TEDTalks: Building Beautiful Homes Out of JunkSubmitted by skippy d on Mon, 02/18/2013 - 15:55
Hey everyone. I see a lot of people here that seem to be interested in building themselves a self-sustained comfortable home without spending a fortune. What would be more liberating than to have a home that doesn't require bending to "The Man"? I am going to start posting threads now and then on how to get off the grid, how to build really awesome homes for cheap and how to get involved in workshops. I have been researching these things for years. Below is a link to a very resourceful man I had the honor of spending a day with at his "bone house" in Huntsville Tx. We and others built a really cool cob oven in his yard. Please don't let the "sponsor" at the beginning of the video throw you off. It is TEDX's sponsor not Dan's. Hope you enjoy and get some ideas from the video!
