Cheap materials for building your house

Most people are familiar with Freecycle, a Yahoo local mailing list for giving or getting free all sorts of household and personal items. There are also material exchanges for more industrial type exchanges. You can get items at low cost from business that have excesses. Originally they would have thrown them away.

If you have every done any type of industrial dumpster diving, it boggles your mind the stuff companies throw away at least in the US, or maybe I should say used to. Hopefully they are all getting into these material exchange programs.

Just look up "materials exchange" plus your local state, city or country to find one near you. They are all over the world. And don't forget craigslist.com which is also local.
