Home Builders Are Turning to Natural Materials to Navigate Shortages
A rise in housing demands and the pandemic’s effects on factories and transportation systems by means of closures and delays leads to a home construction material supply shortage. Many architects and designers are turning to natural materials to compete against the shortages.
According to Mansion Global, rather than sit back and wait for critical supplies to become available, innovative architects and designers are turning to alternative methods in home building. And some are ahead of the curve on this front, like the Tucson, Arizona-based architecture firm DUST, which has long used materials native to the southwest, like rammed earth, volcanic rock and adobe brick to create new luxury residential homes.
