A free (well almost) solar heater made from junk and soda cans!

Perfect for tiny homes and cabins?

I’ve messed with similar systems in the past, as well as with a good variety of solar cookers (some of which we just might mess with in our 2011 Relaxshacks.com Hands-On Tiny Shelter/House Building Workshop), but here’s a concept (especially the FREE part) that I always thought was great- and THEGOODHUMAN.com explains this solar heater build quite nicely with a photo gallery. I’ve long planned to film a micro-solar heating video, so who knows, I might finally get up off my butt and do so (when I finish about five other episodes and projects I’m involved with).
