How to build a wooden cottage in... 4 hours!

This film shows a wooden holiday house construction, which in reality took 4h to raise. NEW! and See the ready hut here: ; and A luxury log cabin may be seen here: In this vid the crew started just after 7 A.M. and they finished right after 11 A.M. the same morning. The longest it took to level out the concrete foundation blocks. Foiling and insulation against heat loss as well as electrical installation took some more time but was worth it, esp. in colder climate.

Couple Builds Energy Efficient Passive Solar Home - Green Building

In this video we meet Casey & Natasha, a conscious couple who built a passive solar home near Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. In addition to orienting their house to face south, they installed overhangs that block the sun to keep it cool during summer months and allow the sun to enter and heat the house during winter months. They also installed a 10 kW solar system that sells clean electricity back to the grid through Ontario's MicroFIT Program and the revenue helps cover their own utility bills. The house was built to Passive House standards and is currently pending certification. You can learn more about Passive House here: The exterior walls of this house are 20" thick and are insulated using Roxul insulation which is made locally, better for the environment, can get wet, and has less flame retardants than traditional fiberglass insulation, which means cleaner air quality in the home. To maximize the energy efficiency of their home, they installed triple glazed windows, a drain water heat recovery system, an air source heat pump water heater, and a bioethanol fireplace. They also chose sustainable alternatives like concrete countertops instead of granite, and reclaimed pine flooring instead of using new wood. Last but not least, they designed their house to be completely fossil fuel-free which means that they don't use any fossil fuels to power or heat their home. Casey & Natasha are building a conscious group of companies to align their work life with their personal values. Their companies include The Conscious Builder, the Conscious Living podcast and the Conscious Store (coming soon!). Thanks for watching!

What is project management?

In this video you will learn: • What is project management? • When do we use project management? • Why do we use project management? To learn more, visit us at Everywhere you look, projects are underway. Whether you’re recruiting a new member of staff or constructing the world’s tallest building, every project needs a manager to ensure its success; someone with their eye on every detail, at every stage, from inception to completion. Put simply, project management is about getting things done. It’s about knowing exactly what you want to achieve, how you’re going to achieve it, and how long it will take. It’s about ensuring that everyone involved shares and understands those aims, before the first steps are taken, and that they continue to as the end of the project – whatever it is - draws closer. Because successful projects don’t just happen. They’re not just a long list of jobs to be done, they are a masterpiece of planning, management, organisation and communication; a carefully choreographed sequence of events, where progress is smooth and steady, one step leads seamlessly to the next, and every possible hitch has been considered and countered. A successful project needs people with the right skills and knowledge at its heart. Working together, a well-managed, motivated team with clear roles, responsibilities, and reporting lines, will carry a project to its conclusion without compromising on time, cost or quality. Project management is a wonderful thing – but it’s easy to forget how the world might look without it. Because, at its best, project management is virtually invisible. It is the absence of problems and the prevention of failure. But behind every successful project – whether it’s changing the way a company works or the organisation of an important event – there’s an unsung hero: The project manager, who kept everything and everyone on track to ensure the delivery of the desired result. At APM we support project managers in all the amazing work they do every day. If you’d like to know more about project management, visit us at
