Slipform Stone Masonry DVD.

Slipform Stone Masonry DVD
With Builder and Author Thomas J. Elpel
Video Companion to
Living Homes: Stone Masonry, Log, and Strawbale Construction

      Want to build a stone house? It's easier than you might think! Slipform Stone Masonry brings to life the nuts-and-bolts of the slipforming process featured in Tom's book Living Homes.

      Slipforming is the process of using forms on both sides of the wall as a guide for the stonework. The forms are filled with stone and concrete, then "slipped" up the walls to form the subsequent levels. Slipforming makes stone work easy even for the novice.

      In this unique video, Thomas J. Elpel and Robert Taylor build an insulated workshop out of stone, demonstrating the building process from site excavation right through to putting the roof on and finishing the inside. Working through the month of June in Montana, they brave the rain and snow, gusting winds, searing heat and stunning rainbows to bring this project to fruition.

      The video is designed as a companion to Tom's book Living Homes. The principles of design and construction are out-lined in the book, enabling the reader to create dwellings customized to their own unique situations. In this video you will see just one application of those principles, but in vivid detail from start to finish. With both the book and the video you too will be able to design and build in a way that is completely unique to your own Vision. DVD. November 2001. 1 hr. 50 min.

      Wow! Tom! I saw your slipform video and it was awesome!! Stumbling onto your slipform video was not only timely but life changing. I was in a situation where I didn't know what to do and the video provided the best solution. It was the motivation for excavating under my house and building a retaining wall for an extra room/tornado shelter and also for jacking up a sagging foundation. It took three months but it worked! Seeing your daughter mixing concrete and your son helping to pour it was also very inspiring.

      Many thanks,

Hector Olague


Tom,

      I received my order today. The video is the best how-to video I've ever seen. Keep up the good work!

      Thanks,

Hugh & Myra


Hi Jeanne & Tom,

      Package arrived safely. Thanks for the swift processing. Tom's DVD played perfectly on a UK DVD player and on my computer. Besides enjoying the DVD immensely may I compliment Tom on how well he presented and particularly how clearly he enunciates the English language. I understood every syllable. Superb value both book and DVD.
