Lighting and passive cooling go hand in hand in our home. The front windows let in light and air.
The air gets sucked out through the stacked roof. We arranged the roof so when the sun sets it bounces off the metal roof giving excellent lighting until the sun is below the horizon.
Wine bottles make up the fruit of our Baobab tree. The necks are used to hang our clothes in our room.
Windows can be made by filling water containers with clean water and a cap full of bleach. I added a bit of pipe glue when I screwed on the caps just in case. These can be embedded in the cob or wrapped over if making a earthbag house. When the sun shines directly through them they cast rainbows throughout the room.
