Kent Griswold reported on this a few years ago on his Tiny House Blog. He said that he “… recently had the opportunity to review a DVD called Greening the Cube: 100 Mile Housing and wanted to share my thoughts about this unique idea of building one’s home from sources only available to you within 100 miles.
This is a feature-length documentary film that covers the efforts of Canadian green builders Pete Matheson and Sean Sands as they construct homes from sustainable building products that are nearby.
They look at taking natural resources that are near you and creating a home using those materials. They also take into consideration different approaches in combining food production, meeting energy needs, responsible management of the waste stream, and other considerations that are pertinent to our homes and lifestyles.”
