(re)source Pavilion Durisol wall rises!




Shawn and Francis spent about 4 hrs on the weekend raising 3/4 of the Durisol wall for the Pavilion. The lightweight Durisol blocks, manufactured from waste wood chips and concrete, easily stack one over the other in a brick pattern. Steel re-bar were added in every course horizontally and every second core vertically. Next week the walls will be filled with concrete and allowed to cure for a few days before the the start of the major built. Already more than a dozen volunteers have signed up for the project.
