This home, inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House, is big on custom and low on waste. It took 2 years to build -- and it was worth the wait. Check it out.

Also, we're looking at furniture sculpted from bike parts, a Cuisinart countertop water filtration system, how to make dish scrubbies from old T-shirts, and 6 green furniture strategies from our House Tours. Get all the links after the jump.

What do you think? Is this water filtration device hot, or just a waste of resources?

We're still giving away free AT T-shirts for your creative reuse ideas. Caroline is making dish scrubbers out of old T-shirts.

When it's time for a new couch ... how do you make sure you're getting a green one? Here are 6 green furniture strategies from our House Tours.
