seriously, look it up
the only reason building codes exist is because too many (((builders))) were being sued for crappy construction that burned easily while the owners were also making insurance claims on the fire-traps
(((insurance corps))) demanded building standards be met before they would insure the buildings...writing the standards into law protected the builders from being sued by the building owners for crappy building....and enshrined the shitty building standards into law in such a way that regular people now have to pay someone else to build their houses with approved materials across most of the US

Because large parts of the USA gets heavy amounts of rain.
Areas that don’t, were traditional mud materials like adobe are used, can even have issues, because you have to keep the outer mud coating maintained, which can be costly if you have to hire someone, and it requires necessary knowledge of the techniques if you do the work yourself.
Attempts were made to use cement coatings to alleviate maintenance, but the concrete actually trapped moisture in the structures and made things worse.
Hydraulic lime coatings, or waterglas might be useable, but I’m not sure whether they’ve been tested enough, and if they were recomended, most contractors would probably just cheap out and use cement anyway, because it’s way cheaper than the other materials.
>>
>>202934524
Yes, and probably more now than in the last hundred years.
In all likelyhood it’s mostly rich people, culural or anthropology devotees, and envirenmentalist types though, so probably still not huge numbers.
There was a major issue for a while, because someone, maybe the park service, decided to coat old abobe buildings with cement for durability reasons, and the cement trapped water and moisture in the adobe structure causing damage.

>>202937124
In hot regions with minimal rainfall using unfired clay is fine if done right.
The clay bakes to a certain extent under the sun,
and while it doesn’t get baked enough to not absorb water and become useable clay again, the sun baking process makes it temporarily restistant to water, so a breif heavy rainfall will mostly just hit the sun dreid mud and drip off, same for mud roofs.
Enough water may get absorbed to make the surface layer of SD mudbrick soft, but when the sun comes out again, the mud rebakes.

>>202943926
it varies, a 9'*9'*6" slab is about $195 but they normally require 3 yards, so about $250 a truck.
then you need a frame, tools, and the land. if you are doing a lager slab, like a shop (25 yards+ and super level and smooth) floor. yes $10,000 for labor, materials, and profit sounds about right.

you also need to count setting the sub-grade leveling, dirt exfill and infill, as well as labor for that.

It's very inexpensive, that's why they use it in shithole countries. The earth is excavated from the building site or delivered locally and the bags come on a big continuous roll that is hooked up to a thing on wheels that holds it open so it can be filled as it;s laid in place. It's like a modernized cob home. Many examples are circular walls but it is easily adapted to more traditional styles. It has a lot of potential.

Iirc, there was a Swedish building company that actually did this test and found that heavy duty materials like brick concrete or stone were actually worse for a fire, not because the materials are weaker or anything, but because the interior basically becomes a roaring oven and the fire inside becomes a lot more intense because of it. It was a relatively small little shed sort of thing they did the tests with, but it was fun to watch. It was a video someone posted in one of these theads once. Can't find it now, sorry.

Explain this to me.

Most of those materials experience a significant drop in outgassing if the manufacturer is smart enough to hold the product long enough.

The fact, is that we are surrounded by perfectly natural sources of carcinogens. We should definitely do what we can to minimize the artificial sources, but I'm pretty sure that fire risk is a larger risk during the actual productive years of someone's life.

Again, you clearly don't understand the social contract. Your neighbors gave up the natural right to murder you for harming them, in exchange for social systems that keep you in your place.

I don't own a home but I'd be pretty fucking mad if I paid for a nice home, paid to keep it nice, and some yard moved in down the street with their mud hut and open sewage pit that was contaminating the ground water.

You 'muricans should learn to build first buildings that can do fine in -30 celsius. 6. C. A. Nothnagle Log House is a good prime example of building in 'murica built by finns that still is fine with no problems.

huh...I've been alive for close to 40 years and never once have I had anything happen to me or anyone I know where having a fire retardant mattress saved a life
I do, however, know dozens of people with various cancers
>>
>>202952980
And do those fires wake you up when they catch your mattress on fire, or when your smoke alarm goes off?

Who has kerosene lamps? lol

Theoretically if we ever brought back a meteor with more resources than Earth ever had (I've read articles about them being in our asteroid belt) and metal such as steel became cheaper than wood due to being able to quick melt/mold it and having limitless of it, would building all our modern houses and buildings out of it be feasible?

Dirt washes away easily you dimwit. Look what happens after a wild fire, mudslides.

Why don't more people throw some soil on their houses? Warm in winter and nice and cool in summer. Fire resistant too.
>>
>>202937433
Why do I feel like that'd take forever to make enough bricks for a house?

The roof already deflects any water that falls on it though.

It depends with what you mix it with.

> Even Africans can afford
no, they can't. These machines are bought by all these retarded charities. Then they go to Africa to shoot a couple of pics with native apes using them. And when they're gone, native apes stop building, steal or break machines or sell them for scrap metal. Then they sit on the ground waiting for more gibs.

I heard it’s only going to cost you like 5% more to build with steel these days. People just don’t give a fuck and buy wood houses.

If you put soil on the roof its gonna trap moisture and anything use for the roof is gonna rot or rust away

2 reasons

1. Codes
2. Cheap oil

The earth crust consists of 5% iron you dolt, the whole asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter wouldn't make a dent in that.

Do they have mud up there in Canada to build with? Or is it all just semi thawed perma frost? Is it the inhalation of methane that makes you a faggot?

Umm... yeah? Just look at this rock, fucking thoroughly rotten! You wouldn't eat that rotten rock if your life depended on it.

no, that would be the dirty sulfuric tar sand exhaust, while you're a faggot from cock cobbling/ball caressing the middle east's only democracy to keep that sweet, sweet crude flowing so you can drive your one ton suv half a block in the comfort of ac, cooling your 300lbs of amerilard, to purchase your mega ultra gulp (with credit, of course, because your house poor)

Agreed, after the wildfires owned NorCal this fall, we have a bunch of boomers whinging about losing their fire insurance, and none of them know which end of a chainsaw to hold.
I want fireproof(ish) construction, but I'm not sure if concrete walls can be made comfy, or if they'll weep and make mold.

It's unnecessary.
America has enough resources to make affordable housing, if people were determined enough to build their own homes they should be allowed to but plenty of laws make it hard or unnecessarily expensive.
>>
Can the soil in Wyoming's Red Desert be used for adobe?
>>
>>202957485
if people were free to build cheap homes, there wouldn't be any homeless and that would put an entire government sector out of business...along with a huge amount of charities and non-profits who are only able to operate due to the persistent homeless problem created by the housing regulations and building codes
