we are organising two workshops (introduction Workshop and advanced
workshop) ³Modern construction and renovation with strawbales² from
September, 15th to 22nd 2006. These event will take place at the site of the
³Center for Appropriate Technology in Böheimkirchen² (Lower Austria, 40km
east from Vienna) right beside the internationally awarded ³S-HOUSE².
The aim is to demonstrate self building technologies by means of renovating
an old barn. Straw bale building and passive house standard combined will be
shown. The wooden construction as well as the old fasade will be kept and a
straw bale insulation added.
This workshop will include both theoretical and practical parts. The
workshops will be guided by Robert Wimmer (A), Hannes Hohensinner(A) and
Werner Schmidt (CH).
These workshops targets on self builders as well as architecture, craftsmen
