Plasterboard
DRYWALL (also known as PLASTERBOARD, WALLBOARD, gypsum panel, SHEET ROCK, or GYPSUM BOARD) is a panel made of calcium sulfate dihydrate (gypsum ) with or without additives and normally pressed between a facer and a backer (typically thick sheets of paper ). It is used to make interior walls and ceilings. The plaster is mixed with fibre (typically paper and/or fibreglass ), plasticizer , foaming agent , and various additives that can decrease mildew , increase fire resistance, and lower water absorption. Drywall construction became prevalent in North America as a speedier alternative to traditional lath and plaster

Callitris
See text SYNONYMS * Frenela Mirb. * Cyparissia Hoffmanns. * Octoclinis F. Muell. * Leichhardtia T. Steph. ex Gordon * Nothocallitris A. V. Bobrov in C. macleayana, needle-like leaves are found mixed with scale leaves throughout the tree's life. The scales are arranged in six rows along the twigs, in alternating whorls of three (often in whorls of four in C. macleayana). The male cones are small, 3–6 mm (0.12–0.24 in) long, and are located at the tips of the twigs. The female cones start out similarly inconspicuous, maturing in 18–20 months to 1–3 cm (0.39–1.18 in) long and wide, globular to ovoid (acute in C. macleayana), with six overlapping, thick, woody scales, arranged in two whorls of three (often 8 scales in C. macleayana). The cones remain closed on the trees for many years, opening only after being scorched by a bushfire ; this then releases the seeds to grow on the newly cleared burnt ground

Cob (building)
COB, COBB or CLOM (in Wales) is a natural building material made from subsoil , water, fibrous organic material (typically straw ), and sometimes lime . The contents of subsoil naturally vary, and if it does not contain the right mixture it can be modified with sand or clay. Cob is fireproof, resistant to seismic activity, and inexpensive. It can be used to create artistic, sculptural forms, and its use has been revived in recent years by the natural building and sustainability movements. In technical building and engineering documents such as the Uniform Building Code , cob may be referred to as an "unburned clay masonry" when used in a structural context. It might also be referred to as an "aggregate" in non-structural contexts, such as a "clay and sand aggregate" or more simply an "organic aggregate," such as where the cob is an insulating filler between post and beam construction
