Welcome to our web site!

On this home page, we'll introduce our business and our experiences.  This innovative building process has many advantages to people who are looking for a more effcient and affordable home or commercial building.  Everyone derserves to live in a home that is energy efficient, low maintenance, sound proof extremely strong and asthetically pleasing.  PBI has bridged the gap between conventional building to environmental building.  A hybrid that appeals to many.  A vision of homeownership that is affordable to everyone.

PBI will teach you how to build a padobe building from the ground up.  We have hands-on training workshops that show you how to build step-by-step.  You even learn to make your own Padobe bricks.  This process is great for the Do-It-Yourself person or organizations who want to build for the community. It's a very intense hands-on class that all can participate in.  If your interested in just learning a new building technique, this class is for you. All workshops are three days (Fri.- Sun.).  Hands-on training begins immediately.  Padobe is a brick made like an adobe brick, but with an environmental twist...the Padobe is made from recycled paper, water and a very small amount of cement.  The bricks are strong, light weight and very durable.  These ingredients make a great building alternative!!! 
Did you know that paper makes up about 27% of landfill material.  That's a lot of paper and a great resource to make a great building product.
