(OILPRICE) — Many projects which push the bounds of traditional thinking and ways of doing things are often not about the acceptance of the actual project as a whole, but the development of new technologies used in the overall project.

That is precisely the point with a recent venture in which a team of UK engineers will build a house entirely from waste, using materials such as old toothbrushes, cut-up jeans, video cassettes, and mattress filling.

The idea is very similar to a prototype building that Kevin McCloud, the presenter of Channel 4 series Grand Designs, created during a 2010 exhibition in London, and has actually been named “The House that Kevin Built.”
