Is it possible to build an entire house out of recycled materials?

    Yes, there are a number of styles that incorporate large volumes of recycled materials although most are not 100 percent recycled.  One of the most common recycled designs that is superior to conventional techniques in may ways, is the earthship house.  Earthships are made out of stacked automobile tires, rammed earth, and stucco.  They insulate well, are highly durable, and require little specialized labor.  One of these houses could be created from completely recycled materials if one was to scrupulously collect used windows, old plumbing, corrugated aluminum etc.
