there is a lot of talk about architecture and ugliness of postmodern design, but rarer do people go deeper in that topic and realize the structural stupidity of modern buildings and their toxicity to humans.

ITT Ill present many principles of longlasting and healthy house buildin Ive gathered from researching architecture and all kinds of building technology, Ill touch on (((construction industry))) which is with (((pharmaceutical industry))) one of the most corrupt ones.

To those who doubt that this is a pol thread, ask yourself about the problem of housing and the problem of quality housing.

these are principles to look for in buying or DIYing, Ill go in details…

1st principle - BREATHABILITY



4th – HAT and BOOTS

5th - if you mix materials mix them HORIZONTALLY (gravity will prevent significant movement), avoid vertical layering of different materials as much as you can

1st principle - BREATHABILITY

All walls need to "breath" enough so that moisture will never be trapped anywhere. Modern building materials used by contractors are the worst ones to use. They trap moisture and cause problems that ensure job security for the contractors. Vapor barriers rot houses from the inside out simply from bodily perpetration and cooking moisture. Using vapor barriers requires a host of other support systems to ensure the entire thing actually works just enough to keep contractors from getting sued quickly. That's the main reason why you have extremely old masonry houses and castles still doing well today, yet there are so many modern masonry houses that are falling apart, yet both are well kept and not neglected by their occupants.

Ever felt phisically sick in a modern building and felt like it lacks oxygen, but dont feel that way in a stone house or a log cabin? That is because modern houses are (((airtight))) which is related to asthma problems kids devlop.

File: 31b4fc71583aed7⋯.jpg (59.52 KB, 736x552, 4:3, framing joinery solid wood.jpg)


all materials need to have similar physical property's

for example a house from bricks with lime mortar is going to last forever because lime mortar and bricks have similar stretch and flex.

now that house gets repaired with cement mortar because its faster and cheaper and the repaired wall is going to get many cracks because concrete is much harder than lime and harder than the bricks.

same with timber construction houses which wood survived the rain for more years than the USA is old get a new coat of paint.

the people use new latex waterproof extra chemical paint and the wooden beams are compost after 20 years.

why? because MC Paint is going to get a small crack and traps moisture behind it and because its water tight it can never leave the wood until your house collapses.

pic rel - notice that its framed by joinery and not by steel screws. that house will last +100 years

self explanatory - rain/moistuere/ice protection, if you are under the rain, you absoltuly need waterproof boots and wp hat/umbrella, rest is personal pref

5th - if you mix materials mix them HORIZONTALLY (gravity will prevent significant movement)

while layering vertically does give solid thermal properties, it is bound to fail since it isnt compressed by gravity but with moisture and expansion its just a matter of time for your facade to portrude.

Building a thicc monowall with double layers of brick or thicc logs is a far superior option.

pic rel are modern options of insulation that are all shortlasting (even the "good ones" like external rock wool plastered on aerated brick will fail after 20-30 years). We should bring back monowall

I plan to build an initial house with cob and eventually build a larger house with stone. Building one out of stone will be an enormous project, and will take many years to complete, but is something that will be able to stay standing for generations if done correctly.

The cob will go up much quicker, and that house can eventually be for other family or be a guest house.

this are very good, however, you shouldnt do them in high rain area and possible in cold areas (?) and they create complexities in interiors but provide extreme durability for low investment


you can do both possibly, stone foundations, cob upper, but I recommend just using reinfroced concrete for framing + bricks, much more simple and done more times

I have considered that too. Once I have land I’ll build some stuff like a shed, kids playhouse, or a root cellar to experiment with different materials. But from what I’ve seen I think I prefer cob. A long term stone project is still something I’d like to do, but earthbags could be good for smaller buildings.

Aesthetically they are rather shit, but I guess with good planning an earthbag home could look less like a turd.

I can understand the appeal but they look like turd mounds to me. Would probably only use to build root cellar. I plan to build much larger, with two stories, so earth bags probably not my best bet, and I’d like to keep plastic to a minimum.

they have to have it since they dont breathe by themselves, they RELLY on ventilation (=another expense) but you dont seem to want to understand it.


>What about a house that was all stone? Or mostly stone. Have you seen something like that done?

had the best sleep of my life in one and in blazing summer heat with no AC or HVAC. They are a logistic nightmare to build doe and probably not ideal for very cold areas (wood is better isolator unlike stone), with stone houses you almost alsways have to go deep to count for high thermal mass of stone so that is another expense.

all of these bridges are +100 years old, trick to longterm durabiltiy is different that the trick to shortterm durability. With longterm durability you have to build structure with "softer" materials to prevent them becomeing BRITTLE, (similar to tempering steel), but today noone seems to give a shit and then you have catastrophies like Mirandi

Might be fine as a temporary solution, but aesthetics matter, especially if something is going to be around for a long time. Would rather spend years building a stone house with my children that my grandkids could live in, but could live in a turd while doing that I guess, cob just seems more versatile

Girlfriend likes the idea of building our own home, she wants to learn to make stained glass windows for it and do mosaics on the floors.


>wood is better isolator unlike stone

I didn’t realize that, it’s fairly mild here, usually stays above freezing, but it’s very wet.

I’ve looked at using brick instead, might be easier on the logistics but not sure how the cost would compare

Is called 'Platform Framing'. It followed 'Balloon Framing', logically, as it makes little sense to hang the floors off of the walls.

>All walls need to "breath" enough so that moisture will never be trapped anywhere

This is what windows and doors are for, to air-out the moisture that builds up in the living space.



Air sealing (walls) reduces heat flow from air movement (convection) and prevents water vapor in the air from entering the wall. In a 100-square foot wall, one cup of water can diffuse through untreated drywall (without a vapor barrier) in a year but 50 cups of water can enter through a 1/2-inch diameter round hole. You do not need to worry about diffusion through materials like you do actual holes into your (modern) walls.

How do structural screws, which are made to be flexible like nails, not last 100yrs, especially if you cover/plug your fastener holes and frame with structural logic, making sure the fastener isn't the only joinery ? Hardwood dowel as fasteners is pretty based imo but nobody is doing it really yet, or anymore.

>timber construction houses which wood survived the rain for more years than the USA is old

Also used mud and clay with organic filler as chinking to seal the gaps, which kind of counters your claim here. wikipedia.org/wiki/Log_cabin wikipedia.org/wiki/Log_house wikipedia.org/wiki/Timber_framing wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodworking_joints


You have to keep painted. Let no cracks or peels.

Stain is better imo but I am unsure about the polymer used to seal it liek with Sikkens semi-transparent. You don't really need plastic sealer from moisture only uv protection, unless you are in the water. Pro timber restorers use an epoxy (plastic) to repair old wood and stop decay. This may cause more issues down the road idk.

regarding joining 2 pieces of wood its like this:




Joinery takes a lot of time but bolts can last a lot as well since they account in wood movement unlike nails or even worse screws that dont allow much movement.

>Also used mud and clay with organic filler as chinking to seal the gaps, which kind of counters your claim here.

it supports my claim if anything, mud is softer than wood and with expanding it wont damage the wood, you just re-chink it from time to time.

I simply cant stand the look of that shit plastic maxcompact panel or any king of ventilated facade, such a gimmicky system that changes it colour or warps after 20 years from sun, still better that foam insulation americans use but europe as well is being cucked by gimmicky construction. ventialted facades became a thinkg just because it requires less skillfull labour and time

I live in an earthbag house I build illegally in Western Oregon. Rainy as fuck. Build in a flood prone river-bottom. The building is … how do I say this… EXCELLENT. I spent less than $4000 building the entire thing. One guy, 2 months, plus a month solid of cement work (ugh) got me 310 sq feet of warm-in-winter, cold-in-summer earthbag goodness. I fucking LOVE my little house. My wife and baby son live here with me. We pay $200 a year in taxes on our land since it is (((unbuildable))) due to flood zones and ag zones and building codes and other fake bullshit. I have to fall, saw and split 4 cords of firewood to stay warm each winter. I do about 10 cords a year by hand and keep all the good straight logs for poles/sawed lumber. Anything really nice I paint the ends and stack it to dry for a few years under some big trees. Iv got quite a pile now so I gotta get me a little sawmill…


I lost 25 lbs. I dont have to have a real job any more. I spend every single day with my wife and son. I havent missed even half a day with them in 2 years. Needless to say there is a new baby on the way soon!

Keep each building small. I have a shipping container for a kitchen. A little log cabin for a bath-house, A backup stick-build cabin for guests or just when one of us wants to get some space. I have a shop made from a few containers with a roof over them for equipment maintenance and tools and such.

This is in western oregon on the coast range. It rains A FUCKING LOT here. As I said before it is in a low-lying flood prone area and I have had zero water problems. The walls are 2 feet thick of packed clay earth. I shot them with my .357 as well as emptied a mag of 5.56 into them and not a single round penetrated I have since cemented them and painted them.

The hardest part is getting about 10 acres covered in heavy trees. If you can get that you are golden as the trees can hide your place and will provide fuel for your home.

Quit being a wage slave.

Quit working to end the white race.

Quit committing suicide every single day.

Engineer here.

The way you prevent rot in your walls is by looking at the moisture and temperature profile across the wall cross-section. Different materials in the walls will have different thermal and moisture resistance properties, and you need to make sure that the moisture/temperature profiles will not cause there to be a dew point. Its especially bad if there's a dew point subjected to freeze/thaw.

You need a psychrometric chart for this. There should be metric and standard versions.

Reminds me of SLIPFORM STONE. Slipform stone is a building method using only rough stone and some boards and cement. It can be reinforced with steel as well if needed. It is a very low skill form of stone construction and is also very forgiving to the novice. I was originally going to build with slipform but there are absolutely zero stones on my property ha ha. Not even ONE. So I did earthbag instead since the place has tons of high-clay soil in some areas. Sure, one can have stone brought in but it takes A LOT to do something like this. Look into slipform if you want an extremely high quality building for the cost of time and cement only. Make it with curves and rebar and slight inward tipping so the walls are self-supporting and you will be looking at an AWESOME building that will last 1000 years if you keep the water off those walls. If you soak the walls they will frost-wedge in the winter and it will all come down but keep it dry and it will last forever.

Ok, some more background so you have a clearer picture. I bought A TON of land. It took every penny I had to do it and I got a slammin' deal. for a rough estimate it is more than a mile walk to go all the way around my property. This is not really necessary but it worked out good in this instance because I have been leasing out about 80% of it. I get about 1k per month for this with no end in sight. The remaining land I live on, do my firewood and soon sawn lumber on. I have 2 farm stands. since I have a road to the north and a road to the south. They have small solar systems and a few AGM batteries to run a small fridge for eggs and stuff like that that I have extra. I make a couple hundred bucks a month off of those with no effort.

We have bee hives… Like 30 of those goddammed thing I think? I hate bees but we get thousands of pounds of honey so Its worth it. I sell some of it. I brew up some of it into mead which I (sell/trade in minecraft cough cough) along with a small pot still for … (Distilling "water "in minecraft). I collect rainwater off my roof to drink since I have no well or the power to run a well pump. I do have a solar system that I use for computers and such. A backup generator for the winter that drinks about 30 gallons of gas a year.

I do some work on the side for people and also make stuff out of wood. I make chairs and tables out of huge slabs with mortise and tenon construction all by hand with chisels and axes. Its kinda rough looking but you could park a dumptruck on the table and it woudl be fine. I dont sell many but when I do they are like 3kusd.

I raise pigs and chickens. I dol 10 pigs a year on partially forested pasture. I never buy pig feed and dont breed them. I just buy new piglets from another lady up the road every fall. Usually in September. I move them every few days with electric fences. With no grain they grow slower and are leaner but after a year they are usually 200 lbs of fatty baconey goodness. I sell them for about $800 on the hoof. Sometimes I cant sell them all and take a cut but usually they go pretty well. Yay craigslist! I barely keep my chicken flock above replacement levels because the hawks take them all but I get eggs CONSTANTLY and I think my newly crowned rooster (i ate the old one as he didnt keep the hens alive) is going to be a fucking winner… He has a black stripe accross his beak so I name him Hitler and we salute him when he crows. Its pretty fun. I pretty much never leave this place. Only when I need a quick run to the store to get something like cheese, milk, flower, coffee, that I can't make myself.

I have a cellphone bill which is my internet. I have car insurance. I am a (slightly) disabled vet so my medical is trhough the VA but honestly I havent gone in 5 years. They will just try to pill me to death. Not thanks. Private medical insurance is the real killer. 1k/month for my wife and son. That is the murderous expense that I can't avoid. There is no lower cost option. I tried to get the free shit a few times but I am never approved or I fuck up some paperwork or something. I gave up. Its not worth the time. Easier to just go do something. I hope it all explodes and burns down so I can just pay a witch-doctor in moonshine or something but the goddammed economy will never die.

I still file taxes but never owe anything since i have nearly no income that touches the levels that require payments. I met my wife in a huge dumpy city in the south-west. She is a city girl through and through. This was about 10 years ago. She was VERY hesitant to do this.

I told her she would hever have to work again and could stay home with her kids and get rabbits. She quit the next week. Women LOVE rabbits… even though an owl ate them all in the middle of the night. :/

I just put a roof over it. The building is round. There is a central post that is 10 feet from all the walls and " 12 feet high? I forget. The walls are 7 feet high. I got 16' 2x8 dimentional lumber and made 12 beams running radially off the center post to an outside post. This gives me a 4 foot porch all around the building and a slightly sloping roof that is about a 2-12 pitch. It looks like a china-hat sitting on a cylander if that makes sense. see the pic. Mine is bigger with a 12" diam tree truck as a center post. It looks cool and I put a table hanging off of the post as well.

What that means is this. YOU BETTER BE GETTING READY FOR THE FINANICAL RESET. Get some silver. Get some skills. Know your local realestate like the back of your hand. I spent 4 years, every single night with almost no misses tracking every property in an 8 county area. When I saw the place I bought I was on it with an offer about 2 hours after it was posted since I knew the area and the property as soon as I saw the pictures.

You can do this all from mom's basement. I also bought my tools but there was really not a lot to that. Hammers, axes, chisels, a chainsaw, rusty old truck etc. The LAND is the trick. That is all that matters. WIth a pile of good land in a good climate with year-round water and heavy trees you can live forever for free.

OK, so I own 150 acres, get $4,500/YEAR leasing to a farmer (temporary). How are you getting 1K/MONTH?

Walking the perimeter of 150 acres is 6 miles… correct? 150/6 (to solve for 1 mile) means you own 25 acres.

I've seen you post in the past; some of the details just don't add up, but you are giving anons good advice. Owning and working the land is a fantastic goal. 5 acres = Valhalla for most normal people. That's the target amount.

I've been effortposting irl as hard as is humanly possible for nearly a decade. Still not off the grid, but the quality of life is 50X better.

Please don't exaggerate, that's all I ask. I have also been keeping bees for several years. Have 10 hives. Spent $4,200 so far… I let the bees have the honey to overwinter… still have 30% losses. Maybe the Varroa Destructor mite isn't in Oregon (LOL).

>We get thousands of pounds of honey

Infuriating. Internet sensations (fakes) claim 80lb. per hive. I am certified, sub to 2 periodicals, have read The Hive and the Honeybee, The Beekeeper's Bible, etc. (the classics) and am a member of 2 clubs serving 3 counties. 50-70% losses (mainly to mites) this winter. The only people that get thousands of pounds of honey have hundreds (1,000 typically) of hives.

PLEASE ELABORATE ON YOUR ZERO INCOME, WILDLY PROFITABLE HOMESTEAD. I'm all ears. Teach me. I'm obviously doing something wrong.

Post pics and spreadsheets or stop LARPing. If you're off the grid, you have nothing to lose by posting a few pics for me. I'm clearly on the wrong track here.

>if that were true, you wouldnt need expensive HVAC systems.

You don't. Code-wise, the energy code unconstitutionally requires a heating unit scaled to the space and windows scaled in the same way for ventilation and, in some cases, emergency exit.

>many modern homes have major issues with moisture, this whole (((air tight))) construction is overdesign stupidity

No, it's underdesign stupidity. The entire reason there is moisture is because it collects but dooesn't vent; labor doesn't seal the walls properly. Either vent it (old style) or prevent it (new style) or, most logically, depending on context, a bit of both. All the pics you are posting of underlayment siding rot and mold look like what vinyl or composite siding does to wood underlayment with a type1 vapor barrier on the interior walls: collects moisture, holds it, and decays the organic materials. If they had used actual stone on the one pic in >>13377664 they would have no rot, as you can see best in pic related 4. This airtight approach is also why fags use spray insulation fill because it seals and fills and doesn't sink or soak like fiberglass or rockwool. Actual wool is good tho, as long as it stays mostly dry. I use no insulation fill but mechanically and chemically seal my seams to stop airflow. Since insulation is describing only the cavity, it is insulated.

For the record you are correct about timber framing tho good thread. Thanks Anon.

I use bolts for gates and fastening structures to foundations but it seems ikea has the right idea using bolts for usability (assembly and integrity). Timber houses, and ones fastened with bolts, can be disassembled and relocated like the old days but it is so much faster to put up a structure with screws.

Rebar is often installed with rust already on it.

As other anons have mentioned, when the concrete cracks, the rebar rusts.

That rust expands and further cracks the rebar.

Barn and water rights (that I claimed and lease since I have both sides of the stream… flood land is all of a sudden valuable now right? It is when it is the headwaters of a stream and the previous dude was not paying attention when his ex-wife was raping his ass in a divorce. meanwhile I was talking to the water master weekly… Remember, I did my homework on it for years. Water is a big fucking deal and many people don't understand how fucking powerful water rights are. You can change the point of draw for water from anywhere in the watershed… think about that… So GET the water-rights and then perfect them then shop them around. Various public and private entities will buy that water. The last scrap of allodial title left in the US is water and mineral rights. Surface rights are pozzed as fuck.

Land is a quarter mile on a side… Relatively square so about a quarter section. Section is a mile on a side which is 4 miles all the way around. so 640 acres. I have about 1/4 that much. So half a mile on a side. That makes it +-160 acres. Did I fuck that math up? Its all bottomland that is super likely to flood and thankfully I have not flooded yet but tick tock ya know? Much of the reason I could afford it is because it is SUPER wet. I just deal with it.

I mess up the details a bit from time to time to stay safe. My home is not legal. I dont want to be homeless and take environmental fines for an outhouse and stuff like that…

Hives are spread out across the whole property. (why does everyone group them?) many on the periphery… makes me smile to sell honey to a neighbor… I never move them. They are 10 frame boxes (the deep ones) with 2 supers. Each frame of 20ea/box is like 10 lbs. x30 I don't take them all. We rob them kinda when we feel like it throughout the spring and summer. I have never lost a hive to disease. Been runnign them for 5 years. I bought 3 boxes from a guy on CL. Bought bees. Then copied the boxes using cedar and a nailgun. They are ugly and sometimes suck but they work more or less. I put a piece of aluminum roofing flashing from the dump on the top with a staple gun. some have roofing tar stuff. one has a piece of rotting plywood and a rock as a roof. Most everything around here is straight up junkyard wars. Its UGLY. I think a bear attacked one recently because it is smashed and gone. They swarm from time to time. We try to catch them and stick them in a new box. Wife took some bee class at a college online and sticks this shit (forgot what its called) in the hives to make them make a lot of queens then we get them and stick them in nuke boxes. Again, I hate those fucking things but a thousand pounds of honey is not really a lot in good conditions with a bunch of hives over an entire year in zone 8b. selling it is the trick. No one will pay the high-ass prices and I dont want to get fucked with a wholesale price hence the mead… If you only get 1 lb of honey from a hive in a year… !!! whew why bother? that is like what? a pint? not even a full frame? You should be able to get like half a gallon out of a super right? couple times a year?

I don't know/understand how to strip personally identifable info out of a image so sorry… no pics.

I don't have any spreadsheets. I quit my real jobs remember? To be honest the only real trick I have up my sleeve is that I have no bills. this means I can make 1000 bucks and every penny is free and clear. What is killing you is your house., your student loans and Your bills. Your wifes hairdresser, gasoline driving to work over and over and over and over. Income taxes to feed niggers. sales taxes to feed niggers. that shit adds up. Its not perfect by any means. I get hurt A LOT. I do a lot of duct-tape and paper-towl bandaging of wounds. I have 3 missing teeth right now and another one that is going to go this year. I will likely never be able to afford to get them fixed at this point and will look like a meth head in 10 years. I just don't fucking care any more. (im late 30s) I am not really super profitable i just have no expenses so its easy as hell to get like a couple thousand a month extra by doing small stuff. . I have maybe 5k a year extra? if that? I live really cheap. I dont have a lot of stuff that is mandatory for modern living. You still do. That is why you fail.

5 ac is pretty tight. You will not firewood forever on 5 acres even with top conditions. Maybe if you started with huge trees and could cut into them slowly or something. Fuel is a big fucking deal doing this off the grid stuff. Fuel and power is TOUGH. Hot water is TOUGH. In the winter a shower is a fucking luxuary. wife and I share a 10 gallon water heater full of lukewarm water in the winter… OR we make coffee on the coffee maker in the morning instead of on the wood stove… good times. You are all so fuckign soft. That is why things are so fucked up. Not kidding. Go shit in a flooded outhouse and when the filthy shit stained water splashes on your ass… and you dont have the power to run the water heater in the winter … well, you harden up a bit. Then you shove some sticks in that motherfucker so it doesn't splash.

I am trying to dispell the larp tag with some details are real experiences. Had you done this type off stuff you would be laughing and know that I am right. Who the fuck would larp about a flooded hand dug outhouse in a flood plain? really? I couldn't make this shit up.

If I can just convince the Ag Extension that this still keeps the land in current use. The system is kind of Jewed… in that you have to show a certain amount of profit.

I bought a huge chunk of land, the seller was under duress. Without infinite money or 4 generations of experience, it's been a tough road.

I'm not 1000% convinced you're larping. Owls ate all my guinea hens, too. My wife really did side with the owl.

So I switched to chickens and their run is completely screened in, now. Owls attack at night, so I learned to protect them. I thought fencing in the sides would work but the owl plucked them from the top. All solar… ventilation and a gate that closes the coop door automatically at night. Haven't lost a chicken in 5 years to a predator.

Keep spreading the truth. My questions aren't D&C or sliding… I'm being serious. Like I said, you offer sound advice. I'm just not as lucky as you, I guess. 9 years and counting. Doing well, but still a wage-slave.

You know how bad the quality of work has gotten with all the spics. There is opportunity here. Focus on learning as much as you can about your trade and master it. If your foreman or superintendent is old, pick their brains as much as you can. The quality of work was different in the 70s and 80s. They were craftsmen. If you serve them loyally and don't bitch out when they yell at you, you will earn their respect and they will promote you fast.

I started my drywall career picking up scrap. I was always on time and I worked hard. They promoted me to assisting the hangers in less than 2 months. In less than 3 months, I was one of the crew members. 3 months later I was leader of my own group of 3. It will be a year this August when I started drywall and my company wants me to shadow the foreman. I'll do it but I also want to learn how to sand and mud drywall. This part is dirty as shit but I want to master this trade. When work starts to slow down again during the winter, I'd like to pick up painting and master that. One day I will own a drywall installation and painting business.

My advice to anons who want to be promoted fast:

-Be on time and professional. You can have fun but remember to be working while having it. Don't show up hungover or high. If you have a bad attitude then use it to make you work harder!

-Your image is everything. I don't have tattoos, my hair is neat, I speak English like a White man and I dress professionally with a polo tucked into my jeans with a belt. People mistake me for the foreman sometimes.

-Work hard. I jog around the room moving a sheet of drywall. I come early and I make sure my area is clean before we leave. My foreman knows to give me overtime whenever there is any. The other guys complain about having to work overtime and pass on it sometimes but the times they want it, they can't get it. Too bad niggers. More money for me.

-Learn everyday. I watch youtube videos on drywall installation so see if I can learn little tips and tricks. I also pick my foreman's brain. I even helped the caulkers put fire caulking on fire walls a few times. It's boring and tedious but I understand the trade more.

If you faggots take your job seriously, you will be promoted before the old fucks and spics. Save up money and start your own company. I sometimes patch up walls for slum lords and home owners on the weekends when there is no overtime. Cash money baby, I'm not subsidizing no niggers.

Anyone else living the dream in the trades?

Again, this may vary state-by-state. If you own more than 11 acres in my state, and it's not zoned as agricultural… they tax you like you're going to build a subdivision.

You have to do your research. People who own a lot of land near a major city are getting taxed like its all a homesite. 10's of thousands/ year. I pay $900 on 150 ac. The 5 acres (my house sits on) are billed at over 2K.

Good question. Again, it's all Jew-avoidance at this point. I don't want any anons to buy 20 acres near a city and pay 20K in taxes their first year.

They grow what's called water shoots every year, and those can be collected for fuel.

OK. I'll look into Warre's method. My USDA inspector said 100% of US hives suffer from Varroa Mites, though (Feb. 2019). That seems to be the primary issue. I think selective breeding for mites will do the trick inside 10 years, based on what I've read.

They still have mites, but it stops being a problem. You can go with small cell foundation if you really want to stick with foundation, but I like to go as natural as I can. Most foundation is printed with cells that are too big. The bees adapt to this by growing bigger. But that takes longer. The longer until the cell is capped, the more likely a mite is to get in there. And the longer they are in the cell, the more likely they are to die from the mites.


That website has a ton of good info on more natural beekeeping. And you can download an English translation of Warre's book here: https://warre.biobees.com/methods.htm

Owning structures on the land = paying for non Whites to take over your country with property tax.

Just own property and technically RVs. Building things to fit the definition of an RV doesn't mean you have to build it shitty, can build it better than regular home construction, but stick to the RV define so you do pay for the spics and nogs with the big structure tax, only handing over a pittance for the land.

Thats 2 cabins a bathhouse and a kitchen all separate buildings… September until May. I usually dont finish the full 4 but that is the size of my woodshed and I never emptied it.

2 cords a year in Canada for 1600 sq feet… Whats that gas/electric bill look like? 8 months a year fires off of 2 cords. you know that is only 3-4 sticks of wood per day right? or less? 2 cords is an 8x8x4 pile split and stacked. Pretty slim! I bet you got some cool looking sweaters up there in the great white north.

Lets see what we get here…

"Assuming your five room house is around 2000 square feet, you’d probably need something like six cords of wood. Again, it’s better to overestimate than underestimate.

Overall, you’ll need multiple cords of firewood to make it through an entire winter. You might need ten cords or more, or you might only need a few.

Fucking guinea hens. My mom had those goddammed things when I was a kid. She went to visit her dad and me and my dad caught them and ate them before she came home. We acted shocked when she came back. The coyotes must have gottem them… so sad…


We visit a hive maybe 3 times a year… Spring… Go raid them so they won't swarm. leave like half a super of honey. high summer. Take all the frames minus 2-3. Thats the big harvest. September, take all the frames in the top super and leave the entire bottom super slam-full. never bother them again. Weeds grow all over their shit. tree branches fall on them. I never spray anything ever. I never plant anything for them. They work for me. I leave them alone they work and I get their honey but leave them enough so they can work again. I keep them spaced like hundreds of feet minimum. Those fuckers with the monoculture field, the spray and the grouped hives that they move all over the country are what is making bees go extinct. Hell I have wild bees in rotten hollow trees that I find. :/ leave them alone.

Rocket stove, I built 3 of those now. all to heat water. all out of cob. They heat water pretty well in winter but I just got sick of taking hours to make them work. Then it froze and busted the pipe on a really cold night because it had a tiny bend in it and held a bit of water in the copper tube and cracked it. No way to get it out and I gave up. Too much trouble and asspain. I just pussied out and got a little 110v water heater and that works way better.



Coppicing! yeah I know what that is! My trees do quite a bit of that actually. Many will re-shoot from the roots after I cut them. It takes about 5 years until they are wrist thick though. I want to get some of these American Chestnuts going which will coppice like crazy without any troubles with rot. Sadly they are nearly extinct from that blight but I guess the damage is minimal in my area so it may be possible if I can get them going. Anyway its an interesting read and if you are on the west coast it may be something to try for yourself. Also there are differing groups making back-crossed varietials and GMO ones that are blight resistant.

Anyway This has been a fun thread and I hope you all go out there and do this shit. Its hard, its expensive to get the land but once you do it it will change your life for the better and will make you look at the world in a different way. Its worth it if you are truly sick of the world and its bullshit. People will hate you though. I lost all my friends and family over this place as people hated what I built and shit all over me for various things. How I just stay anon because I don't want the RL drama anymore. Go somewhere and get some land if you can . Build a small building on it and see if you can live a month there. Then take a break and try for a whole summer, then take a break and try for a whole year. You will be hooked after a few months and will forget all about all the bullshit you left behind. The houses and paved streets and useless robot people will disgust you after a season. Its like Fight Club… The scene where the guy is in work and his boss accosts him about having blood on his shirt. He says fighting makes all the worlds problems fade away to where you can barely hear them… Thats exactly what this will do for your. It will make all the bullshit you used to care about fade away and you will care more about the state of your chicken coop and water tank than the state of your lawn or how clean your car is. … People will think you lost your mind and its funny as fuck. I highly recommend it. Get a woman on lockdown if you can and if not then bring girls out to your cabin and tell them all about it. Bitches love rabbits and baby chicks. Any woman who will suffer an outhouse to play with baby chicks and rabbits is a keeper. ha ha . Good luck and dont get hurt.

>timber frame VS Reinforced concrete + red brick (RC) frame

another thing you guys should capitalize on…(proper) timber frame is a great method to make a house with but since quality wood and high skilled woodworkers are hard to find you might find use in doing houses with RC frame which is standard in continental Europe and way less labour intensive than timber frame.

These type of houses rarely have any problems, they arent a head turner like a Swiss challet but are meat and potatoes type of build. Ill post a timelapse

Is incredible, however it might have long term health risks similar to asbestos.

I've done informal water tests, and it does in fact wick water, which means that if it does get soaking wet it will dry out if you take care of the water source.

It takes a few days but it eventually dries.

Look up "The Owner-Builder's Guide to Stone Masonry" on LibGen. I took the trouble to scan and upload it to save you youngsters the indignity of a "tiny house".

Start building your wall off a foundation or underground 1/4 the height of your finished wall.

Pick your stones by hand and make sure they are at least somewhat square. Round or wedge-shaped ones will pop out of the wall under pressure. You can use mortar or cement as long as it's softer than the stone you're using. But the wall should stand on its own without mortar - that's just for sealing cracks. If your wall is in contact with the earth, you cannot use mortar or groundwater pressure will build up and topple it.

Insulation goes inside the exterior wall and is covered with sheetrock, wood, or another layer of brick or stone. If you live in the Everglades you may need a vapor barrier. But most condensation is due to sloppy walls with cracks that let in exterior air.

Good thread OP.

All the oldest and strongest buildings in my country are made with massive blocks of granite or limestone, then panelled with wood on the inside for insulation. These are all 150+ years old, built at the height of the British empire. What do you think of the possibility of self-building using just huge blocks of stone?

Would be time consuming but since they're large, you have less to cut. Weather just cannot penetrate or shift it. Maybe you have to be in a 100% earthquake free location though.

1c7b9b  No.13380126


I'd say its possible but ludicrously expensive. Also good luck finding builders who can do it.

Also if its done properly you won't have to worry much about earthquakes unless they're extremely bad.

>All the oldest and strongest buildings in my country are made with massive blocks of granite or limestone, then panelled with wood on the inside for insulation.

brillinat! Ive always wondered when watching British shows with scenes that were filmes inside those big rock buildings, why was the interior wooden? Those wooden interiors are high quality as well - price for them was also sky high I assume.

what I always found interesting, how doesnt the wooden lining swell in those big buildingns (water might travel from outside rock gaps)? How about casual citizen stone buildings, Ive seen that most dont have inner wood lining? are they cold? In Dalmation enitre rock buildings are god tier but its a very different climate.

7f5246  No.13380132


>ludicrously expensive

Almost every building in this country is built that way. There's thousands in every town, so I'd imagine it would be pretty easy to find reclaimed stone. I've seen some old plots for sale that have massive piles of them left over from demolition.

>good luck finding builders who can do it

It's a lot easier than building with brick. I can do it myself.

Are you too much of a stupid nigger to do a little math before you spend time, money, and materials? Its not that hard and if you can't do it, I'm sure you can find a friend to do it for you. With the internet and public libraries, there's no excuse not to make sure the physics checks out on your structure before building. Rot and freeze/thaw can be serious safety, insulation, and structural integrity issues.

7f5246  No.13380149


>why was the interior wooden?

Just for insulation and something to paint. A lot of residential/lower tier ones have simple plasterboard linings on studs. I guess in the past they would have just been stone and plaster and been pretty cold, but they had fireplaces in every room that were on almost 24/7. For the same reason, most of the old castles don't have timber linings apart from in their great halls. But nice rich buildings like the Caledonian and posher houses, from 1750-1900 or so, use panelling.

>how doesn't the wooden lining swell

I honestly don't know, but they do use mortar. Because of the weight, the gap is tiny, maybe literally 1mm or 2mm at most. With a foot thick wall and overhangs, it probably doesn't get too moist inside.

Maybe the wood does swell and it just doesn't matter because the stone is so massive it doesn't move it. Or the stone is so breathable the wood never gets very moist.

I love threads like this. Keep it up!

I also just wanted to dump a vid about how efficient such a simple thing as wood stoves can become if you plan your building tech accordingly.

Up to one tenth of wood used compared to usual stoves.. Rocket stoves!

Basically they're insulated burn chambers to reach temperatures burning the smoke particles and gasses combined with a massive intake thus the rocketry sound it gives. In effect it gives one gasifying burn and further down the heat riser it burns the gas, giving an almost complete burn and temperatures that can melt steel.. Use fire bricks!

another alternative to that shitty plastic might be mud mixed with straw as an additional external layer, Im pretty sure it would perform better in summer as a cooler and in winter it would perform at least as good as rock wool.

another tip, watch old stuff and look how they age, that way youll see just how much forward thinking the desing was. Watch how they accounted for water damage and how easy is to repair the signs of wear. This video by Haduck is ABC of forward thinking >>13377346

Watch restoration videos since time is the best test of quality and non-quality cant be restored (because they didnt plan on it).


>I honestly don't know

they probably had a secret. Its quite a task to do vertical layering in a very moist climate and not create moisture problem between the loading wall and lining wall and that it stays in good condition for 300 years…do you know is there a gap between or had they uses special kind of wood? Anyway that is a fascinating way of building if you find out please inform me.

Almost every building in your country was built that way when it was common to do so. You'll find fucktons of buildings like that throughout the UK, whole villages and towns even.

But barely anyone does it anymore due to costs.

What this means is that those costs are now much higher.

Getting the stuff quarried and shipped to you is gonna be a nightmare because it will all need to be done specifically for you. Theres no real infrastructure or existing supply chains to absorb some of that cost.

Course I don't know what country you're in. So maybe that infrastructure exists there. But I doubt it. Brick infrastructure at best.

Now as for lots with old stone on them. Yeah you can use that but it'll never be enough. You think it's like a jigsaw for a house but it ain't. Bits will have been thrown in a skip and you won't know exactly what the original house looked like plus key structural stones have been broken up.

Which brings us to another issue. Doing this properly isn't as easy as laying blocks on top of each other. You need to do it properly to keep the load properly balanced and ensure proper compression force distribution. It's not a game for amateurs.

That lets us segue into the next major problem. There are not many people with the skills to properly do this. At any level. From the gruntwork to the coordination/planning. I've heard of one construction crew in the UK who do it on the regular but they're booked years in advance.

Many cons.

They tend to have serious damp problems and they run afoul of legal requirements in a number of nations where building standards just aren't designed to accomodate them.

Also expensive to make.

It's the damp that is the main issue though. Since you will typically use wood for the frame the weird way the damp and air stratify will start to degrade the upper part of the dome pretty quickly. Now proper venting at the top of the dome can fix that, one design slaps a cupola on the top of the dome and that supposedly fixes it.

The second worst problem is materials. You have to use plastics. Lots of them and leave them exposed to direct sunlight and rain. We all know why this is bad.

Finally divvyin up the space inside them is a bit messy. Never really works out as intended.

No. It is a stone floor, timber frame with hempcrete fill and tile roof. Don't insulate under the floor, insulate around the walls. All that dirt under your house is free thermal mass. There's no excuse for a tiny shack to burn that much wood, that's 100 million BTUs. He's either got the worst shack in history or he is getting 10-20% efficiency from his wood.

The aesthetics are butchered because architecture schools teach young architects that it is part and parcel of their proffession to use only the most modern and "high quality" materials.

you bet!

For the record. While a ceramic/clay shingle/shake/tile roof is fireproof from the outside, it will collapse with a fire on the inside. Metal is best, even as a tray for Norse grass roofs, and comes in shapes like Spanish and Roman cermic tiles but is less weight, costs less, can be made from recycled materials and recycled after use, and is easier install. Good for tiny houses that need less weight and may be towed through a fire during escape. If you are doing the "cementing" Gaudí style with limestone then it's probably okay., but the rest should be slate and old growth wood for authenticity.

Roofing Weights:

For context, the typical US roof (asphalt shingles) is ~200lbs/100sqft (10'x10'). A metal roof would be a quarter to half of that, depending on the material (steel, copper, etc..) and gauge (thickness); ~50lbs/sqft.

>They either last as long as the building but are often the reason the building itself has to be demolished.

I havent seem much problems with concrete roofs, but your point stands, its hard to replace it, they are usually overengeneered on smaller houses so they have plenty of loading…in worst case scenario, how hard would it be to replace just the concrete roof after 50 years?


> While a ceramic/clay shingle/shake/tile roof is fireproof from the outside, it will collapse with a fire on the inside.

prime advantage is that it doesnt rust with time and arguably more waterproof, but metal roof is still a great choice especially when you count in the extreme differences in weight and easy instally if its a gable roof.

And resistant to wind. Metal sheets with fasteners are strong but can leak if the gromets fail and metal shingles blow off in heavy winds but are not reliant on eals but material overlaps and leak less to not at all. I have a wood lumber roof (modern norse) with a steel metal tray with side drains and 2" walls with soil holding barley grass on my house (old norse). Took some time and custom fabrication of the trays but it fucking works and looks great. The grass will catch on fire but the roof is metal sheeted and safe with an insulated gap for temperature control so as not to ignite the lumber roof.

There is a difference between 'Euclidean' and 'Land-use' zoning. Land-use zoning can address all issues and there is no need for Euclidian zoning.


The 'r' means residential. This is only for the main use. You can use it how you want so long as primary use is living. You can change this zoning with 'conditional' permits.

The 35 means one dwelling unit for every 35 acres of land. This is because the secondary use is agriculture. It can be zoned dual res/ag but it doesn't have to be because of

Yes, "temporary". If you put steel in concrete, you make it a fragile temporary material. Concrete on its own will last centuries, rebar filled concrete won't make it a single century.


Ceramic porosity depends on the clay used and the firing done. If tile works fine in northern Scandinavia, I think you can relax.

concrete on its own wont last centuries - its porous for one and chemically based (modern concrete) so it cracks with long sun exposure etc, rock masonry will last for centuries or millenias.

regarding RC, many floors on older buildings Ive seen IRL are RC and are close to 100, but RC when exposed is far less durable than people think if that is what you tried to say

100 is a good number for RC, its usually floors that can last that long, but exposed RC degrades "quickly"

Just don't build this


Seriously though, I'd rather avoid using OSB because it's really shitty. It won't last long. Sure, you won't live in it, but that doesn't mean you don't want the shed to last several years.

Start with a good foundation to avoid the shed sinking (make a big hole, pour broken bricks or gravel, put a concrete wire mesh, and pour concrete over it). You then make a timber frame (1st pic) which isn't really that hard and shouldn't be as complicated as the one in the pic. You also make the floor frame (second pic). Over the floor frame you nail the wooden boards that are going to act as the floor. Plywood is probably fine for a shed.

For the walls you can try several things. You can either nail wooden boards (I'd avoid OSB just because it's really low quality, but other types of wood are fine) or, if you want to be a little bit fancier, try doing wattle and daub, which is a really easy technique that doesn't require much technical knowledge and looks great, but it's more time consuming (embed related). For the roof just do a metal roof which is probably the easiest.

Although if you have absolutely no experience in carpentry maybe try with a smaller project like building garden beds, a bird box, or things like that.

Can't tell you much about books since the only one I've read is one about Japanese joinery but other than that I learned from trial and error.

In classical Roman religion, a genius loci (plural genii locorum) was the protective spirit of a place. It was often depicted in religious iconography as a figure holding attributes such as a cornucopia, patera (libation bowl) or snake. Many Roman altars found throughout the Western Roman Empire were dedicated to a particular genius loci. The Roman imperial cults of the Emperor and the imperial house developed in part in connections with the sacrifices made by neighborhood associations

Alexander Pope made the Genius Loci an important principle in garden and landscape design with the following lines from Epistle IV, to Richard Boyle, Earl of Burlington:

Consult the genius of the place in all;

That tells the waters to rise, or fall;

Or helps th' ambitious hill the heav'ns to scale,

Or scoops in circling theatres the vale;

Calls in the country, catches opening glades,

Joins willing woods, and varies shades from shades,

Now breaks, or now directs, th' intending lines;

Paints as you plant, and, as you work, designs.

>Meanwhile, however, a lot of damage has been done. While a renewed interest in circulating fans could save large amounts of energy when cooling buildings, there are limits to what can be achieved because the widespread use of AC has had a profound influence on architecture. Before the advent of air-conditioning, buildings in hot climates were designed in such a way that they were comfortable during summer months without the use of energy. They encouraged natural ventilation by, among other things, large porches, high ceilings, roof vents, sash windows, ventilation shafts, transoms over interior doors, and courtyards. Some houses were even built on stilts to allow for more air circulation. 16911

>Traditional buildings in hot climates kept solar radiation out by using heavy construction materials, big eaves, reflective tin roofs, and growing shade trees around the house. Air conditioning did away with all these building elements and stimulated the use of lighter and cheaper building materials. Office blocks with H, T, and L-shaped footprints, which facilitated cross-ventilation, were replaced by massive, square blocks with very deep floor plans. Completely new building types emerged, such as office towers with fully glazed facades or enclosed shopping centres, which would be simply uninhabitable without air-conditioning because of the greenhouse effect. While fans could somewhat lower the energy use of air-conditioning in such buildings, energy consumption would remain very high.

You don't need to, do some basic research. Everything in that scam video shows it is bullshit. Of course his wooden walls did good in a burn test, wooden walls always do good in burn tests. He is simply lying about how they didn't want to test it. There's hundreds of published results of solid wood walls doing just as well, and none of them are magic "mood wood". Every special property he tries to claim is unique to "moon wood" is a property of ordinary fucking wood.


>concrete on its own wont last centuries

Yeah, those concrete buildings that are over 2000 years old certainly prove you right. Retard.

>its porous for one and chemically based (modern concrete)

What kind of idiotic non-statement is "chemically based"? Everything is chemically based you fucking moron.

>is water level rising according to moon changes a scam as well?

Are tacos a scam as well? Stop with the non-sequitur idiocy and make an argument if you think the stupid hippy scam is legit. If it were legit, why does he have to lie about normal wood and say it is shit and rots instantly and normal solid wood walls burn up in minutes? He is just cashing in on people's complete and total ignorance of normal wood, since his customer base is entirely people who grew up in houses made of glue.

I'm thinking right now about building something like house shown on vid rel. It has recently started to become more popular in central Europe. I'd like to build something like that, but with additional attic of the same size (35m^2).

This is one of very few options for me to get a home without getting into many years of debt slavery to a jew. However most people do it using OSB which this thread convinced me not to use so i'm thinking whether it's possible to build similar, cheap small house which will last at least my lifetime without problems. Changing OSB for plywood prob wont be enough so i wonder what else need to be improved?

How to choose correct materials of such kind of house? How to insulate it? Condom wraps seems to suck. Would building this kind of house with 35 m^2 (~375 square feet) bottom floor and 35m^2 attic be much cheaper than let's say 50m^2(~540 square feet) bottom floor and 50m^2 attic?

No tornados and floods here at least so it should be doable.

exept that is Roman concrete and today we use "Portland" cement which is completly different, not that you would understand that or how the wood grain changes acording to water it has…your total stupidity reminds me of specific anon…tell me are you the guy from Florida that bragged about building a house in the last thread?

Which is concrete. It is right in the name and everything.

>today we use "Portland" cement which is completly different

So you can go right ahead and explain how portland cement makes concrete that doesn't last, but every other cement ever in history makes concrete that lasts. Or you could quit being a fucking retard and realize the cement used isn't the problem.

>how the wood grain changes acording to water it has

It doesn't. It also doesn't change how long it takes to burn. And you would know this if you took the two seconds to do basic research and see solid wood walls always exceed every fire test in existence. It doesn't matter what the fucking moon is.

ZIP board, a type of plywood, from Advantech is some pretty durable shit. It’ll last for years without any additional siding over it, so you don’t have to use Tyvek housewrap. But the sheets, and the ZIP tape that goes with are pretty pricey.

Your build should look something like links related:

https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-and-plank (Bohlenständerbau)

https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Timber_framing (Ständerbauweise, Firstständerhaus, Gefügebauweise, Geschossbauweise, Rähmbauweise, Stockwerksbauweise)


Or mix it with log frame:

https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Upper_Lusatian_house (Umgebindehaus)


See >>13379751 for infos on sheeting.

Use thin lumber to "sheet" your frame if you do a modern platform frame (2x4@16 or 2x6@24) with insulation cavity. If you do the material layering correctly it will block all air draft. Link related:


>without problems

You can get plywood with natural non-toxic glues if you choose plywood.

>what else need to be improved

Airflow is more imprtant than anything. In a 100-square foot wall, one cup of water can diffuse through untreated drywall (without a vapor barrier) in a year but 50 cups of water can enter through a 1/2-inch diameter round hole. You do not need to worry about diffusion through materials like you do actual holes into your walls.

>How to insulate it

Insulation is defined as the cavity that equalizes temperature, in a log house there is no "insulation" in this sense. In a modern house the cavity exists and is intended to be filled with some sort of insulation "fill". Actual wool, not rockwool, from sheeps is the best and most resistant to mold and gravity, is the least toxic and harmful to the world, and costs the most. Worth it. Or just go with no insulation fill.

>Condom wraps seems to suck

See >>13377675 for info on barriers.


Larger house costs more in materials and in heating.

>no tornados or floods

any dutch anons familiar with this type of "wall over roof" build?

Are there any functional reason for basically compromising structural stability of the wall and putting the roof inside? Was it to create less shade on the streets?

I know that its a solid build and walls dont just collapse to the street but it creates a water damage risk…does this type of build have any specific problems? thanks!

What is an OP approved way to insulate my cuckshed? Modern materials offgas and apparently trap too much moisture, so what is the alternative? More importantly, what is the affordable, non labor intensibe alternative?

6b72e3  No.13420680


straw and mud mix is an excellent choice (cob or adobe wall basically), another simple solution is putting plastic bags between the wall instead of wool (but high risk of flamability!), you can use leftover lamb wool between walls, leftover wood (without glue offcourse) etc., there are so many non toxic solutions, its best to stick to already tested ones like adobe/cob, but you can go to more extravagant ones if the risk is calculated

They are simple facade. The western style buildings in the US are influenced by these and other Dutch styles (reinterpreted Roman styles), as are most farm houses and barns.


You can extend the timbers into the bricks though.

>reinforced concrete?

Concrete does a poor job at moving water.

It absorbs and holds water instead of wicking it like terracotta, wood, earth, or even plaster.

You would ideally want an impermeable outer sheath like tile, stone, or metal followed by a less permeable surface like tar paper, followed by a wicking surface like wood.

The reason is that you want to create a gradient which allows minor leaks and man-made humidity to quickly dry by increasing the surface area of the trapped water.

And what do you know, you've made a traditional roof.

Concrete is pretty shit if you want something either water tight, or good at wicking.

If you read through this thread, there's an anon who points out how shitty concrete mortar is, although for different reasons.

>how about slate over a thin sheet of reinforced concrete?

that might work, Ive seen plenty of RC roofs with Terracota tiles over it and it works very well, but be aware of significantly bigger mass that needs stronger foundations and beefier structure all together >>13381928


>Concrete does a poor job at moving water.

he said hell cover the concrete with slate, not put concrete as outer layer - that way hell basically have a concrete loading for roof that hell cover which is a solid option.

other anon mentioned that its very hard to replace it unlike wood beam for roof loading but problems of destroyed RC roof loading from moisture only come after 60-100 years if you use proper cover like terracota or steel

>You would ideally want an impermeable outer sheath like tile, stone, or metal followed by a less permeable surface like tar paper, followed by a wicking surface like wood.

how needed is the tar layer between the wicking layer surface (metal, terra, slate, shingles…) and roof loading system (wood beams, steel beams, RC). Ive seen that some people put "wicking layers" directly only loading without tar and it creates no problems, tar layer is a must in the basement wall. Im talking about atticks that are the living spaces

>What are vented cavities

>what are vapour barriers

>what is ventilation

>what is reinforced concrete

The only reason old constructions were "ventilated" was because the technology of the time could not completely seal the house and the natural ventilation occurred. This was not something that anyone thought of, because it was never a thing until modern building started to happen. What you had though was people huddling in one central room of the house every winter night because it was so cold and because heating was so inefficient.

If properly built and maintained, modern construction house can last a century or so.

You may idealize old construction, but it was not perfect. Most old buildings being lived in today have some sort of insulation added on to them, and every space is being refurbished to improve conditions (at least here in Europe).

Material-wise, most old construction was not as sturdy as you imagine either, with lack of consistent material control, general expense and lack of skilled builders. Majority of old remaining construction is in big public buildings or private residences and those are usually built to last on purpose.
