pour. You will learn how these forms are compatible with natural
materials, and the building science of how they handle moisture.
We will also cover the different approaches to finishing these
walls whether they are for a foundation or a complete enclosure
solutions. This course will include a field trip to the manufacturing
facility as well!
We also request that participants sign a Waiver prior to the commencement
of the workshop.
