50 Houses: Materials

September 21, 2008

Houses made out of the remnants of other houses: Tiny Texas Houses.  Everything from the 50 Houses project will be reused in a similar fashion.  Everything that comes out of a house, and isn’t rotted and totally ruined will be put back in a house someday.

Roof shingles made from fly-dumped car tires: CoLab.  We want to think creatively to find cheap, sustainable solutions to basic problems.  Here is a great example.

Still on the lookout for similar ideas…
