Recycled Houses - Welcome to the Commotion
- The Phoenix Commotion is a local building initiative created to prove that constructing homes with recycled and salvaged materials has a viable place in the building industry. This process uses only apprentice labor and teaches marketable skills to anyone with a work ethic who is willing to swing a hammer. By keeping labor costs low and using donated or found materials, the homes created are truly affordable. No two are alike due to the myriad of materials used, so there is an artistic element that makes Phoenix Commotion homes unique.
We target single parents, artists, and families with low incomes. We require the homeowner to be involved with the planning and construction of his or her own home. The result is a person who is empowered, not only by the useful knowledge of building skills, but by the opportunity to become part of a community as a vested participant.

How to build a Solar Panel DIY Geiger Research Institute of Sustainable Building
Promoting natural building, and sustainable design and development, through research, training, education and consulting services. Over one billion people lack decent shelter, according to the United Nations. As our forests and other natural resources are rapidly depleted, and as global warming worsens, our mission becomes more evident and even more pressing. The Geiger Research Institute of Sustainable Building is devoted to finding solutions to the world’s housing problems. We believe the answer lies in education — helping others help themselves. Please join us in our efforts to reate a more just, sustainable world. “If everyone makes a difference, the world will be different.” Building with Earthbags (sometimes called sandbags)
Sandbags have long been used, particularly by the military, for creating strong, protective barriers, or for flood control. The same reasons that make them useful for these applications carry over to creating housing. Since the walls are so substantial, they resist all kinds of severe weather (or even bullets) and also stand up to natural calamities such as earthquakes and floods. They can be erected simply and quickly with readily available components, for very little money Dream Green Homes
