On October 7th a delegation from a Danish building department will pay us a visit here on Friland. They are here to study alternative building solutions. They are involved in building the main building for a "recycle station". And they are going to build it from the sort of things you receive at a recycle station.
It is my task to inspire them.
We have a lot of natural buildings to show off here, but not many using recycled materials.

I therefore ask for your help.
I am in need of written descriptions of buildings made of car tyres, phone books, coca cola cans and other unlikely building materials.
Pictures are also very welcome.

My favorite of his ideas is stacking old carpet tiles to use as walls - though I'd want to plaster 'em. <<a target="_blank" href="http://www.ruralstudio.com/lucyhouse.htm";>http://www.ruralstudio.com/lucyhouse.htm</a>>
