Most cement block walls will use several different types of blocks, especially stretchers and corner units. Mortar joints. Each row of blocks is joined to the adjoining blocks with either type N (above grade) or type S (below grade) mortar.   New Mexico native Laura Sanchez presents 12 plans for building with adobe, one of the world's most energy efficient materials. Along with her husband, Alex, Sanchez and Sanchez have given us designs that are flexible and expandable. But this is no ordinary plan book.

      Green Building Supply features natural and non-toxic building materials -- that are safe, environmentally friendly and sustainable. Improve indoor air quality, eliminate toxic chemicals and create a healthier home. We optimize for chemical sensitivity, energy efficiency and the environment. An ecobrick is a plastic bottle packed with used plastic to a set density. They serve as reusable building blocks. Ecobricks can be used to produce various items, including furniture, garden walls and other structures. Ecobricks are produced primarily as a means of managing plastic waste by sequestering it and containing it safely, by terminally reducing the net surface area of the packed.
