Build Simple Inc.

Organization Description: 

We serve by designing, consulting, training, testing, and assisting with structural testing. We provide illustrated information to help owner-builders and designers and architects understand their choices. These include: E-books and slide shows that teach building Plans of standard buildings free online Training videos We answer emails and have Skype conversations to advise about building for climate, choosing materials, and reinforcing for the level of risk. We also can make site visits to give soil and site advice, and create custom building plans. Because some of the most promising earthen materials for seismic risk areas have not yet been tested, we also focus on doing simple structural tests and working with university students willing to do needed laboratory tests.
