Man Builds Passive and Active Solar Home, and Converts Car to Electric
I tend to think of myself as a fairly resourceful chap - keeping my own bees, growing mushrooms, and making ridiculous amounts of compost. But it's guys like Jon Weber of Boise, Idaho who make me feel like a lazy good-for-nothing. Not only has this man designed and built his own passive and active solar home, but he converted his junked Festiva into an electric vehicle. Click below the fold to take a tour of Weber's house and ride in his car - courtesy of the ever wonderful folks at Peak Moment TV (the same people who brought us this video on safe, legal gray water recycling).
