No, they didn't forget to use a spirit-level when building, its just a not-so-hot photo...and the only running one I could find on the site😦

Here’s a cool little blog on two women building their back-to-the-land dream house from a huge array of free and recycled materials. http://www.builtfromtrash.com hasn’t been updated in awhile, but the story is still intriguing. It looks like they’ve built a cool/cozy little homestead too.

Here’s the project and site’s aim, in the words of its authors:

     Our blog tells the tale of how we built a tiny house using as construction materials, old tires, newspapers, bottles, used lumber, scrap  metal and a free house trailer. When we bought the land, we were in our early 50s. As of this writing (May 2010) we’ve been at it for 5 years and are now 55 and 56 respectively.

The duo also chose to build/live in West Virginia because of the state’s natural and untouched beauty. (I’ve been there on tour with a band long ago, and it is true. I’ll make a bet that West Virginia land comes cheap too!)

I really admire people who are willing to work with whatever they have available to them. I hope they’re continuing on their creative path and will begin sharing it again on their blog.
