Raven Knight has been working over the last fourteen years to develop water, energy independent housing that is rapidly deployable for both disaster relief and assisting governments to improve standing in conflict zones.
We have smaller homes available. As a woman owned business we have been unfairly treated.
Once funding is available, we will update our panels and also complete water recycling systems that include Atmospheric Water Generators, Green houses and Hydrogen power generators which are under development.
Raven Knight has been seeking additional affordable, sustainable means of housing construction. We are currently researching Styrofoam Dome housing, cob building and other renewable based housing. We are also looking for other alternatives that could serve as a cost effective means to delivering housing to displaced people. Please contact us with your ideas and solutions. We look forward to working with you.
We are currently working to develop affordable completely sustainable and renewable housing systems. Check back for more information soon.
Raven Knight’s mission has been to provide “Water and Energy Independent Homes” (WEIH) in order to offer individuals and families with the opportunity to ultimately own their homes, power and water completely as a means to provide themselves with long term stability and stress free living.
In addition, “Water and Energy Independent Homes” are affordable, rapid build and retain their value just as a standard “stick built” home. They can be constructed to assist communities to rebuild after a natural disaster, relocations based on climate change or serve as developer or government implemented housing. The manufacturing of the homes and their construction employs local labor in that a manufacturing and assembly plant is built within the community as well as local labor is utilized for many facets of the overall projects.
What are SIPs?
SIPs are the 21st Century Building Material, Structural insulated panels (SIPs) are high performance building panels used in floors, walls, and roofs for residential and light commercial buildings. The panels are typically made by sandwiching a core of rigid foam plastic insulation between two structural skins of oriented strand board (OSB). Other skin material can be used for specific purposes. SIPs are manufactured under factory controlled conditions and can be custom designed for each home. The result is a building system that is extremely strong, energy efficient and cost effective. Building with SIPs will save you time, money and labor.
Are Structural Insulated Panels More Expensive?
Building with SIPs generally costs about the same as building with wood frame construction, when you factor in the labor savings resulting from shorter construction time and less job-site waste.
Other savings are realized because less expensive heating and cooling systems are required with SIP construction. Continue reading
