There is a tyranny to dimensional materials. 4x8 sheet, ima looking at you. Geopolymers come in a bucket.
Houses should probably built in modular units on an assembly line with materials produced in the dimensions specified by the process; not the process modified to accommodate standard material dimensions.

If materials must be cut, that represents an unnecessary step and a bespoke design. Materials should arrive, and assembly completed by automated systems. If human hands are required for assembly, the process hasn't been optimized sufficiently.

These modular units receiving final assembly after transport to the final location.

Maybe the bones of the house, but it can't be too sterile.

People are funny, they want to hang pictures on the wall instead of projecting them.

In their car, they want padded doors with remote control locks, and power windows. But not in their houses.

I prefer all those things in a house.

I want blinds that are computer controlled, opening for the angle of the sunlight when heat gain is preferred, and closing to the angle of sunlight when heat rejection is preferred. I'd pay 5x the price for blinds if they reliably incorporated that functionality.

...I just recently replaced the junk exhaust vent the builder saved $5 on with a humidity sensing one that is 10x more energy efficient 2x more air volume, and 1/4 the noise.

Back in the day playing carpenter: standard cookie cutter house with end gable roof had many standard sizes and if built properly, not much waste materials as the falls were used somewhere else like for blocking. Had to think what you were doing, not just cut and nail.
Speedo carpenter had huge waste piles.
Windows in subdivisions were generally 36 x 50 except for the living room, doors standard 30-36 x 81

IIRC, hard to project stuff on the walls back in the early '60s

In the 1960s my mother painted trompe l'oeil on the living room wall. IIRC a branch of a Birch tree.

In the 1980s they built a 3v geodesic dome that was 39ft in diameter. That's the optimal size for 4x8 sheets. When they sheet-rocked the interior, the scraps fit in a five gallon bucket.

That's not a projection unless it was a 3D picture.

Just so i know, how much structural materials waste on that dome?

Thanks for asking. The biggest waste was ripping a bevel on 2x4 or 2x6 to frame the panels. Any size other than 39ft (at 3v) wastes paneling material. The panels were engineered with studs 16" on center, totally inappropriate for a triangular panel.

Fuller's public domain HexaPent patent has simplified infill and fewer edges.

Substituting metal studs for wood would allow simply bending the dihedral angle.

Further gains from taking the 8ft dimension as the altitude rather than the base of a hex panel.

And I'm pretty sure the tree branch was projected from a slide rather than freehand. The living room walls were painted Flamingo.

"The Lithium Age"? I doubt it. Sodium-Ion batteries will blunt that.

But Winnemuca is on track to be a boom town again. The first mine isn't online until 2027, but General Motors has already sewn up the first ten years of production.

When you know it's over but refuse to admit it.
Infowars, private jets heading to global warming conference frozen to the parking apron with the help of an all time record Munich snow fall off 44cm. I hear that's a lot of inhes of snow.
