In this ever changing world the need for alternative power systems and building supplies has been increasing. By making more environmentally-conscious choices on how humans leave a footprint on Earth will benefit future generations to come along with advancing technology further. This idea will open more doors for options for the more environmentally concerned. Some possibilities for building supplies to be researched would be recycled plastic, jeans, bamboo, and hemp. This study aims to investigate that houses can be built by utilizing renewable and recycled materials while also harnessing the sun and wind for power. The main hypothesis states that building a house using completely renewable and/or recycled materials is possible while also implementing a solar and wind array for electrical power all while building in a regular neighborhood.
