If you're in uncomfortable position and have got no money to get out from that point, you would have to take the business loans. Because it should help you definitely. I take student loan every time I need and feel myself great just because of this.

It's inspiring to see that cans can actually be chic! I also love how they've been put to practical use.

Cob Fireplaces
 
Cob Fireplace Inspiration...
Integrated Solar
 
New building-integrated photovoltaics or BIPVs blend almost seamlessly with traditional roofing materials.
Wood Stove Decathlon
 
Currently the majority of wood stoves in use deliver only 40 to 50 percent of the energy potential of the wood. This is highly wasteful. But on a bright note, many of the prototype models entered into the Wood Stove Decathlon squeezed out more than 90 percent of the wood's energy potential and burn much cleaner than older stoves. One of the keys is complete combustion...
Cob Under Construction
 
Sand, clay and hay. Mix it with your hands, your feet or a Bobcat. Sculpt in place.
Historical Cob
 
There are cob homes in the UK that are a thousand years old. In Jericho, by the Jordan River, a cob building still stands that was built 10,000 years ago.
Cob Interiors
 
Earthy and warm, the inside of cob homes exude an incomparable charm.
Cob Homes
 
Cobbing is making a resurgence. Form clay, sand, water and straw into lumps (or cobs) and create an 'anyform' house.
Herb Walls
 
Vertical herb garden inspiration.
Books As Furniture
 
Creating furniture from books... Due to the glue that binds books along their spine, most paper recyclers will not take books for recycling unless the cover and glue is removed.
Hugelkultur
 
Instead of putting those branches, leaves and grass clippings in bags by the curbside...build a hugel bed.
Keyhole Gardens
 
This sustainable gardening method uses kitchen and garden waste and gray water (or wash water) as food for your vegetables.
Moon Gates
 
A threshold between worlds, (or garden features).
Dry Stone Walls
 
Constructed without mortar or cement. The art of the waller.
Wattle Edging
 
Ancient as gardening. Wattling is fun and attractive.
Wattle Fence
 
Since Neolithic times we have fenced our sheep and vegetables in this easy to make (albeit time consuming) wooden fence.
Earth Sheltered
 
The earth-house uses the ground as an insulating blanket that efficiently protects it from temperature extremes, wind, rain and extreme weather events.
Modern Underground
 
Underground homes with a modern bent. A large thermal mass stabilizes inside temperatures, giving you free heat in the winter, free cooling in the summer.
Pit Greenhouses
 
For those in northern, high altitude or windy climates who wish to grow their food year round. Take advantage of the insulating properties of the Earth.
Stacking Firewood
 
Ingenious ways to stack firewood.
Rocket Mass Heaters
 
The rocket mass heater works on similar properties as a masonry heater. A fast, high heat and oxygen-fed fire burn up the volatile gases and particulates, leaving very little pollution, and turn almost every ounce of wood fuel into energy.
