The peter-post is a simple and effective means of creating versatile, strong and adaptable eco-building structures. Used in conjunction with simple floor and roof beams, peter-post structures are an ideal means for owner-builders to learn the intricacies of making strong and stable 3D structures.
The peter-post is the key element in EconoSpaceMaking
Peter-posts facilitate easy jointing – a key aspect of building construction. They are also versatile enough to allow for differing depths and thicknesses of insulation material to be incorporated into a building structure.
A further advantage of peter-post structures is that they incorporate a suspended timber floor thereby avoiding the need to have a concrete slab.
Apart from their use in ‘full size’ structures peter-posts can be used to make tables, storage units, cubbys, play structures, etc. The only limit is one’s imagination!
