I came here looking for information on building houses with bamboo.
For the last six months I've been assembling a kind of think tank for an aid initiative for East Timor.
At the moment the group consists of a historian with a background in medieval technology, a political scientist in Spain, a nuclear engineer and myself.
I'd be very interested in hearing from anyone who has experience designing and building a house from bamboo. I'm especially interested as to whether a bamboo house with a strong load bearing flat roof can be constructed quickly and cheaply.
