Ubuntublox Housing – We Are One

Posted by on August 13, 2020 in News | 0 comments

During my career, I have been drawn to heretics such as Harvey Lacey, a retired welder from Wylie TX who wanted to help people in developing nations build their own homes out of plastic trash. Flashback to the Ubuntublox housing concept in 2012, a concept that could be a reality if we could get companies to stand behind building sustainable housing that would in turn help clean up our planet and give people jobs. We could use these homes now in a big way for developing nations and even our own country. The clip attached shows how Harvey’s Ubuntublox house could withstand a 7.0-8.0 magnitude earthquake. He built his first house in Haiti, a place where people are more scared of their homes than earthquakes. We need more believers like Harvey and individuals who fight for the well-being of those who are less fortunate.

The one-pound building blocks are made from plastic trash and tied together by welder’s string. They dance together as one during the earthquake test.
