Houses are constructed of brick with excellent insulation value In this climate, houses have neither heating or cooling systems
Amecameca is situated at the base of an active volcano Houses are built to withstand seismic activity
Rebar reinforces the brick houses Horizontally, vertically and at wall joints
Mortar is mixed by hand
Soaking bricks in water keeps the mortar from drying too fast
Corner posts and string help build straight, plumb walls
“Butter” one end of each brick Then set it on a bed of mortar
Tongue must be held just right For best results when setting brick
Use a trowel or rubber mallet to nudge bricks into position
Scrape away excess mortar Then tool the joints smooth
Bucket and brick scaffold Holding down the scaffold
Need to reach from both sides!!
Electrical wires will run through plastic conduit Boxes are mortared into holes cut into the brick
Current house has a baño with a manual flush system But no running water!
Surface mounted water supply lines on earlier Habitat houses
Installing waste lines before pouring the bathroom floor Very thin PVC - Schedule 10, perhaps?
Cutting copper pipe with a badly-worn tool
Preparing copper hot & cold supply lines Will be embedded in the floor and wall Global Village Team taught the families how to work with copper piping. They previously had no plumbing skills.
Pressure testing the pipes
Mounting supply line on outside of rear wall Is it plumb, Dale?
Plumbing embedded in wall
Shower valves & conduit for kitchen electric outlet Yes, the wall is level!
Water supply lines were retrofit in David’s house We cut channels into the brick
Pipes were cut to fit and soldered into the channels Channels will be grouted with mortar and may be covered with decorative tile
Floor prep included leveling the dirt, wetting & tamping Concrete was then poured and finished
Hand mixing concrete for David’s floor Laura’s favorite job!
