Adams Center, NY, Apr 22, 2009 — Jim Juczak and his family are proud of their Jefferson County home. And they don't mind if people say it's trashy. Most of it is made of junk. Juczak lives near Adams Center and runs Woodhenge, an off-grid community and sustainability school. He's one of the featured speakers at the Sustainable Energy Fair in Canton this weekend. Juczak is a lecturer, tinkerer, gardener, alternative energy do-it-yourself expert, and green builder. He spoke with Todd Moe about his 18-sided home made of wood and papercrete - a paper sludge from a local mill. He says 80 % of his home is made of salvaged materials.
