5 Gallon Bucket Swamp Cooler DIY Project - Cooling your tent or van. The basic idea for the bucket cooler is just a smaller version of Yellowdog's cooler made from a rubbermade garbage can. An evaporative cooler will reduce the temperature by 20 to 30 degrees. All the ideas that people came up with on this thread are a perfect example of radical self relience! (Bravo!!!)
"The kitchen also features a larder, which is designed to use natural processes to keep ‘living food’ fresh. A twin-walled terra cotta evaporative cooler and vegetable storage system is built into the dining table. The compartments and chambers vary in wall thicknesses and volumes, and are designed to keep different types of food at different optimal temperatures. Above the table is a ceramic garden and larder where vegetable groups are grown and stored."
