Kauai Outdoor Living

I like the way this inexpensive connecting roof provides so much more useable space.

I love the simplicity of this small home. The calmness. The use of the covered section for outdoor living. I'd take this over a McMansion anyday.

I lived like this for 17 years. loved it really. Even our kitchen had tin roof and open air. 2 big long church pews that were thrown away and I caught 'em....(ha ha)...and I made a long table to feed our family ....not all of the 14 children home at the same time, but mostly 10 plus so many wonderful friends came to visit and eat with us. what a marvelous life I've lived. yes, I loved this photo as well. thanks for posting.

For green, comfortable homes, Mali turns to mud


Building a house in the poorest villages of southern Mali has for years involved cutting trees for timber frames and struggling to save cash for a corrugated iron roof.

Now families are turning to an alternative: Nubian-style domed mud-brick homes that are cheaper, protect fast-vanishing local forests and make homes cooler in the worsening summer heat

Mali turns to environmentally friendly mud homes to save trees
