[papercreters] Papercrete in Wet Architecture?

I have a question: In my house there is no Garden on the inside there
is a stairwell, but the depth of 2 stories makes it not so likely to
grow much down there, besides that the Space would bee very limited!
So I was thinking what if I build a new circular/oval staircenter with
soil on the inside lets say 6 foot diameter at the bottom or more, and
full of apertures where plants can get to soil, still with the main
reason so it takes the soil up to the light with the psibility to get
Grapes for example growing there which will take their roots any depth
anyway! Really best would be even a mix of Papercrete with 'Living
Tree Architecture' - so I would have as the dump load of my solar
cells a pump that pumps water up from a well to keep the column and
soil inside wet, and I connect the soil on green Roofs that I want to
make via this tower. I want to have frogs and such making home with
me!

What type of papercrete mix might work here?

Thanks in advance for any interesting ideas and observations!
Cheers
Tobias

[papercreters] Re: tow mixer



Thank you Bobby, good info.  I haven't been able to mess with it yet, septic problems, trees roots - leach line.  Tractor coming tomorrow to dig it up.  Fun.

Re: [papercreters] Digest Number 2599

There is no need to disassemble. Jack up one side of the tow mixer
so one tire is off the ground. Rock the wheel, first clockwise, then
counterclockwise. If the brake is frozen, you will not be able to
wiggle the wheel. If the differential is rusted up, you should be
able to wiggle the wheel, even if only a little bit.

Of course, if the brake is rusted, the only solution is disassemble the brakes.

Then check the other side.

[papercreters] Little place on the mesa. [1 Attachment]

[Attachment(s) from JUDITH WILLIAMS included below]

I'm thinking of putting my place on the market but wanted to offer it to friends and papercrete lovers first. I have a 1/12 acre lot at the tip of the mesa with a great view of the Pedernal and Chama River valley, 2 12 X 16 buildings with fireplaces, adobe floors and nice plaster, deeded access and possible well agreement. I also put in a nice raised bed garden with good soil and a few fruit trees. It's off grid but electric is close.  Message me for price and details.

Re: [papercreters] tow mixer locked



Also, when you made your tow mixer did you first remove the brake shoes?  I've had mine seize up because a brake shoe got stuck to the inside of the drum.  It is an easier fix than tearing the differential apart.  Take off a wheel, remove the drum, take the shoes out and re-assemble.  If it is as frozen as you say and it is because of a seized shoe it will be hard to get apart (think big hammer, long pry bar).  But even if you wreck the drum it is not necessary for a tow mixer, (the edge could get cracked and chipped all you need is the stud for the tire in the middle).

My tow mixer is several years old and I haven't used it in a couple of years,  I went to use it the other day and the blade will not turn, the mixer will not move forward.   Any ideas on how to loosen it all up?  There is some rust, I don't know if that's the whole reason or what.  I've sprayed it with WD40'w rust dissolver and smacked the blade a few times with a hammer to try to knock it loose but nothing so far.  I'm hoping I don't have to replace the axle,  really hoping!  Anyone else have this happen?
