New building-integrated photovoltaics or BIPVs blend almost seamlessly with traditional roofing materials.
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.
Sand, clay and hay. Mix it with your hands, your feet or a Bobcat. Sculpt in place.
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.
Earthy and warm, the inside of cob homes exude an incomparable charm.
Cobbing is making a resurgence. Form clay, sand, water and straw into lumps (or cobs) and create an 'anyform' house.
Vertical herb garden inspiration.
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.

Ingenious ways to stack firewood.
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.
Masonry heaters can incorporate cook stoves. And cook stoves can act as masonry heaters for small homes.
