With the industry unable to cope with the lack of resources, a Coimbatore-based local has risen to the occasion.
It was in April 2019 when 26-year-old Aravind Manoharan first used all-natural products to build Damarugam, a kids’ learning centre in Coimbatore.
A few villages, such as Kangeyam in Tiruppur, used a variety of local material to build homes, such as stone, limestone, salli mannu (concrete soil) and odai mannu (stream soil), to build homes.
Aravind uses the Laurie Baker model of construction, and has built exposed walls, roof tiles, partial bamboo walls, rat-trap bond walls and unplastered walls.
The proper ambience can connect residents to the ecology and makes for healthy living.
