5 Extraordinary DIY Eco Homes


Eco friendly and sustainable living is all the rage these days. Reducing our carbon footprint and preserving the earth for the generations coming after us is a very important. We only have one planet! These houses have taken “eco” to whole new heights. Amazing heights! Don’t get confused, these aren’t hovels; far from it. Being off the grid doesn’t mean roughing it and going without modern amenities. It used to but not any more.

These houses are so clever. The hobbit houses (You know, Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit) are built into hills and blend into their surroundings. The Cob Buildings are similar. The other houses featured here are Earthships, Earthbag, and Cordwood. I’ve never heard of these! I grew up off the grid with solar power and gravity fed springs. My house didn’t look anything like these. Jealous! Check out these other ways from SFGATE to cut your carbon footprint here.
