@destraht If you are talking about concrete using wood particles as an aggregate I wouldn't do it. It would have a few structural upsides but also the downsides of an organic material: rot and pests. You simply cannot beat concrete structures for simplicity and endurance. Make plans for ventilation and build around the porous nature of concrete. You could do membranes or do like various military installations have done for a long time, you make the concrete bunker then essentially build a standard structure inside of it.
I don't need to simplify for you but to make it easier to explain the train of thought it's like how many standard homes do not let rain in. A downpour can happen and they won't leak. Do that, but surround it in concrete. Just making a concrete box has problems I'm certain you are aware of, and making and interior that stands off the concrete (even if it's just 2x4 studs for floors and walls) allows you to enjoy many benefits of concrete without the downside of heat/cooling being leeched through it and moisture issues.
Also account for passive heating and cooling, if you make a lot of large extra concrete feet/anchors that go down below frostline that structure will thermal regulate a lot better than you would think. This is what a lot of in-ground homes in the US do, they have a shape like this _____/ with the open side being a standard brick wall towards a yard and the backside is underground. Those angled sides can stretch out 10ft or more past the front wall to extra stability and to provide even more passive heating and cooling.Read More
@TiberiusBravo87 Do you know anything about this "wood concrete"? I'm evaluating building materials now. This country is absolutely badass for cheap metal and salvaged reinforced concrete prices due to the economic collapse and this having been an industrial powerhouse.
