This is the entire lightning-paced joint session I did with Clay Chapman at CNU21 Unsacntioned at the Peery Hotel in Salt Lake City. I covered the big picture of the Original Green at the blistering pace of just over 5 slides per minute… first time I've ever done that. And Clay closed out with the awesome work that he's doing to pull off the unthinkable: build a loadbearing masonry house designed to last a thousand years, and do it at a cost that regular people can afford. The first one was around $150 per square foot, but he believes he can get it down to $85 per square foot soon. This changes everything!
