Reuse Everything Experiement February 19, 2010

Posted by 2030arch in LEED STUDY GROUP.

Witness this first ever attempt to reuse 100% of an old dilapidated home into a new home construction project.

The REX House, located at 2030 SE REX St. Portland Oregon, will be featured during the Ultimate Open House – produced by the HBA April 18th-20th and April 25th-27th. Continuous local media coverage including KPTV (Fox affiliate), The Oregonian newspaper, and KEX radio.

Shannon Quimby, published author, HGTV Designer and one of the nation’s top Renew-it experts, takes on the biggest reuse project of her career – infusing 100% of an old dilapidated home into new home construction. Her goal: share with everyone, the way to recycle and keep our landfills from overflowing with useable construction materials. “I’m determined to show that with ingenuity, reclaiming an old home is practical, fun and a potential money saver.”

Not only is the old house going to be infused into the new, but the landscaping too. All old growth trees and plants are going to be transplanted. The neighborhood history will be saved too!
