Please watch this video if you are considering building a TH (Tiny House/Home) that has either no or little added chemicals in the materials. Click here.
This video has been rather informative and the narrator, Brad Kittel, begs the viewers, in the name of your children, to build a TH out of non-chemical based materials. He does this throughout the entire video, but while being in an Airstream he states that heavy gasses (either from materials giving off gas or from other sources) sink. Where are most children when they’re playing? On the ground where the gasses are. This I didn’t know.
My challenge, as with Brad, is to try to build with non-chemical based materials. Search landfills, junk yards, or even places where old buildings are being torn down. I really enjoyed this video. Most of his THs are built from salvaged material. I agree with most of that. I understand where he is coming from, but I believe that some modern materials can be bought that weren’t made from harmful chemicals. Hopefully I can find such materials.
Here is another post of a chemical free TH built by Corrine.
I say that it’s worth a try. Are you with me?
