An environmental activist who built entire an eco-home for less than $1,500 using almost all re-purposed materials has explained how he created the house on such a small budget. 

Rob Greenwood, who lives in Orlando, was determined to build himself a small home, just 100 square-feet, that would accommodate everything he needs in life, without generating a large amount of waste.

Using innovative space saving designs and carrying out all the building work himself, he was left with a homely cabin complete with bed, food preparation area and storage compartments, made entirely from second hand materials.

Showing off what he describes as a fermentation station, he points to a few shelves containing home-grown vegetable and pickle jars, along with some honey and cider.

He cleverly uses space beneath his bed for more storage, and then shows viewers the honey he harvested from the bees he keeps.
