Pretty sure no matter what you put up, eventually Mother Nature is going to knock it down.

I guess you just have to put it down to begin with, so mother nature will knock it up.

Energy efficiency needs to be balanced against resilient design.

Wood platform framing is one of the most resilient construction methods in regard to earthquakes.

Re: Designing For Disruption


After watching my local Cow college/land grant University city 36kStudents ~50K permament citizens go through two 500 year floods, then totally Ignore everything learned less then 20 years later to favor buddies and cronies of government persons elected and hired. I learned local, regional and National government laws, regs and policies are just as important as constructing a long lasting building that can survive high winds and high water as using quality over sized structural members and long lasting roof systems.

Few buildings can survive a decade of invasions and civil War, see Obama's and Hillary's finest work in Libya, Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
And the Islamic ghettos in the EU...

During dark ages well built buildings end up lumberyards for the local hovels, or forts for the local tyrant/mobster/robber baron.

Can your home survive a single winter with out any electricity or gas from the national grid? Can the plumbing function with out 24-7-365 potable water.

Can Grandpa get to the 5 th floor when the elevator is kaput?

Can our culture survive giving nutjobs a equal vote with rational actors?

Should forcing professed beliefs in magical thinking upon others remove one from the public square as a leader or even as voter?

high taxes at any level of government reduces the economic resources needed to create "resilient" buildings, Over Zoned, over regulated further impoverish the inhabitants of the much cheaper units built in tax slave state(s).

The reliability of or national Electric grid is just as important to our individual homes' survival as building above the 500 year flood plain. IMO

Re: Designing For Disruption


And an additional thought, any surviving home or structure will quickly be taken by force if the owners aren't armed.

A Failed(ing) Nation effects every citizen coast to coast, far greater disaster then any Mother Nature gives us. No insurance policies pay for what happen during Civil Wars.

Ever dime you spend on a buildings "resilience" One needs to spend a $ on ensuring our Nation is free and sound for Grandkids...

A sane person spends 99% of the day Preventing "End of the World" scenarios, and 1 % on prepping for them....

Re: Designing For Disruption


As a specialized ICF builder, I am already ahead of the curve. We do concrete roofs and all.

I do have a design for rolling shutters for windows and doors that I want to carry on to an actual build. Then you get storm security and home security in one package.

A home I built several years back was 3 miles from the largest quake in Oklahoma, and a stick framed home about the same distance, a nearly new home, was damaged so heavily that it had to be torn down. The home I built did not even have a crack in any drywall.

That is resilient.
