Hi, I'm planning to build a Temazcal (Mexican sweat lodge) on our farm north of Toronto, Canada, in the Spring of 2020. Aircrete has been recommended. Does anyone have any thoughts as to the appropriateness of this material, considering the bricks will be subjected to high humidity, and being warmed and cooled frequently? I know aircrete is porous and has to be sealed, in this case on the outside and inside, with cladding or stucco of some kind, to keep the moisture out. And does aircrete release any gasses when heated that could be noxious? And if there are any aircrete enthusiasts who live in the area and are interested in helping out, please let me know!
we have been researching for our community build and love the ease/cost of aircrete, but then one of us looked into radon and are now wondering what design factors are being used to mitigate radon leaching from cement into living space.
Hay proyectos que se estén haciendo en mi país, Chile? O que se hayan realizado y se puedan visitar? Me interesaría aprender haciendo, ayudar en la construcción ya que me compré un terreno en el sur de Chile y me gustaría hacer una casa ecológica y amigable con el medio ambiente.
