Build a Better Home and Future

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Durisol Build for  photo durisol-build_zps1954ebef.jpg. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you ever considered skipping the traditional wood house in favor of a concrete home? I have and after going to school and learning more about this process as well as a neighboor building their home this way. I belive this is the way we all need to build.

Durisol Build

The blocks like the ones from Durisol Build are made in a way that it is envornomentally safe and gets your home or commercail building made in a way that helps you and the environment. Being there is really an extra layer of insulation with these bricks. You can sometimes save money on buying insulation and other products. This is the case with my neighboor of course it may be different for you.

I'm sure you have seen the above as you have been driving around. It may not be this exact building, but commerical buildings are being built this way already, now you can also think about doing this for your home.

One reasion I love Foundations Go Together Quickly With Dursiol ICF Wall Forming Systems. photo insulated-concrete-forms_zps3a9758ab.jpg products is not only are they environmentally safe, but they are made of recycled waste wood, meaning the making of them is using up a product that would normally be wasted and thrown out. Also It can be molded into any shape, that means you can do rounded rooms if you would like! How cool would that be?

As you can see above they are well contructed. Another benifit of using this type of building product is that it is fireproof up to 1100 degrees. When I was in school this was a new thing for homes, but more and more people are seeing that they can really benifit from this type of contruction. As not only can it save you money when you build, but because it's so well insulated you can save alot of money on your heating and cooling bills!

How does this actually work?

Well you build this up just like you would a lego wall. Rebar and an aditional horizontal support is added into the mix for streangth and then concreate is poured between the spaces of the bricks. This makes an extreamly strong wall that is insulated and ready for drywall! It's really that simple!

Would this be something you could consider for your home?

Merry Christmas: Christmas Trees from Bloggers

I decided this year to ask a few bloggers to help me out with my holiday post by sending me pictures of their Christmas trees. A couple responded and here they are! Mine is the last one, though I can’t take credit for decorating it, my mom did that.

The first tree is from Summer at Summerthat
