2 THE CHALLENGE that all materials and processes be:  NON- (OR VERY LOW) TOXIC –CONTAINING LITTLE OR NO HARMFUL SUBSTANCES –IN PRODUCING OR IN FINAL APPLIED PRODUCT  FIRE, MOLD, WATER & SHRINK RESISTANT –CAN SUSTAIN LONG TERM WATER EMERSION  NON DISRUPTIVE TO BUILDING PROCESS –LITTLE OR NO LEARNING CURVE –READILY AVAILBLE ORDERED MATERIALS  AFFORDABLE –CAN BE FINANCED CONVENTIONALLY –COMPARIBLE IN PRICE TO CONVENTIONAL  SUSTAINABLE –READILY AVAILBLE RENEWABLE RESOURCES –PRODUCES LITTLE OR POLUTION OR WASTE  NON CONDUCTIVE –(THERMALLY & ELECTRONICALLY)

3 A Natural Prescription FOR A CONVENTIONAL SLAB ON GRADE STICK FRAMED BUILDING ENVELOPE  FOUNDATION: –USE NON CONDUCTIVE REBAR IN FOOTINGS  USE FIBERGLASS OR NEW BASALT REBAR - REPLACE VAPOR BARRIER UNDER SLAB - REPLACE VAPOR BARRIER UNDER SLAB  ADD “BREATHING” CLAY TREATED WOOD CHIPS LAYER OR OTHER NON-HYDROSCOPIC AREATED, INSULATIVE, NON CODUCTIVE MATERIALS UNDER SLAB -(2” to 4” deep) –USE NON CONDUCTIVE REBAR UNDER SLAB  WALLS: –MGO/CLAY MASTIC UNDER UNTREATED SILL PLATE –MGO/CLAY SLURRY COATING ON ENTIRE FRAME  DONE BEFORE SHEETING APPLIED –MGO CEMENT/FIBER BOARD EXTERIOR SHEETING –NON OR LOW TOXIC INSULATION –MGO CEMENT/FIBER BOARD INTERIOR SHEETING –BREATHING, LOW OR NON TOXIC STUCCO

4 A Natural Prescription FOR A CONVENTIONAL SLAB ON GRADE STICK FRAMED BUILDING ENVELOPE  FRAMED SECOND FLOOR: –ENTIRE JOIST AREA MGO/CLAY MISTED –MGO CEMENT/FIBER BOARD SHEETING OVER  BOARD CAN BE PRE STAINED/SCORED/”UV”HARDENED –NON OR LOW TOXIC INSULATION ADDED  COTTON,CELLULOSE, PERLITE (ECT)  ROOF: –ENTIRE RAFTER/TRUSS AREA MGO/CLAY MISTED –MGO CEMENT/FIBER BOARD SHEETING OVER –USE LEAST TOXIC/CONDUCTIVE FINISH ROOF OVER  CLAY TILE, CONCRETE TILE, COMPO (ECO) SHAKE (ECT)

5 A Natural Prescription FOR A CONVENTIONAL SLAB ON GRADE STICK FRAMED BUILDING ENVELOPE  NON- (OR VERY LOW) TOXIC –CONTAINS ONLY NATURAL MINERALS (NO POLYMERS)-<008% SILICA CONTENT –PRODUCTION REQUIRES <20% OF THE ENERGY TO PRODUCE PORTLAND CEMENT  FIRE, MOLD, WATER & SHRINK RESISTANT –CAN SUSTAIN LONG TERM UNDER WATER EMERSION-UL,ASTM, ICC APPROVALS  NON DISRUPTIVE TO BUILDING PROCESS –LITTLE OR NO LEARNING CURVE-IF YOU CAN USE HARDI BOARD YOUR READY –DIRECTLY REPLACES PLYWOOD, OSB AND SHEETROCK IN SAME SIZES & RATINGS –READILY AVAILBLE ORDERED MATERIALS IN BULK  AFFORDABLE –CAN BE FINANCED CONVENTIONALLY (SAME AS HARDIBOARD) –COMPARIBLE IN PRICE TO CONVENTIONAL HARDIBOARD SHEETED BUILDING  SUSTAINABLE –READILY AVAILBLE RENEWABLE RESOURCES (~8%OF EARTHS SURFACE MGO) –PRODUCES LITTLE OR POLUTION OR WASTE,<20% OF ENERGY NEEDED FOR P.C.  NON CONDUCTIVE –THERMALLY AND ELECTRONICALLY LESS CONDUCTIVE THAN SHTRK, OSB OR P.W.  BONDS TO ALL THINGS CELULOSE - WITHOUT SPECIAL PRETREATMENT WHY MGO CEMENT & MGO/FIBER BOARD?

6 A Natural Prescription FOR A CONVENTIONAL SLAB ON GRADE STICK FRAMED BUILDING ENVELOPE THE KELLY BUTCHER RESIDENCE, NORTH CENTRAL MINNESOTA

7 A Natural Prescription FOR A CONVENTIONAL SLAB ON GRADE STICK FRAMED BUILDING ENVELOPE  THE FUTURE Mgo floor joists Mgo wall panels Mgo fire doors Mgo ICC approval (S.I.P.’s)
