Homeowners in Brisbane, Australia, just received keys to the Hill End Ecohouse, a six-star home designed by Riddel Architecture and built by Peagram Builders. Located on a small lot, the Ecohouse incorporates 95% of salvaged material from the previously existing 1930s home and a total of about 80% recycled content. Ecohouse also stores 71,000 liters of water and treats gray water on-site for toilet use.
