One Man's Rubbish Is Another's Residence

Some people look at a piece of clay and see a sculpture. Some people look at a shipping container and see three bedrooms and a walk-in kitchen. While these homes, some dreamy, some stunning, some a little whacky do differ widely in many aspects, one is the same: they repurpose materials in amazingly creative ways.

Would you live in an old jumbo jet? Maybe a silo? How about a house made out of mushrooms? These interesting abodes, designed to save natural resources, may just change your mind.
