REX: The Reuse Everything Experiment

REX: The Reuse Everything Experiment

This project makes us feel a bit better about teardowns. (That's the jargon for when a small house is levelled and replaced with a much bigger house.)

Shannon Quimby, "one of the nation's top renew-it experts," had a goal to reduce waste in her construction project, and it looks like she's doing a good job so far. You can follow the process over at her blog...

Called the REX project, the title's a play on the street name in Southeast Portland where the house is located. We spotted a bit more information, including the image above, on the ecohaus website, where Shannon is buying some of her materials.
