Over thirty years we have developed and perfected the system- a technology for building Resilient fuel-free houses with multi-generation service life, out of natural materials that renew, cleaning the air of pollutants as they grow. Theoretically, this is mind-boggling. But more importantly. we make it happen. Homes are in production, and under construction now. Call us to see it done. Builders who have done it, love the lego-like technique. Homeowners who have experienced it will never go back. Their house is, to them and officially, a Modern Marvel. And they will leave a legacy for many future generations.
We introduced the laminated timber wall to North America. The technology is spreading, but only in commercial structures, called Plyscrapers. No tower has yet, combined the double-shell with Southern Yellow Pine for climate control. When large (9’ x 48’ x 6 inches thick) gluelams become available in SYP, we will be able to design and build up to 12 story self-heating/cooling double shell buildings.
Enertia as energy, particularly electrical and rotational Enertia, are largely unexplored. Yet Newton made it his First Law. Entropy, enthalpy, and Enertia are interconnected-the ultimate source of fuel and pollution free energy. The hourly time-shift between the rotating Earth and its liquid core contains more energy than man has used since the dawn of time. Some future physicist may develop a Unified Theory of Enertia.
Our use of the latent energy of laminated wood components, CLT’s (cross laminated timbers) and CLIP’s (cross laminated insulated timbers) is unique in the world. This exciting new third application (Energy-Storage) for wood will easily double the use and replanting of wood in the future. cleaning the air as it grows. Specialty laminations with imbedded grids can de-humidify, and even make electricity like batteries. Laminates with the new composite metal foams (CMF) being developed at NC State will lead to new military applications and EMP protection.
The world’s housing infrastructure needs to be replaced. Stick-framed houses, with a 30-50 year life, and dependent on fossil fuel, won’t cut it. Shelter for five billion people- is the largest project (and market, approaching 100 trillion dollars) in human history and we have the technology. There is simply not enough conventional building material- it must use renewables. There is not enough fuel, the houses must be self-heating. Climate change? Warming or cooling, it does not matter, our structure is the same- Enertia® Homes self-adjust. And our long life is essential, or you will have to do it all over again.
