What Would You Use To Build Your House? Still Spring Cleaning.

"Hoping friends and neighbors will see their home as a commitment to caring for the planet, the Santa Cruz family built their home's entire structure and all of furnishings (including the bed above) within from plastic bottles, aluminum cans, Tetra Pak boxboard and other recycled goods."

Then, the man up the road from me, in Huntsville, TX, who makes houses out of anything, even bones:

Well, my house is just made of common sticks and lumber, but is still has to be spring cleaned!
Only two rooms of the house are carpeted, so Jay cleaned the living room carpet.   I vacuumed my bedroom really well, and got some more food down Maddie, their finicky Yorkie, while he cleaned the recliner in the living room, and then he cleaned the bedroom carpet, too.
Ray vacuumed my van, but it didn't get washed as his back started hurting.

So we still have to clean the area rugs, then mop-and-shine the other room's linoleum floors, but we had had enough for today.
