This is something youll have to see to believe. Its a house built green from the ground up. Were talking about old beer cans, water bottles, tires, and plenty of mud. Used tires and wires, then mixed with just a bit of wood will soon be called home for the Stanley family in Rogers. Homeowner Mark Stanley says, “Everything here came out of a burn pile except for the roof. Thats because of the straight dimensional lumber for the roof.” Mark and his wife, Kristine Stanley, say when they bought this piece of land, they thought to themselves, “If were going to do it, then we need to do it right.” With quite a bit of research and planning, theyre inching closer to completing their dream home. Only this one is literally made from scratch. As for the plumbing, theyre even saving on their water bill. Two cisterns will be used to collect rain water. Everything from watering the plants, to plumbing, and even bathing will be put back into the ground. As for the walls, its all about reducing, reusing, and recycling water bottles and tires. The Stanleys say going green is contagious. And that you dont have to be an experienced builder to make a green dream home come true.
