Project Intro & Overview[edit | edit source]
The Campus Center for Appropriate Technology (CCAT) has been around for over 30 years, promoting the practice and implementation of various sustainable technologies and renewable resources. To continue in CCAT’s tradition of demonstrating sustainable practices and appropriate design, a “Green Shed” was inspired, designed, and built. The tool shed idea was conceived in 2007 because of CCAT’s need for an appropriate place to store their tools. The “Green Shed” was built using various natural building techniques, assisted by a few modern construction processes. Although CCAT has had tool sheds in the past, this was built with more durable and permanent intentions.
The pages categorized below include a summary of the project, discussing the various methods, materials, processes, problems, and future considerations in relation to the “Green Shed” project at CCAT.
