EL RITO CAMPUS

ADOBE CONSTRUCTION BASICS   -  October 3 & 4, 2014 - $65.00
Learn about Adobe Construction, a building technique that has been around for thousands of years and is the original "green" building method. The Friday lecture with slides will cover all aspects of making adobes and building walls as covered in the New Mexico Earthen Building Materials Construction Code. It will also cover essential items useful to construction that are not in the Code. On Saturday, students will make adobe bricks and learn to learn to lay bricks to build a wall with a corner and window opening. This will take place inside or just outside of the El Rito Adobe Shop.

SOLAR HOT WATER - October 11& 12, 2014
$65.00 - 8:30 to 4:30 on Saturday and 9:30 to 3:30 on Sunday. 

This workshop addresses active and passive solar systems to produce hot water for a home to replace or supplement standard domestic hot water heaters (DHW). It covers flat plate systems that use antifreeze to transfer heat through a heat exchanger to the tank. These systems may be active and use pumps to circulate antifreeze and hot water or they may be passive and rely on convection/thermosyphons to move heat from the collector to the tank. Simple “bread box” water heaters where the sun directly heats a tank of water in a reflective insulated box are also covered. Two systems will be assembled to give students hands-on experience with plumbing techniques and different approaches to harvesting heat from the sun. (El Rito)
