Sustainable eco houses anyone?
http://earthfirst.com/7-amazing-handmade-eco-friendly-homes/ for some brilliant ideas of low budget, sustainable living. The house pictured has a hobbit like feel and was made primarily by a father and son and sits in a welsh hillside. Put together using straw bales, lime plaster and lots of natural wood the entire house cost in the region of £3000 to build. Check out the website for many other ideas if you are thinking about taking sustainable living to a new level. There is also a trend for making houses in a modular fashion and often shipping containers are used in this process. Why not research these ideas and see what you can come up with.
