How new is this idea?
Not very, in fact it's as old as building a shelter from fallen trees in ancient times.
Here are some recent trash building projects:

Here is the inconvenient truth about the God of
Man Made Global Warming.

Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, have added a Montecito-area property to their real estate holdings, reports the Montecito Journal.

The couple spent $8,875,000 on an ocean-view villa on 1.5 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains, a real estate source familiar with the deal confirms. The Italian-style house has six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

Sounds nice, I guess Cap and Trade pays well.

Funny how mini-mansions get more press than mega-mansions.
