My blog hit 20,000 all time views today. Thanks for looking at it.
My idea is to build a 100% waste free eco home using a recycled 20′ shipping container. During the process I will be documenting it in high definition video.
Watch a short video about the project and you can also donate if you like it here:
I want to show the world that for a little money a huge difference can be made to help the environment and be affordable. This house will be used as a showcase for alternative energy and a model for low income areas, off grid areas and developing nations. It can also be a prototype for disaster relief as units like these could be delivered almost anywhere in the world within days. The completely sustainable eco home will be built using the following materials and including the following amenities.
20′ used shipping container
The house will be completely self-sufficient and sustainable
The house will contain an eco-friendly composting toilet
The house will include a rain water catchment system
Solar Hot water
DC water pump
Zero Waste Construction
Here is a break from my normal blogging. This is a short video I put together of myself and my friend Sara Volcano Surfing in Nicaragua.
One morning I woke up to a family of Howler Monkeys eating flowers in some trees at the container home. I was able to catch them on tape in this short clip. You can hear their distinctive howls towards the end of the video..

I have created a new video ad for my company. Please check It out its just over a minute long.
Some new announcements:
I have been working on a new and improved website. The site is a work in progress but I believe it is much better than my old one.
I will also start blogging soon about a really cool renovation project at Casa Llanta (tire home) in the Carizal. For those of you who are familiar with the concept it is an Earthship.
