Construction Details

Aeonian Brick Homes is the only brick manufacturer in the United States that produces a waterproof, interlocking brick. The bricks will be sold to homebuilders and contractors throughout the United States as part of a complete green home building system, which will include a new roofing system, with the same advantages as the walls.

The Aeonian Brick:

Weighs: 20 lbs.

Measurements:8″ x 8″ x 4.5″

 

Aeonian bricks are not just a new kind of brick; they represent a new concept and total building system.

No Drywall

Almost without exception, every new building built today employs drywall as a finished surface for the interior walls. Drywall is the number one cause of mold and mildew and is found today in 90% of all homes built since 1960. Many people have serious health conditions brought on or aggravated by mold and mildew and are not aware of the cause. Our brick walls are so dense, that when painted with any semi-gloss or gloss paint, they become totally waterproof and incapable of supporting the growth of mold or mildew.

No Interior Wall Framing

All walls are constructed with our bricks, so no wood is needed for the walls of the home. The bricks are solid, so there is no way for termites or other insects to invade the rafters even if wood trusses were used. Wood is the number three cause of mold and mildew.

Less Building Time

All plumbing and electrical lines are installed as the brick wall is erected and finishing the walls is accomplished with a spray gun, so the total building time can be cut by up to two weeks. Our interlocking brick construction is very easy and contractor training will be accomplished by creating a DVD that will teach contractors how to build with the brick, step by step on or off the job site. You can learn more on how we will be creating the video on http://www.ultimateyoutubeguide.com/

Concrete Roof System

Installing a wood truss roof system on our homes would leave the home vulnerable to fires, storms, leaks, insect damage and more. To remedy this problem, we will install a concrete roof system which will be just as strong as our wall system. Roof tiles, made with our brick material, will be used to give the roof an expensive tile roof appearance. No repair or maintenance work will be needed for many lifetimes.

Aeonian Bricks (http://Aeonianbricks.com) manufactures an interlocking, compressed earth brick for the exterior and interior walls of a home or any other type of building. The bricks are waterproof at a molecular level and will never expand or contract. They are 2 1/2 x times stronger than concrete blocks and very dense, making them smooth to the touch with edges never before seen on a brick or block. Homes built with the bricks will be able to withstand 240 mph wind pressures with no damage. There is no drywall or wood in the home, so it is flood and fireproof inside and out. Homes built with the bricks will save 50-60% on energy costs because the high thermal mass of the bricks is combined with an R-20 heat resistant coating.

Termites are no longer a problem and the home is soundproof from outside noise and even room to room noise. The finished home will cost no more than a wood frame home. This interlocking designed brick is part of a complete home building system that is poised to revolutionize the home building industry and provide green residential homes that will be LEED certified at the GOLD or PLATINUM LEVEL!

The two most common building materials used today are wood and concrete blocks.

As can be seen from the footage of the damage caused by Hurricane Katrina,
wood and concrete blocks are no match for wind, fire or water. New building materials, like isothermic walls (poured concrete in Styrofoam molds), are becoming more popular even though the extra cost can be significant. With the price for cement constantly rising, this type of building system will soon be cost prohibitive. All other building systems combined do not amount to 1% of the total market.

Our bricks offer a new concept in building where raw materials are abundant almost everywhere and the process of making the bricks requires less energy than any other type of building material. This alone would make our bricks stand out among other building materials but the list of advantages goes much further.

Features of Aeonian Brick Homes:

  • Two and one half times stronger than concrete blocks.
  • Hurricane and tornado resistant (sustained winds up to 240 mph).
  • Fireproof.
  • Can be cut, drilled and routed with wood working tools.
  • Insulated with a huge  thermal mass and an R-20 heat resistant coating.
  • 15 times more insulation value than a concrete block home.
  • No mold or mildew.
  • Will not sustain structural damage from flood waters.
  • No termite damage.
  • No pest control needed.
  • Paint bonds to the bricks instead of just sticking to them.
  • Soundproofs the home.
  • Virtually no maintenance on the home. EVER!
  • Faster construction time.
  • No settling problems.
  • Looks exactly like any other home in the neighborhood.
  • 50 year structural guarantee.

These homes will not blow down, burn down, be damaged by termites or waste energy. Frame homes waste energy, can not stand up against storms, are a breeding ground for mold and mildew, can be eaten by insects, leak, require constant upkeep and are built with a product that warps, splits, decays, sags, burns, dry rots, cracks, swells, shrinks and is constantly escalating in price. There is no comparison!!

Goals and Strategies

The goal of this business is to become the premiere building material in the United States. The product is easy to make and is superior to other building materials in every way. The raw materials are readily available almost everywhere in the U.S. The “Environmental” and “Green Building” movements are here to stay and the homes we build can set the standard for “building green”. We can no longer afford to build throw away buildings or waste vast amounts of energy heating and cooling them.

Homeowners insurance can not be bought for any price in several areas of the country. A homeowner buying a new home today and getting a 30 year mortgage will spend more money on repairs and upkeep of the home over the life of the mortgage, than he spent on the original price of the home. A homeowner must paint the home every three to five years, install a new roof every 15 years, replace water heaters, air conditioners, broken water pipes, windows, doors, etc. It adds up fast. Our homes will employ tankless water heaters, water conditioners so the pipes will not fill with corrosion, limestone, etc., strong energy efficient windows, solid vinyl clad doors, plastic baseboards and trim and eventually employ wind and solar systems to make the homes zero energy!

Aeonian Brick Stabilizer

Aeonian Brick Stabilizer is an Ion Exchange Resin (IER). It is differentiated from normal chemical stabilizers due to the use of water-soluble sulphonated oils. These sulphonated oils are weak organic bases, and when combined with a strong sulphuric acid, forms into a weaker species, resulting in a weaker acid with useful properties. These oils are very effective as soil electrolytes because of their high chemical stability, great affinity to ringed structures and associated metal ions, and also for their powerful ionizing capability.

When Aeonian Brick Stabilizer is sprayed on clay in the presence of water, H ions are released which are highly stable, have a double ringed structure and a compact size. These ions travel through the clay lattice from several inches to several feet.

The basic chemical reaction in the clay platelet is a change in particle charges that releases free water in the lattice. A secondary benefit is a realignment of the overall structure of the lattice. This change in particle charge and destruction of the capillaries and voids, allows the treated soil mass to resist the re-introduction of water.

Clay particles contain an excess of negative ions. The ions, like platelets along the lineal surfaces of the clay, readily polarize water molecules and bond with the positively charged hydrogen.  Aeonian Brick stabilizer possesses an enormous potential for ionic exchange. It activates water’s H+ ions and (OH)-, causing a vigorous exchange of electrical charges with the clay particles. Water bound to clay, breaks its electrochemical bonds and drains away through gravity, evaporation and compaction. Aeonian Brick Stabilizer permanently neutralizes the sites on the clay platelets that otherwise attract and bind with water. Once absorbed water separates in this irreversible process, clay particles compact through compression to create a highly dense mass, practically eliminating porosity, capillary and swell potential.

The cationic effect on the clay balances the overabundance of anionic sites on the platelets causing the platelets to attract each other instead of the water. During compaction, the platelets re-align; adding strength and stability to the brick, thus providing a permanent solution to the damaging effects of swell and consolidation associated with expansive clay in compressed earth bricks and even fired bricks.
