The Scrap House

Judging Panel | June 4, 2010


There, now that that is over with. I found some nice panelling at the dump; not sure where it came from but it’s mostly in good shape. I’d say it’s equivilent to about 6 full pieces. Not enough for the whole house, but seeing as how I’ve had a hard time finding drop clothes this will help fill in the gaps. I’m thinking of using it for the kitchen and bathroom.

    • Yeah; Low Boat got me all of the scrap Styrofoam from their factory so I’m gonna use that. We need to hang out some time; I tried to call you/go by your house a week or so ago but couldn’t find you. I’m going back to SC tomorrow but I’m sure I’ll be back in town soon enough…

  2. my phone for some reason does not tell me when someone has called or left a message until i look into the missed call or message folder on my phone, its really annoying. anyways take it easy in SC, and dont forget to look for housing materials!

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.
