Garbage Warrior

The other night we watched a wonderful documentary. It's called Garbage Warrior. It's all about a guy who makes self sustaining houses out of recycled materials. He's an architect in New Mexico. He had to jump through hoops for years to build his structures. For awhile he lost his license. He actually traveled to other countries to help them make structures, but couldn't help people in the US after Hurricane Katrina. Why? Because he lost his license.

It''s a wonderful watch. It's free, but it is just like watching a movie.

Dad really wants to build a studio in our backyard that's self sustaining. An addition would be a studio cat. Because of me; he can't have one in the house.

I'm familiar with this guy. He built a lot of those homes in Taos and near Bosque Farms and Ruidoso as I recall. Since his work was not in compliance with code he had a lot of trouble with the bureaucrats. Interesting concept though.

It's amazing how quickly the government is to shut down someone who is trying to better the planet. I hope he keeps trucking, building as many structures for others as possible. Sounds like an amazing man!

I see a lot of beer bottle bottoms in the picture with him. Bet he can find those in dumps by the thousands.

It's amazing the talent some people have. Pity he lost his license when building was so needed.

This sounds very familiar. If I haven't seen the documentary, I've seen something very similar.
