Building a Carbon Reducing Passive – Plus House | Sustainable buildings for a sustainable future
EcoCrafting is a new start-up company specializing in environmentally friendly and future-oriented solutions in residential construction.
When our company is up and running, our vision is to build houses in developing countries. We intend on teaching individuals in these countries to build their own houses using environmentally-friendly, locally grown resources. This will create workplaces, housing, growth, and prosperity.
We are starting a pilot project with “Biocrete” a biological concrete that has yet to be used in Norway. In today’s construction industry, there’s a growing need for energy efficient buildings. However, this often comes at the expense of price and indoor climate. Poor air quality indoors has detrimental effects on both our physical and cognitive health– It’s been proven by researchers at top universities such as Stanford, Harvard, and Yale!
Why pay hundreds of thousands of Euros (NOK) for a house that is toxic for you and your family’s health? The current construction method uses materials that aren’t environmentally friendly, or even “people” friendly, for that matter. This is something we NEED to change!
Our wall system brings competing u-values and a superior indoor heating/cooling system, ensuring that the temperature of your home is regulated at a fraction of the cost of a “regular” house. It’s also fire resistant, pest resistant, mould resistant, earthquake resistant and has great acoustic insulation!
Our homes will compete with traditional construction prices while utilizing environmentally friendly materials. The finished construction will have a negative carbon footprint– This is because Biocrete traps and consumes CO2 in the atmosphere. In fact, the CO2 helps the Biocrete become stronger and solidified, making your new home as environmentally resistant as it is friendly!
These modern homes will be elegantly designed with smart, user-friendly technology–A true home of the future! It will produce clean energy that the owner can sell to their neighbors, or better yet, to the community. Imagine making a profit while saving the planet!
Please support our project and help us steer the construction industry into a more sustainable, healthy and environmentally friendly direction. Change starts small, but we hope that someday, we’ll be able to provide EcoCrafted homes to millions of people.
