The eco housing unit and energy efficient charcoal kiln

This is the first of a long line of kilns and modified manyattas that are almost exclusively made from on site materials. Fired clay bricks. Local raw material, local energy and labour. all thats needed is a door, window and a oven jiko! material and labour cost per unit in Ilariak as of dec. 2008 ~ 15000/= (200$)!

Firing the raw bricks in an open field kiln~ an external clay lining would of increased firing temps...next time...not on boxing day anyway..
