From Salvaged Car Scraps To A Beautiful House

One of the things we love seeing at DRN is the beauty that can come from salvaged materials that have been ReUsed for something else.  Today we came across this article that shows us how a house in Northern California has been built and designed using car scraps that would otherwise be considered junk.  The architects who thought of this fabulous idea are a husband and wife team, Karl Wanaselja and Cate Leger, of Leger Wanaselja Architecture.  The entire house is made up of over 100 salvaged car roofs, poplar bark, and junked Dodge caravan side windows, among others.  Even the wood furnishings throughout the entire house (inside and out) were made from locally salvaged wood.
