Abstract:
During the past six years my time has been given over exclusively to the construction of concrete unburnable homes. The experience I have met with in my efforts to persuade owners that a concrete house was the best possible investment has convinced me that there are two main stumbling blocks to be overcome before concrete will come to its own as the domestic building material par-excellence.
