To make a rondaval, traditional house, made from wooden poles cut from trees and
assembled with mud a person will cut down around 30 trees. This house will only be good
for around three years and they will have to be replaced due to rot etc.
This is causing a major problem throughout the world by impacting on the environment,
wild life and global warming by cutting down all the trees with no other choice to have a
roof over their heads.
If this same person was to build his house out of blocks this would eradicate the destruction
on the environment by this person not needing to cut down the trees.
Disadvantages of having a wooden house:
• Cutting down trees has a huge impact on the environment
• Having to rebuild within 3 to 4 years due to weather erosion, wood rot etc
• Fire hazard
Advantages of building a house with blocks:
• A blockhouse is durable for a life span of approximately 40 years
• Secure, weather resistant and safe
• Assisting with ongoing climate change
• Saving the environment
• Removing the river sand from silted rivers
• Saving the wildlife, in particular the bird life
|Housing Project - Facts
To make a basic house out of block moulds you would need:
• A block mould
• 6 bags of cement
• Water FREE from the rivers
• River sand FREE from the rivers
With one block mould and two people you can make 210 blocks per day using 6 pockets cement.
210 blocks can build the same house that uses 30 trees. If two people can save 30 trees in
one day then in 22 working days they can save 660 trees.
The same two people can make 4620 blocks working 22 days a month and the amount of sand taken from
our silted rivers would be 36 960 kg's, enabling the rivers to flow properly helping the aquatic life.
In one year 264 houses could be built from
the blocks saving 7920 trees and clearing 44 tons of sand from the rivers.
With these statistics we now know why we have global warming and ozone problems. Solution,
invest / donate 1 block machine, R250 to our world green protection scheme.
