The Scrap House

The Irish Jig (Saw Puzzle) | May 1, 2009

Well, we didn’t have the 14 foot piece we needed for the ridgeboard. So we couldn’t do the roof like I hoped. That’ll come monday. But, we did get plywood up on the back wall. Fun using scrap plywood, aye?


Looks seamless right? Like we’re professionals, right? Can’t even tell it was scrapped, aye? Well.. here are the seams. Oy vey.


Yup. 18 pieces.  ‘Nuff said.

  2. WOW. It’s looking great. I love the reuse of the scrap materials too.

    • Thanks! And BTW, I really appreciate you posting us on your blog. And yes, digging that out of the sand was one of the weirder missions we’ve been on for this house, but whatever works, right? -Ted

This blog is dedicated to an experiment a group of three other fellow students and I are doing at our school in Buxton, NC. My Drafting III class and I set out to see if we could build a house for free. It's small, but functional. All the materials come out of dumpsters. And most of all, it's working.
