Tour Ann's 2-in-1 House

From Re-nest: Our site that covers abundant design for green homes

Ann built much of this house herself using materials salvaged from the rotting cabin that used to be on the site. It's designed as a part-time vacation house for herself and a full-time house for her mother, and every inch of the house is as carefully designed as it was built. Check it out.

We've also recently looked at three different ways to compost indoors—which do you use? We admire small vessels made of reclaimed and recycled materials and turned by hand on a lathe, and there's still time to snag a hot AT t-shirt by sending in an idea for our Creative Reuse series. As always: links after the jump.

A simple technique makes extraordinary objects in the hands of artist Sarah Thirlwell, who uses a lathe to turn scraps of wood and plastic into sculptural vessels.

Don't have a yard for compost? That's no longer an excuse. Here are the best 3 indoor compost solutions.

We're still on the hunt for reader ideas from our Creative Reuse series. We've blogged more than ten reader ideas so far, and we'd love to see how you reuse things around the house.
