In order to keep myself occupied and due to the fact that I have developed a keen interest in a. building my own “green” home and b. alternative energies, recently I found a link to how to build your own solar powered scooter. Not sure that I’ll do this just yet, but it’s definitely something that I would like to do in the future! http://www.treehugger.com/files/2005/04/don_dunkees_diy.php
I also recently read about using old tires as building matierals! LOVE IT! Earthships, which I had never even heard about until a few weeks ago are quite interesting to me, in that they do often use old materials to make a home and a home that can be very functional and eco friendly. I’m hoping in the next 5 years to have the property and know how to get this kinda thing started myself.
