Woman quits her job to build beautiful bamboo house

Elora Hardy have spent last 5 years revolutionizing bamboo construction. She left her successful fashion career in NY to work on her project in Bali.
Bamboo has the compressive force of concrete, the strength-to-weight ratio of steel, and is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. Damage from insects and moisture are its primary weaknesses, but if treated, bamboo structures can last a lifetime. Hardy uses boron, which occurs naturally in nature, to treat the bamboo and make it indigestible to insects.
