In the new year of 2020 Georgia Adobe™ will offer the earliest of our building seminars yet, held at our Commerce, Georgia facility.

The days for the class are scheduled for *Jan. 27 , 28, 29, 30, 2020

For those interested in learning here are some Interesting Facts About Georgia Adobe Homes™ from an article I wrote a good while back.

A DIY home, built Off Grid from natural materials and then living a simpler life, that’s free from utility bills and the modern homes cost to build or maintain ?
If the above life is your desire, I can not stress enough that you consider what you will build, as that this the single most important element in you receiving, a successful and a possible off grid life or not !
I speak as the owner of a company that has both designed and built conventional and alternative materials and methods structures, of several kinds. What I have not built, I have spent great amounts of time (over 50+ years now) studying and researching the data.
As such, I can write from what I know and I have found that the Georgia Adobe™ Stylized structure, is the best methodology and most cost affordable home, available to the widest group of people on planet Earth ! I understand how wide that may sound, but for off grid, it is the basis for ease and success.
Why ?
It's in the buildings very make up and design causing the structure to simply function as a piece of equipment would and the structure reacts in relation to the needs of the inhabitants providing everything necessary to live a comfortable life. Those necessaries can be characterized as being not only built from nearly Free Natural Materials and paid for the day you move in, but the structure provides :
Power and Gas
Food and
Disposal on site of all liquid effluents
What’s left to be desired, is minimal at best.
The Georgia Adobe Home™ requires vastly less energy to operate, than any conventional structure can, because of a combination of it being Earth sheltered and passively solar also with passive ventilation allowing one to change at will the buildings “Humi-temp” = humidity and temperature. Just these three elements are enough to wipe out 45% of the structures basic energy demands, right off the power bill ( as according to a DOE report, on how much a conventional home uses, of total energy yearly, just for HVAC) . Georgia Adobe’s™ structures can maintain 58 degrees inside year round as the low, due to the Earth's release of embodied energy and our structures capture energy from the sun in the structures walls and floors plus with our ventilation designs, ( as designed into the structure ) keeping humidity and excessive temperatures lowered and even potential radon naturally released out. Passive solar is then, by the resident’s easily adjusted to a high no more than 20 degrees under the outside high, and averages over 24 hours is normally around 71 degrees at about 42 inches off the floor as the IBC recommends.
Conventional structures can't even get close to these numbers, even with the best of so called “LEED Designs” ! Georgia Adobe™ Is Built Beyond LEED standards !
Just as it's in the design, for the Georgia Adobe structure to be built to heat and cool itself, it’s also designed to make its own water,( by capturing rainwater, storing then triple filtering it you get fresh water for all that buildings uses) options allow the building to help produce liquid and gas fuel for many of the household needs ( often including transportation needs and generator operations) ; thereby a Georgia Adobe™ can produce its own power from several sources including solar, wind, geothermal, generator driven by conventional and alternative fuels, including, but not limited to woodgas, methane, alcohol fueled, compost fueled and more ).
The Superstructure is not only built from up to 80% recycled and fully insulated natural and local materials (Rammed Earth for the thermal mass and energy storage), just to start with and add to this the embodied energy materials which can be used ( thus recycled and natural local and often free building products), plus it also recycles 2/3 the fresh water, into what's called greywater, thereby allowing less total demand upon any captured filtered rainwater and therefore the building can operate about anywhere people normally live, and on as little as 8 inches a year, of total rainfall, and still have a fully functioning home.
Add the ability of food production inside (and outside) the building, to all this and our DIY = do it yourself construction methodologies that even 10 year old kids can learn and mimic ( I did it myself back then ! ) allows much less skilled ( and expensive ) construction workers to produce superior results, with vastly less expense passed on to the DIYer , which is often reported by our clients as from 5% to 25% of conventional construction cost, when built as we design it, if the government is not in their way !
Perhaps one of the best features little known facts about a Georgia Adobe Home™ is that the outer face or front facade can be designed so as to blend into any neighborhood, thereby not attracting any undesirable publicity or “lookiloos” dropping by to see what's going on, because it can look like about every other homes façade, with openings on all sides being possible too.
There's so much more, but I will stop there and if you have any questions, look over our web site and by phone just contact me and "ASAP" ~ I will reply. When you are ready to build that new home, we are here ready to teach or build for you when possible, acting as your new friend, doing everything we can to be of service to your project !
Please note, we will not trade on your good name, fame or notoriety as we keep all client info ( yes including new clients information too ) as totally confidential, to protect both the innocent and the guilty alike.
No Matter Which Way You Go, Cheers To Your New Home And Your New Life Of Freedom To Come !
