5 Funky Green Homes: A Cave, Honeycomb, Trash Home, and 2 Castles
One of the best parts of editing Natural Home was finding houses that push the conventional edgeand meeting the crazy geniuses who built them.

For all of them, furthering the green building conversation is imperativeand their similarities stop there. My favorite funky houses range from a cozy cliffside dwelling to a full-on castle built from recycled Styrofoam blocks (which, sadly, withstands wildfires no better than any other material).
