One of my newest favorite blogs is The Good Human. It’s run by a fellow named David up in Taos, New Mexico. Normally he doesn’t cover how-to topics but the other day I spotted this post on a little solar wall heater he made out of empty aluminum cans. It was a bit involved to make but seems to heat small spaces nicely. Perfect for a tiny house right? I might try building one of these for the Tiny Free House. Read how he made this solar can heater at The Good Human.

I think I’d suggested this while you were designing the solar house a few weeks back. Isn’t it a great idea?
(Oops, I don’t mean I suggested the idea for it, but I’d listed a link to that idea from some other site.)
No worries 🙂
I think you’re right… I do remember you mentioning something like this. I was just excited to see it. I think I might cover more homemade gadgets like this too.
That’d be a great idea. Human innovation is incredible (as opposed to dog or banana innovation, apparently). I’d like to see that.
I don’t suppose you’d happen to recall reading or posting something along the following lines: I thought I’d read something on here about a “washing machine” that is like a hand-cranked barrel that is small, and so in, like, 5 minutes, apparently, a load of laundry can be washed “by hand” in that energy efficient device. I’d love to get one.
I have a better solution on how to put the cans togheter. The video is in in swedish but you can see what I am doing.
