Corrugated Metal for Bond Beams and Wall Bracing — 3 Comments

  1. One thing your forgetting is the incredible strength of bamboo. Call Earth advocates research center/farm and talk to Adam. He will teach you about building with bamboo and how it has been successfully used to replace rebar in engineering tests with concrete and other building methods. Thanks.

    • We know about bamboo. Trouble is, there’s very little available in Haiti from what we’ve heard. Also, it would be very difficult if not impossible to drive it down through the bags as we’re planning. External pinning with bamboo lined up on opposites sides of walls and tied together through the wall is one possibility.
