Inexpensive Home Building

Cut through the jargon and nonsense of home building and house construction by starting from zero dollars and trying to figure best-value bang-for-your-buck when choosing construction methods or construction materials. My research might answer some of your questions and at other times perhaps you have the knowledge or experience to post the answers to my questions and thereby help others too. The goal is an affordable and sustainable home for all.

Piezo Electricity Co-Gen Idea

1. The usual internal-combustion engine (ICE) co-generation idea tries to put a waste byproduct (heat) to use.
2. Another engine waste product is noise (vibration).
3. A piezo-electric generator would (a) put the waste noise to use
(extracting electricity from sound) and (b) dampen the noise nuisance
(law of conservation of energy; absorb vibration).
4. Funnels or concentrators might focus sound onto the piezo(s).

This idea might be misguided or impractical but I'd be interested in
