Congratulations to all our wonderful participants for another successful summer session.
We teach builders, engineers, architects, handymen, building inspectors, potential homeowners, and those with a general interest in green building.
Our courses are overwhelmingly well received, and everyone comes away from our course with an enhanced idea of what SIREWALL is, and whether or not it makes sense in their work/life situation.
This is a weekend-long course that includes intense practical and intellectual stimulation and touring SIREWALL homes.
This five-day course directly follows the introductory course, which is a prerequisite.
Participants are immersed in building the SIREWALL way in a hands-on environment. The scope of the walls to be built is tailored to the number of participants.
Each day ends with participants sharing what they have learned so far, which accelerates and deepens the learning. Participating in actual SIREWALL building, in combination with theory, discussion, and explanations, solidifies participants’ understanding of the technology.
Getting intimate with dirt to make something beautiful is when SIREWALL really starts to make sense.
Students will learn exactly what they came to learn. It is extremely rare that participants leave with unanswered questions, despite some of them coming with very long lists! The main benefit to the amount of group-learning we offer is that participants leave with answers, even to questions they hadn’t yet thought to ask.
We became disillusioned with conventional homebuilding and made the move to SIREWALL. It is so important that people stop building toxic, disposable homes as such practices wreak havoc on the environment and are largely responsible for climate change. Building with SIREWALL is a sustainable solution that can lead to positive change, and we’re passionate about spreading the word.
Those who have already benefitted from our courses include:
What people get out of the course is driven by what they want to learn. For some people the engineering segment is the most interesting, while others benefit most from touring houses we’ve built.
Some people love the networking with like minded individuals, while others are moved and enlightened by the depth and breadth of our green conversations.
Those who continue on to the practicum gain a deep and tactile understanding of the inherent pleasure in building in a way that not only aligns up with their values, but that is also a fun team-based endeavour.
What is shared by almost all participants is the realization that what is now possible in building goes far beyond what conventional building offers.
This was a course unlike any other. I enjoyed the way Meror showed his passion about SIREWALL with us. I enjoyed the people, the setting and the food was fabulous. Thank you.
This course is an excellent starting point for anyone interested in creating a building that works with the environment – with positive impacts from a personal to a global level.
Meeting Meror, and learning about his philosophy about building/life was reassuring. It is good to know that the man behind the business is intelligent, thoughtful, and has integrity.
Surprised by the science behind something so elegantly simple.
This course has deepened my passion and commitment to environmental building and being more environmentally conscious in the design, materials and clients I select.
The transparency of SIREWALL’s design process and the honesty about mistakes made, was very inspiring and should be a model for every company.
