Time lapse of home constructed start to finish

A time lapse project of a custom home built by Weaver Homes -- a division of Weaver Companies, Inc. Original footage was captured at 1 photo every 30 seconds over a 6 month period resulting in 45 days of capture and over 70,000 photos. Images we edited in Adobe Lightroom 3, combined in Quicktime Pro at 30 frames/sec and compiled in iMovie 11. Most clips were then sped up by 200-400% to produce this short movie. Enjoy!

Couple Builds Energy Efficient Passive Solar Home - Green Building

In this video we meet Casey & Natasha, a conscious couple who built a passive solar home near Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. In addition to orienting their house to face south, they installed overhangs that block the sun to keep it cool during summer months and allow the sun to enter and heat the house during winter months. They also installed a 10 kW solar system that sells clean electricity back to the grid through Ontario's MicroFIT Program and the revenue helps cover their own utility bills. The house was built to Passive House standards and is currently pending certification. You can learn more about Passive House here: The exterior walls of this house are 20" thick and are insulated using Roxul insulation which is made locally, better for the environment, can get wet, and has less flame retardants than traditional fiberglass insulation, which means cleaner air quality in the home. To maximize the energy efficiency of their home, they installed triple glazed windows, a drain water heat recovery system, an air source heat pump water heater, and a bioethanol fireplace. They also chose sustainable alternatives like concrete countertops instead of granite, and reclaimed pine flooring instead of using new wood. Last but not least, they designed their house to be completely fossil fuel-free which means that they don't use any fossil fuels to power or heat their home. Casey & Natasha are building a conscious group of companies to align their work life with their personal values. Their companies include The Conscious Builder, the Conscious Living podcast and the Conscious Store (coming soon!). Thanks for watching!

The Future Of Residential Housing - Zero Energy Housing

The concept of insulated panels has previously been used in commercial building projects only. Bondor has now developed an insulated panel InsulWall® specifically for residential applications. Together with the already popular roofing product SolarSpan®, InsulWall® is expected to revolutionise Australian housing design and construction. Australia's new 6-Star Energy Efficiency requirement for new homes will demand significant advancements in the choice of materials for Australian residential construction practices. Insulated Construction Australia will demonstrate how uncomplicated the system can be to build an aesthetically pleasing home that meets and exceeds thermal performance requirements. Using technology that enables people to save on future energy bills by providing an affordable energy efficient family home of the future which requires significantly less construction time.

Modern Home Construction Technique

This video shows the simple animation of modern style of construction of houses in various stages like excavation work, foundation work, fixing of trusses, etc. Many Thanks to The Animation Annex for creating this informative video.

In NSR Green Woods, we stand for Self-Sustainability and Eco-Friendliness in all our construction materials, methods, services etc. This is one of the unique construction we proposed and the following are some of the highlights :

1. Used Scrapped stones from local stone quarries with the help of semi skilled workers by trimming them to the shape which can be reused for construction as base material of the building instead of bricks, concrete blocks.
2. Minimalist Approach - No Cladding, No Tiles, Making the best use of the base material, here in the case, stone as finial finishes.
3. Lime in place of Cement in Plasters- Lime has lot of advantages in keeping the environment better by absorbing the CO2 from air.
4. Lime in place of Emulsions as Paints and Primers : We all know due to high VoC, most of the Emulsions releases Toxins into the Environment. WE have Healthy Living Spaces by using Lime Primers and Paints.
5. Water Based Herbal Polishes instead of Melamine / PU Coatings for Wood : PU and Melamine are very dangarous to the Environment by releasing lot of Toxins. We have Clean and Healthy Breathable Houses, by adopting the herbal and water based alternatives.
6. Solar Power : For all equipment like Fridge, Washing Machine, Dish Washer, Heat Pump (instead of Geysers), Pressure Pump, all Lighting Circuits, everything runs of Solar Power.
7. Solar Water Heating : Solar Water Heaters and supported with Heat Pumps (Which are highly Energy Efficient than Geysers) to provide 24x7 hot water without compromising on the life style.
8. Grey Water Management Locally in the Site : To best use all the water reused for Kitchen Garden with in the Plot area.
9. Rain Water Reuse : Recycling of the Terrace Rain Water to Sump Tank through Centrifugal Filter.
10. Stabilized Mud Blocks : To have breathable Walls and clean Environment.
11. Having Own Organic Kitchen Gardens supported with Drip Irrigation.
