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.
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.
Insect Hotels
 
Call them bug condos, insect hotels, insect habitats, wildlife stacks, insect boxes, insect houses, insect walls, wild bee walls, insect accommodation, wild bee houses, solitary bee walls or wild bienenhaus. Wildlife habitat is rapidly disappearing. Building beneficial insects a special habitat will help your garden and the bugs.
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.
Living Willow Hedges
 
Willow cuttings called 'withies' easily root in either water or moist soil. Plant in late winter and come July you'll have a privacy screen.
Hedge Laying
 
Over two thousand years older than chain link.

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.
