Kevin heads to Vegas, where truckloads of glass bottles from the bars on the Strip are crushed and combined with fly ash in Greenstone to create an almost 100% recycled cast concrete product. As a specially molded baroque decorative element, this material transforms the facade of the manufacturing facility into a huge desert replica of the English castle Swarkstone Manor. Next, Amy checks out a tent for your attic and a drill bit that'll go through just about anything, and Kevin has found a portable workbench that turns out to be an extra set of hands for the job. Finally, Amy heads for San Francisco Bay, home to hippies, poets, artists and others simply seeking affordable waterfront living. Sausalito's community of nearly 400 houseboats is a floating smorgasbord of creative housing solutions.
