Mother Earth News Magazine Articles: Oldies But Goodies — 9 Comments

  1. Trying to find an article I read in my dads mother earth magazine around the early 80s. I believe it was about constructing a ” hyrdraulic water ram” using either abs or pvc pipe and fittings. Anyone remember this article, and where I might find it? thank you. Fred

    • Have you tried searching their site? Make sure you spell it correctly. If you can’t find it there, the info is easy to find elsewhere on the Internet.

    • Thanks. We covered that about 1-2 years ago. I send a lot of people to their website and will include them in an upcoming blog post on artisan homes.

  2. I never found the article I was originally looking for. (But along the way I realized all these old articles would make a good blog post.)

    Does anyone remember the article about building ferrocement dome sections one at a time and then putting them together later? I can’t remember where I read about this.

    • But Carroll, it’s easier to just buy everything new down at the building supply center. Oh wait. That cost a sh*t load of money. So you’re right. Most of us will have to figure out different ways of doing things by improvising, adapting and overcoming.
