I absolutely love when people reuse old things, but these shutters are out of this world! I've seen some old shutters in Newmarket that I really want to put on my walls and ceiling now.

Wow! I have "Shutter Love" and you have given me so much inspiration! Thank you <3
 
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Masonry Wood Cookstoves
     
    Masonry heaters can incorporate cook stoves. And cook stoves can act as masonry heaters for small homes.
  • Masonry Heaters with Ovens
     
    Bake ovens can be either white (the fire is in another box, usually below the oven) or black (the fire is in the same compartment as the food being cooked).
  • Masonry Heaters
     
    Heat, not pollution. The cleanest burning wood stoves have been around for centuries, yet have taken a backseat to metal wood stoves and other polluting energy sources for far too long. Time for a revival!
  • Indoor Pizza Ovens
     
    If you live in a cool climate, you might as well investigate adding a masonry heater along side your pizza oven. Or at least understanding them so that you might take advantage of exhaust heat.
  • River Rock Fireplaces
     
    Although lots of mass and beautiful, most heat goes straight up the flue. Build a conventional fireplace for beauty alone, build a masonry fireplace for heat.
  • Container Homes
     
    Somewhere around 30 million steel shipping containers exist today. 8 feet wide by 8.5 feet high, and either 20 or 40 feet long, they have been the globally standardized transportation module since 1956.
  • Outdoor Earth Ovens
     
    Examples of pure cob and adobe, and refractory castable cement over bricks.
  • Outdoor Brick Ovens
     
    Recycle some old bricks...into an oven.
  • Outdoor Masonry Ovens
     
    Build an outdoor oven with local stone and DIY skills for a few hundred dollars. Or, buy an oven kit and have it veneered for a few thousand.

  • Pebble Mosaics Underfoot

  • Steam Bent Shingles
     
    Cedar shingles mimic thatch.
  • Recycling Old Doors
     
    Old wooden doors look good just about anywhere.
