Architecture-Design House

Yesterday an architecture called Kris Wilson came and talked to us about sustainable and evnviromentally friendly buildings and structures.
It was really interesting and we learned alot about what we will need on our island. If you want to build a house or something it is best to use low energy items. That means that there should be not so much effort put into things I think!!
Solar panelling is a good idea and also grey water systems which are not so popular as normal water products. When you are on a bulding site you collect a lot of waste like timber cut offs and blocks you didnt need. This is not goos for the enviroment and sometimes can cause pollution.
Here is a picture of a house that Kris designed. Pretty cool.

Solar Paneling

Yay I finally worked out how solar paneling works and it makes a lot more sense!
here is a small diagram to show that the suns rays hit the panels and they give energy to the battery and the battery gives out electricity to the appliances e.g cell phine chargers, laptops, t.vs, fans and things like that. If you had heaps of panels you could probably run a fridge/freezer!

My Job

On the island i am now officially a natural pharmacist. I haven't worked out the proper name for it yet but that sounds professional enough at the moment. For my job i will have to research plants and healing thing naturally. Like if you had a migraine you could get some basil oil, put in a bowl with boiling water then put a towel over your head then sit there for 10 minutes your migraine could possibly be clear. I would also look for old Maori treatments from plants and trees.
