Today one of our most popular guests of all time has returned for an encore performance. According to a poll in the TSP forum you guys most wanted Paul to return next to go more in depth about wofati eco buildings.
While the main topic of today’s show is going to be wofati building there have been a ton of hugelkultur questions as well so we will open with a few of them.
Many of the details shared about the wofati structure are highly visual and referencing Paul’s Article titled “wofati eco building” will be of great help. Also highly recommended is Mike Oehler’s book, The 50 Dollar and Up Underground House.
The wofati building is essentially a modified and improved version of Mike Oehler’s design (approved of by Mike himself) which improves the overall thermal mass, keeps the structure 100% dry, increases the flow of light into the structure and offers several other advantages.
Join us today as we discuss…
