Bamboo Modular House Project

Postby tamsin » Tue Mar 10, 2009 12:43 pm

I'm currently working on modular housing utilising the abundant bamboo here.

No problems with having panels made, but need to source 'connectors' for the various components (walls/ceilings etc) which must of course be as strong and as unobtrusive to the overall design as possible.

Could anyone please help? Thankyou.

There are several methods to connect the bamboos together; like using various joinery techniques with twines, ropes, vines and elastic bonds; thanks.
