Wind isn't a problem here, this design allows it to blow straight thru. Rarely we get decent wind and rain, these are the times when you really need more enclosed areas.

If I was to build something new the main changes I'd make is raising it off the ground 1m or just having a larger second floor for the living area.

I think open areas are really neglected here, they are cheap and often the best place to be.

Hi have you had any more interest in bamboo buildings? got any more plans up your sleeves?
I am thinking of making a little hut on the land and possibly and upper bamboo guesthouse to a concrete garage, do you have any pics of joins and connections from the house that would be of interest? many thanks!

I've been studying this bamboo a bit lately.
Visited this place under construction near Chiang Rai. All bamboo; including manufacturing his own flooring using machines from china.









Also say this log cabin style bamboo house.





Both houses are using the siriceus variety of bamboo from southern China. A few people are growing it now, (I just planted about 200 plants myself)
It is stronger and more durable than any of the local Thai bamboo.
The first house the logs were treated with 5% Borax solution. Life expentancy of borax treated lumber is 100 years The log house the logs were just soaked in water then painted with lacquer. Also expected to last a long time.
The builder of the log house is also a bamboo furniture manufacturer who exports most of his stuff to Europe. He did pretty well I reckon next to his house is a garage full of old Mercedes cars.

I also visited a house near Pai using both concrete and bamboo.
These foundation supports are doubled up giant asper logs.




upstairs mix of concrete/bamboo








This guy treated his logs with some green stuff,(forget the name) to make them extremely durable and resistant to rot and pests.

Usage severely restricted now in most countries...I remember back when they ran around Oz ripping out the coppers logs from just about every school, park and playground in the country.


From CSIRO

In Australia, CCA preservatives are regulated by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA). The APVMA implemented a number of restrictions on CCA that became effective in March 2006. The main implementation affecting the public is that CCA is no longer used to treat timber for structures where there is frequent and intimate contact, such as playground equipment, picnic tables, handrails, decking boards, garden furniture and exterior seating.

I have few hectares of bammboo forest that i need clear to make space for mango orchard expansion.
I was up in Cordillera Philippines over new year and by inspecting, chopping of the land, we found 2 more 30 year old mango trees in the bamboo forest... All this has grown up since the death of the grandfather. The bro in law was amazed as well to see what has grown since he abandonned the site.

The bamboo forest is gorgeous, sadly my photograph chopped his hand ( not severly) by cutting first stem. ( Swiss scout nephew )

It looks like clear ground and each 10 meters apart there is another shoot of 10 to 20 bamboo 20 meter high or more, lovely to walk in there. What a mess to clear when we chop chop !

I shall go back for a few days end of January, will take some pics and as we need a shelter for mango and machinery we will start a house construction in near future.

Bamboo chopping for use in construction of furniture is best done end of the year when there is lowest attack of BokBokk. The guys are busy with the mango orchard actually. 2014 shall be a time to collect info about bamboo construction and 2015 shall give a nice thread.

I have a friend who built a bamboo school. termites are a nightmare. Apparently the correct procedure is to soak the bamboo in seawater for a while. Not sure exactly how long but worth a dig if you are serious about bamboo construction

Three months.

I had been designing bamboo eco houses before a car crash interrupted my endeavours. I've researched a LOT on bamboo. There's a place in Bangkok which manufactures bamboo panels. He's pretty much a one man band and the panels are relatively expensive compared to the Chinese ones, but much better made and far more durable. There's also a company operating out of Hawaii who design and export (expensive). I had a collection of very beautiful contemporary bamboo house designs. Google is your friend

Oh no... I just build my bamboo walls without doing that
I did use termite repelling paint for the first layer though.

Looks great indeed, kind of like a log cabin. I guess it's not that expensive since bamboo is very cheap here.

The structural large pieces are soaked in seawater not interior panelling bits. Apparently this is a local practise and has been going on for a loong time.

Happen to be in the business for wood treatment in Thailand. Mixed bags of treatment methods in Thailand. We have customers who will use Boric Acid or DOT dilute in water and soak. Really an acceptable method for termites and decay. Impt to ensure a proper chemical loading and only suitable for off ground and internal applications as Boron leaches out. If intermittent rain, paint it over with a water repellent product. I also have bamboo treaters in the South who use CCA in a sap displacement method. Good permanent treatment for external and in ground. if arsenic is a problem, there are non arsenic options. My 2 cents contribution.

But it retains its structural strength much longer which is also important.

But you are right, so better use transparent varnish.

Friggin Beautiful and brilliant. Too open for me I'd be paranoid about all those little visitors that could come trucking in with evil on their minds. Snakes and my state of mind do not mix.

Very brilliant design, looks great, and very eco-friendly.
