Finishes

Iron Matrix can be internally finished the same way as any traditional home. Because the structure has no diagonal bracing through the walls of roof. Whole modules (laundry, kitchen bathroom etc) can be slid in from the side or dropped into an Iron Matrix structure at any time.

Challenging Sites

It wasn’t enough to design a house that anyone could build. We wanted a house that anyone could build, any where. The first Iron Matrix home was built on the side of a rather intimidating 20-30 degree hill that even these pictures don’t quite do justice to. If you drop something round, like a roll…

Solar Awnings

For 2 years I’ve been trying to work out how to make awnings for Iron Matrix. The CAD model has 16 different layers for this item which means I thought I had it right 16 times previously. I really didn’t want to spend money on something that blocked the sun that wasn’t a solar panel.…

Betting on PV

The world is changing. For the last hundred years we as a planet enjoyed the enormous benefits of fossil fuel production. What’s was so amazing about this energy source was the shear amount of energy returned for the amount of energy required to extract. It used to be 20-40 times (20-40x). But not anymore. As…
