“A 100 Mile Home is Eugene’s first permitted residence with a natural light straw/clay wall system, and it’s being built at Emerald Village Eugene!
“Shipping containers have their pros and cons. What if you can take the pros and leave the cons behind?
“In the aftermath of a disaster, purifying drinking water may be a priority. The quickest, safest method could be boiling. This biomass stove only requires four concrete blocks, a tin can with both ends cut out and a gas stove eyelet top. The completed stove is sturdy enough to hold a several-gallon container of water, stew or a heavy cast iron Dutch oven.”
“The “Simple Humus Toilet” is a concept for an easy to install, ‘do it yourself’ composting toilet. It is not meant to threaten the conventional flush toilet culture, rather represents an alternative for anyone who ‘lives close to nature’ and wants to use a simple and low cost toilet system. It is ideal for the garden or empty section, but could also be used in disaster situations such as earthquakes.
These look quite time consuming to make, although the finished look is interesting. Consider making a few of these for decorating the entrance to your home, etc. It’s fun to have lots of design options.
