ONE COMMUNITY WEEKLY UPDATE DETAILS

HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING PROGRESS

Highest Good housing, cob construction, earthbag construction, straw bale construction, earthship construction, subterranean construction, sustainable homes, eco-homesOne Community is creating an abundant world through Highest Good housing that is artistic and beautiful, more affordable, more space efficient, lasts longer, DIY buildable, and constructed with healthy and sustainable materials:

This week the core team continued creating the Aircrete Engineering and Research: Compression Testing, Mix Ratios, R-value, and More page. We completed a detailed review of the finished first draft of the page.

Aircrete Engineering and Research, Creating an Abundant World, One Community Weekly Progress Update #497

Then another core team continued updating the aircrete webpage based on that feedback. She updated formatting of the headings, converted heading titles to all caps, inserted an extra line before each heading title, added missing anchors, and recreated data tables in a spreadsheet and generated images of it to be placed on the site (instead of building the table there) so it will scale properly on phones and other devices.

The core team member managing the aircrete compression testing team created a task list for the new aircrete team. The tasks were broken down by week and addressed important questions around sustainable building materials. We also helped with the onboarding process of the new aircrete team, responded to comments on hub connector document, and made plans to address some with the input of a mechanical engineer.

This week Daniela Andrea Parada (Civil Engineering Student) completed her 45th week helping with the Sustainable Roadways, Walkways, and Landscaping tutorial development. This week Daniela continued to focus on making correction and addition to the Flexible Pavement Design section. As Daniela had previously bolded any phrases that needed changing or more explanation, she had also left all the bolded section she knew would take longer to complete. Therefore Daniela focused on those bolded areas this week, researching more information or referring back to previous resources in order to better explain the narrative. She also added a term to the glossary in addition to downloading all the resources that had been used and incorporating them/linking them to the resources section of the Roadways Report. Pictures below are related to this work.

Diwei Zhang (Mechanical Engineer) completed his 28th week of work, now focused on 3D modeling and analysis review for the Net-zero Bathroom component of the Earthbag Village. Diwei summarized the main components of collection and pre-filtration in the rainwater harvesting system this week. Members of collection and pre-filtration include roof, gutters and downspouts, and pre-filtration. Guidelines for the selection of roof material for potable and nonpotable water were introduced. Sizing gutters and downspouts, and different styles of pre-filtration were discussed. Pictures below show some of this work.

Ming Weng (MS Geography & Environmental Engineering) completed his 24th week helping with the Best Small and Large-scale Community Options for Sustainable Processing and Reuse of Non-recyclables research, report, and tutorial. This week, Ming completed communication with all the merchants he’d found in Alibaba, or introduced by previous merchants via sharing name card. After filtering information, results have been organized and he’s come to the conclusion that WTE solutions via incineration are not for small-scale applications. A minimum amount of 220 tons per month of waste seems to be what is needed. Merchants manufacturing incinerators have suggested use of small but non-WTE products, so a new approach has to be figured out. The next focus is research on outputs of smaller incinerators to explore ways to sustainably use them. Pictures below show some of this work-in-progress.

Jieying “Mercy” Cai (Sustainability and Climate Policy Researcher) completed her 4th week working on completing the Best Small and Large-scale Community Options for Sustainable Processing and Reuse of Non-recyclables research, report, and tutorial. This week Mercy finished the tutorial as planned. She researched and wrote the “Examples of countries with sustainable programs in place”, “Conclusion”, and “FAQs” sections. She also reviewed previous research and edited and rewrote the “Cost analysis examples” and “Upcoming challenges to WTE and how to get prepared” sections. Mercy then finished formatting the references list and saved copies of articles to her DropBox. See below for some pictures related to this work.

Yuxi Lu (Architectural Designer) completed her 45th week working on the Duplicable City Center architectural review and updates related to the structural code. This week Yuxi assisted on window discussion and communication. The window made was test fit into the current model verifying its frame fit. The Greywater greenhouse pond was also further improved based on feedback. Instead of pumping water up to an elevation to create the cascading water effect, the pond now starts at ground level and we use gravity to create the same effect, which is more sustainable. A curb around the pond was added for water retainment and decorative purposes too. Pictures of some of this work are below.

Charles continued working on PDF comments/feedback for the Hub Connector page. He had a meeting with Jae to discuss issues with the page and made notes of the issues Jae brought up and spent a few hours resolving them. He moved text that was too long in captions, uploaded larger images and linked them to the corresponding smaller images, and corrected heading sizes, spacing, & capitalization. He also updated alt tags to contain more keywords and shortened the title tags and captions for images. Charles then started working on the Duplicable City Center Natural Pool and Spa page. He was directed to keep the current content and update from the corresponding Google Doc. Charles noted that the introduction was unchanged and that there were new sections starting with ECO-SPA Layout. He completed the sections through Control Panel to Pumps. He also noted that two of the images had the word therapeutic misspelled and that they needed to be corrected. See below for some pictures of this work.
