If using a tilt up form that becomes an integral frame, especially when panels are bolted together as a wall in "smaller" houses, the conduit in place of re-bar should be explainable to local planning regulators who haven't heard that re-bar in dense concrete has been causing premature structural buildings failures. Or for that matter are ignoring updating building offset's and crippling "multiple housing" as mother-in-law additions as 399 square feet park models, or the mostly home-built, affordable small self-contained transportable small houses on parking lots that already have helped the tourism industry by being rented out as B&B units.
... On the leading edge of becoming truly ECO housing with Elon Musk's Tesla Solar Tile roof and rainwater harvesting system leading to integral tank storage, along with his Powerwall Storage Battery should answer two of the "best use" land planning infrastructure objections in support of the old established order. As,"How to bill for electricity and water service?
Going off-grid, for now, leaves the waste water and garbage disposal managed system long-term RV style in California and Arizona by truck services that use a long reel up quick-connect macerated pump rubber hose system in lieu of a costly underground sewer connection. Also, some independent truck vendors sell "potable" water.
So the very healthy good news here is that the Bill and Melinda Foundation has been working on a toilet system that separates "black water" into a composting or biofuel burnable, very, very natural gas. The "gray water" along with a biodegradable sink and shower waste is to be processed into a re-purposed "landscape" water as used by big Las Vegas casinos.
So as some of the other uses of Nepheline Syenite are in swimming pool filters, and as the base for hydroponics gardening, Oregon's inventor Tessa Jetter of Wildflower Hangers is already at work designing a FoamKrete™ "green garden wall."
The mixing and then curing in a form is similar to bread dough raising in a pan. A smooth surface can be struck off screed, and sanded, to look exactly like an applied dry wall.
Since concrete building blocks have been proven by the do-it-yourself marketplace, let's do some 60% saving shopping. For the ease of understanding by a weekend homebuilder lets calculate in batch units of five 94-pound bags of Portland Limestone Cement do-it-yourself big box building store for $12 each, or $ 60, plus a variable amount of mixed quality sand and gravel aggregate needed to build a wall that can be measured in square feet.
When four of five bags of Portland Cement are replaced by one measured bag of natural Nepheline Syenite ... excuse me, that is FoamKrete™... that looks at this stage of bootstrapping a dealer/distributor network as the retail price can match the affordable price of one bag of cement, the difference between $60 being reduced to $24 supports a real 60% saving during FoamKrete™'s bootstrapped LLC start-up.
... More than a bargain. What is not as easily calculated when comparing mixed bags of concrete ready cement with a lesser quality of sand, and gravel and rock, which does not expand. Not only is concrete with "voids" difficult to cure and polish to a smooth surface, weaker walls require expensive reinforcement to meet a traditional home's load bearing wall of 2,500 PSI, that doesn't even come close to a fire, sound, mold, an insulation protection standard.
Look on YouTube video for CLC affordable housing being constructed without re-bar, in China, Russia, Iran, Pakistan, Australia, South Africa (almost anywhere but America) by new and exciting building techniques, slashing costs, including computerized 3D printing. I liked a clip that has disappeared where the hollow walls became a fresh rainwater storage system, which actually may be illegal in some states?
Which brings up the question of how thick do FoamKrete™ walls need to be in square feet calculations when building to traditional home building plans?
There is not enough data on proven units in the US to date. As Portland, Oregon is experiencing a tragic affordable housing crisis, FoamKrete™ is looking for Architect/Engineer/designers to come up with an independent package of affordable housing 'blueprints' along with a costing estimate sheet, and step-by-step instructions locked into a copyright protected Adobe PDF that may be purchased on-line here, and other places, for a reasonable PayPal payment direct to the creator of the how-to-do plans. Talk to Sharon Ehlmann about that.
In America proper, other than Table Mountain, Oregon, the only other commercial source of Nepheline Syenite is 3M out of Arkansas and New Mexico. The Minnesota Mining & Manufacturing Company proudly was featured in an international bestselling book, "In Search of Excellence," one of the biggest selling business books ever written. Their corporate structure allows "out of the box" innovators the lead over traditionally minded lawyers and their cost cutting accountants that might not understand the financial phrase of "forward looking."
Those curious about searching for nepheline syenite as a building material on the Internet also need to realize what private proprietary reports have not revealed to the public the scientific breakthroughs of late. other than nepheline syenite being in competition with coal burning smokestack fly ash, a nasty chemical substitution for Si02. Using Al2O3, supplying through only five suppliers of Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (look that up on YouTube) in the US, and only two (?) of these use free traded or US nepheline syenite.
3M's "independent" engineers understand the potential of new ideas and are selling finished AAC slabs that do have a European Rockwool tilt-up wall similarity. 3M also has been into roofing tiles for some time, appear to be working with Owens Corning, and more recently with Elon Musk's Tesla Solar Roof which will make the Eco practicality of both capturing "free" rainwater and electrical power.
It is wonderful that the US still has big corporations that manufacture homes, but as the 78-year old signal signer owner of 250,000,000 uniform tons of in-place of nepheline syenite dedicated to a USFS CFR and EPA ECO plan of action dedicated to a FoamKrete™ that can economically, environmentally, and righteously can be safely be mined underground by otherwise unemployed Oregon loggers and mill-workers.
... My retirement! Given my age, and mining/media career of serendipitous happenstance, verified on my website of BarryMurray [dotcom], of an independent contract prospector, thinking different than the average type bear, I have formulated transferring Western Mining Law of 1872 proven tonnage into an individual to individual transaction for $10, plus a continuing 2% royalty on Lincoln County production of the in-place ton certificate.
This can be purchased via PayPal, to the individual individual asking for an Introduction form, to establish who also is real. Representatives of obvious hedge fund or manipulated commodities speculators will be politely asked to apply at the back door.
Corporate interests who wish to finance a turnkey mining and milling contract on a costs plus 10% basis; or a FoamKrete™ Regional Dealer/Distributorship location in position to rent the portable equipment; or flowing FoamKrete™ through by trade-in for land to build whole ECOvillagesofAmerica.com... please talk to Sharon Ehlmann at (818) 961-4707, or by E-Mail to CorporateSales@FoamKrete.com.
Obviously the purchase price that will be increased once the FoamKrete™ wholesale market price is established through actual production, and the FoamKrete™ retail price has caused a reasonable bump to that $10 ton, which really qualifies the individual as a Dealer when it comes time to forming local Distributorship's that almost can be through of a franchise.
As legal financial investment right now the piece of paper that covers an individual's rock through FoamKrete™ contracts to mine, mill, and market, or build within a tax advantageous way for the individual dealer joining a distributor network to secure a country-wide trademarked "franchise" that is already protected by being the scarcity of naturally soluble Nepheline Syenite.
The funny part about a Ten dollar per startup ton, for now, is the Oregon Nepheline Syenite complex chemistry happens to be almost the same Nepheline Syenite chemistry (shown below) of what is currently being sold on Alibaba.com for $250 per ton FOB China.
Why the price difference? Volume. I would rather 'give away' billions to make millions. As a right to life high school dropout only subject to salaried withholding tax while employed by 'Old Iron Pants' Curtis LeMay as a one-step above USAF photo intel analyst in England, I continued on a life-long learning curve in what is now the University of West London.
I actually have had two freelance careers. Sixty years in Mineral Exploration learned by doing, and in Magazines as successfully publishing a high gloss color print Economic Currents Magazine, where again I learned by research an understanding how impossible Ponzie schemes have led to even more complicated retirement disasters.
I want to pass on this economic opportunity for energetic, self-starting blue color workers looking for a pathway to success to "join in the start-up of an affordable housing business." Where one man, one vote, trumps a designated "two percent" where casino capitalists have been controlling the emotional Wall Street big board game of "I Win," but sadly, where retirement programs, loose.
I also am an Asperger's innovative thinker, as "share the wealth" Steve Jobs that Wall Street fired; Bill Gates along with Warren Buffet funding critical research into alternative answers to sustainability; and Henry Ford who doubled the daily wage on his Model T assembly line so the workers who produced his successful creation could actually afford to buy one to commute to work. And I truly believe one of the pathways to financial recovery out of Oregon's housing crisis will be FoamKrete™.
Research Opinion from Stanford lately is that the major of the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) a Bush-era solution where only connected bankers benefited by trading shares in their banks before government cash infusions, which really "kicked the can down the road".
Which has brought us to the brink of a Second Housing Bubble, in a Second Great Recession, in a Second Great Depression, for not paying attention to the basic need of affordable shelter. The real insult is that artificially inflated paper commodity prices have no reality today when measured in the long, and short selling devaluation of the true wealth of the Earth.
This PDF is being updated with the price addition to $10 ton, and a 2% continuing royalty, which actually is a lien protection for all the early investors involved. Especially when and if said individuals bill of sale / assigned to FoamKrete™ by numbered certificate becomes a physical cryptocurrency replacement to Bitcoins, or Ethereum, for being backed by 500 million tons of $10 per ton Oregon Nepheline Syenite.
