Filed Under: 100-Mile Home
You might have heard of the 100-mile diet or the locavores movement—those discerning eaters who try to only eat foods that come from a 100-mile radius. (But if you’re not living in California that can mean living like a Russian peasant on nuts and dried fruits.) Now there is a new local movement, the 100-Mile House, where all the materials to build the house come from (you guessed it) 100-mile radius of the property. The site wants people to register and share the creative ways they build a home so others can learn from the experience, hoping to promote the open sourced home. We’re excited to see the submissions and really hope this trend takes off.
