Recycled Eco Houses
Environment change is our latest concern and people have become
conscious about its adverse effects. So, an eco-friendly approach
combined with creativity and courage can result in beautiful recycled
houses that one would love to own.
You just need to think a bit and with
an eco-friendly plan in mind you can turn the waste materials
like old tires, bottles, newspapers sea boats, submarines,
old shipping containers and much more into use.
Recycled Silo House
All you need is inspiration and innovativeness. A lot of architects
have been involved in making such houses and believe it or not,
they are a huge success. French architects, Claire Helene Drouin
and Jean Marie Sanchez, are amongst those creative people and
have converted containers carried by cranes on the cliff into
a luxurious house. Nobody could make out that the house is made
up of 15 recycled containers and the best part about the house
is that they are movable. This house situated in Marseille, France
is a perfect model of recycled homes.
Similarly, British artist Heather and Ivan Morison has created
a wooden caravan. The caravan comes out of a fire engine, named
Green Goddess, was used by the British army long time back but
has been converted into a beautiful home by the two commendable
people. The caravan can be seen moving around Flokestone and the
interior is amazing with all facilities inside, a small kitchen
and other most required amenities. It has a beautiful library
where one can read books sitting on a couch with a cup of coffee.
Dan Phillips, a 64-year-old man is a proud owner of many such
houses made up of waste material. He has been building low-cost
recycled houses with recouped materials. The materials he uses
are 80-percent sourced from other construction projects that have
been left in a trash. He sometimes picks up the material from
the road lying abandoned.
Amazingly, he used wine corks for flooring and it turned out
a beautiful concept. Thousands of wine drinkers would not have
been aware that their wine corks were actually reused. He even
used the base of the wine bottles and placed them on the doors.
He has used the osage orange wood as a railing in the house.
House Made of Recycled Metal, Concrete and Wood
Looking at his creditable efforts, the officials worked together
with him and now they have a warehouse where builders and other
city people can demolish their waste and that can be reused by
the creative minds.
There is a scrap house in San Francisco that is made up of total
waste material. The house was made by a team of architects, engineers
and contractors and shown off to celebrate World Environment Day
Elberton, Geogia has a recycled house made up of repaired doors.
Flooring, walls, and windows everything is made up of doors. London
has its newspaper house, made up of rolled newspaper.
Similarly, people use tires, bottles and scrap wood. Also, boats,
airplanes and submarines have been used in some places which are
of no use now but have been converted into green housing.
When it comes of recycled houses a little imagination can go
a long way.
