  1. I'm not going off grid again anytime soon but I am interested in the use of recycled materials in remote areas . I keep pondering using reground styrofoam waste as bulking material for a building structure that is 'precast' into large beams. It could be very cheap and durable and be better than treating as waste. Do you know of anyone using styrofoam, pallets, shredded plastic in such a way? I really like your house especially the aspect of fireproof in the forest.
