Down the sustainable rabbit hole

November 14, 2007

Following on from the idea of re-purposing a treadmill into an electricity generator, I’ve been digging around in the low-impact and sustainable living web. Here is a link chain I followed tonight, leading me to see straw bale housing that has been built here in Australia!

A Low Impact Woodland Home – in Wales (a bit like a comfy hobbit hole)
Lammas
Natural Homes on a world map
Newton House in Queensland is an example house and has much information
Huff’n’Puff Strawbale Constructions run regular workshops based in central NSW
Ecopolis – ‘Architecture for a changing climate’
Your Home – an extremely useful Australian government website (gasp!) – Loads of information
