Earthbag houses (part 2)

Earthbag houses are great. Very solid, easy to build and cheap. A great solution for green people with small pockets.

Owen Geiger from the Geiger research Institute of Sustainable building has quite a few plans (even free ones!) on this site.

Make a pool with a container/dumpster

Most great ideas are simple ideas. If it looks like a pool, it probably can be. Louisa Dawson (London, Uk) had this idea and created this skip-pool. Especially the contrast between the rough outside and the smooth inside with the stainless steel ladder is nice.
