Liquid Waste Water Treatment

The liquid waste water treatment system is a containment, treatment and distribution system for liquid waste water.

This system is similar to the wetlands concept which has long been used in exterior applications for thousands of years by humans and nature.

This system differs from the wetlands approach in that it treats and processes the ‘untreated greywater’ inside the building.

Bottle Bricks & Bottle Walls

How to Make Bottle Bricks for Bottle Walls.

We will learn and build a shed made of bottle walls from bottle bricks.

Bottle bricks allow light to shine through a wall, and color the light the color of the glass used in the brick. 

A bottle brick is made up of the bottom 4″ or 5″ of a bottle (depending on the size of your bottle brick and thickness of your wall).
