Day 9, 117 total person hours worked by Noble and I on our 15ish by 15ish foot bathroom/stairway/mini-office space built outta papercrete and recycled glass bottles.
Every morning I go over to the "Famous Burro" Restaurant and Gage Hotel to get their left over booze bottles and every morning Noble mixes up our papercrete mortar. It's recycled paper (soaked in water overnight) and pozzolan clay and sand and perlite (volcanic rock or something or other) and Portland cement.. all mixed together and then hoisted up by hand from ground floor to second floor by our 122 pulls on a not-so easy pulley system--at the end of the project we'll take a picture of my enormous pipes.
