The Scrap House

The Free Press, How appropriate. | August 29, 2009

Jordan Tomberlin recently did a story on the house for the Island Free Press. While the name of the paper might be the most appropriate for the project, it’s also my favorite article so far I believe.  Jordan did a great job writing it, so thanks to her!

We’re getting closer to being able to move the house. I found somebody willing/able to do it, so we’re not far away. I’ll post any progress on that front.

    • Interesting you should write at this junction, as yesterday was the first day anything of substance has happened. The house, amazingly, got moved yesterday. On the back of a dolly rig, it got towed the 22 miles to its permanent resting place. Sadly, I wasn’t in town, so I don’t have photos at the moment. But as soon as I’m there I’ll make a new post. Thanks for the continued interest! Merry Christmas! -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.
