[papercreters] Bas season for block making




​My experience in making blocks or long elevated trays outdoors was to always cover with glass, and or lay a black plastic tarp under with air flow, and cover with black plastic too..on the PNW coast zones we get short summers, lots of fog, rain early some years and Oregon interior where Lost Valley alt. living  community is always gets wet ​weather, so lots of left over shower doors, old window, any old slider doors are propped over the blocks out to cure.

When I visited there I was impressed at how efficient they were in whole weedy areas with curing blocks, always elevated off the ground.  When we see AZ or TX heat they can form them on the dirt because they bake all day must faster there.

waiting too long to start  in summer doesn't help, and pouring very thick slows drying.  I tried lots of cardboard trays, so the water could soak thru a bit, but keep shape, and of course drained the mixes for a while first.
Mixes left on a screen over  a drum gets to a sculptable consistency and you can shape sculptures for the garden or play with ideas for art.

[papercreters] Re: bad season for papercrete



Heck Yeah.  I made some blocks in early August and they only started drying after I managed to move the soggy things under the carport.  Dang rain.

[papercreters] bad season for papercrete

Am I the only one who was looking forward to a hot, dry summer to do
papercrete? We have our framework up, our mixer is working very well.
And even days when it is not supposed to rain, we are getting surprise
thunder storms. Lots of fun when up working on the roof.

Update on our place. We are on plan C on most stuff, the logs we had
for the reciprocal roof could not take the sideways pressure, as we
lowered the Charlie stick, two broke. They gently floated down to the
ground, our helpers were devastated, we were numb. 6 months of work,
debarking the logs, getting them all ready to go up, putting them up,
then ....... So 2 weeks later we tore it all down, left the henge, and
put 4 logs as uprights in the middle of the building and used
dimensional lumber and created a roof.

Being full time farmers does make it hard to work on the house, there
are times when we don't get much done because the farm needs work. But,
the cupola roof is almost done. The papercrete is up, the petrified
hessian will go up hopefully tomorrow, unless we get rained out again.

Our mixing system allow us to reuse almost 60% of our water, over and
over again. The one aspect of papercrete we were not happy about was
the amount of water it uses, but we have that solved now. So, when the
rain stops, we will be back out there, trying to get todays mix installed.

It is an adventure, I will say that.

We appear to be still trying to recover from the fire. Trees are falling like toothpicks.

Any address for the alternative refrigeration group?
