The Online Workshop
The Online Workshop's information on alternative building techniques vindicates the little pigs' choice of building materials by demonstrating how sustainable resources, such as tires, straw bales, and cordwood, can be used to build comfortable, energy-efficient homes. The Online Workshop contains images and information describing an interesting variety of home designs constructed from alternative materials. The Workshop is part of the The Yellow Mountain Institute for Sustainable Living , a not-for-profit organization located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Central Virginia.
