The Stone House Project (working title)

We think it may be possible to build (or maybe grow) "stone" houses out of some combination of bacterially "grown" bricks like BioMason makes, self-healing concretehempcrete, or Roman cement inoculated with the either the BioMason bacteria or the self-healing concrete bacteria? Maybe even fed into the Apis Cor hopper so as to be 3D printed. We may merge this project with the Open Sourcing the Living Building Challenge project

The most radical version of this idea would be to basically build a sand castle and spray it with Bacillus pseudofirmus DSM 8715 and/or Bacillus cohnii DSM 6307 to create a limestone house, which could then be cladded in whatever material the homeowner wants to achieve their desired aesthetic.
