“Grand Designs” 8:30 Tuesday ABC 1
Covering the off-the-grid “rubbish homes” built from recycled tyres packed with earth for load bearing walls, and coke-bottle & tin packed walls for internal private (but non load bearing) walls… with their own water & sewerage recycling & energy systems.
Living mortgage free, off the grid, no utility bills whatsoever, warm in winter, cool in summer…. ahhhhh, I can have my dreams!
These homes are a fusion between hobbit homes and something Anakin Skywalker might have lived in, maybe with a Spanish twist.
We could do a lot worse than give local townships the power to approve sturdy buildings like these.
