POTSDAM – Peak Moment TV, WCKN, Time Warner Digital Channel 30, host Janaia Donaldson will visit with natural builder Lydia Doleman on Feb. 17-18 at 7 p.m.
Doleman bought and remodeled a Portland house to demonstrate her values of “cities can be less impactful on the planet.”
Some highlights of her building process include: Composting toilets reduce water usage while feeding the soil. Growing food shortens dependencies. Building materials were recycled and/or less toxic. She revised the floor plan to create spaces which encourage shared living rather than separate spaces. She also built a cob studio and Portland’s first permitted straw bale residence.
