main building plan

Project: Mongeal Mapu - Tierra para la Vida - Land for Life

Posted by Norman Joseph Smith almost 6 years ago

this is a picture of the suggested layout of the hall/office/kitchen/bathroom

The land donator has asked me to compile necessary information for the architect to work on a design. I made a four page document with pictures and this is the plan of the main building.

The hall is multifunctional: dining, sleeping, meditating, study, meeting, (parties?). There are no religious icons or statues.

There would be a door from outside and the greenhouse to the mud room, then to the office. There would be a door from the greenhouse to the bathroom/s and kitchen, then to the hall. There would be a door from the office to the shaded patio and from the hall to the glasshouse. There would be a door from outside to the greenhouse and another from outside to the glasshouse. There would not be a door from the office to the hall. So each room would have two doors except the mud room which would have three.

The kitchen should have a natural refrigerator (cooling cupboard) on the southern wall: there will be a vent from underground, which opens at the base of a cupboard. The vent should come from the gravel floor in the greenhouse. Another solar chimney (black metal pipe) goes in the roof at the top of the cooling cupboard in the kitchen. It would be higher so it can get afternoon sun.

We need to have an overflow for water under the gravel in the greenhouse, so it does not block the vent to the kitchen natural refrigerator. The cupboard should have wire draws and a good door and seal on the door, or a curtain, to keep the cool in and the heat of the kitchen out. Fruit and vegetables (and eggs and dairy) could be stored there for cooking.

We could have more storage area for food of about one meter wide along the east side, under the floor. It would not matter if this area was damp/wet in winter, but since it is on a slope, it would not get waterlogged. We need to store more food for winter. Cold winter air from outside would not get in there, except when we rarely went in to bring things out. Also bad meditators could be locked up there. ;-)

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

pri_teacher

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
