House Of Trash

See how beautiful and efficient a house of trash can be. Annie and Jay Warmke in Ohio live in a wonderful House Of Trash so special they even give tours of the place. All the structures on their property are built with reclaimed materials, and actual 'garbage'. There are 1,400 old tires packed with mud, along with bottles, cans and plastic jugs providing insulation. They even bought a barn for $200 at auction just to use the wood! As this couple says, there's a lot of garbage out there to put to good use. They have a plastic bottle greenhouse for year round food production. Both structures manage their own heating, cooling and water needs without any external help.
