More pallet/small house designs


These concepts seem to be some college kids' ideas on saving the world. Their statements are too anti-capitalism for me - but I can respect a cool design. From

More college kids with "Save the Planet" ideas. These guys are more environmental than socialist. From some architecture students at Texas Tech. From

The Pallet King of Guémené - Wherever that is...
