Concept

The purpose of the Rescued Homes Project is to look at our current system of waste removal and the impact of creating new recovery streams. I believe that small houses can be built using 100% recovered materials and still meet the CSA and BC building code. I plan to create a series of “homes” that build on what was learned with each revision. The hope that a final full scale tiny home can be built as an example of what can be created from the gaps in our system.

The Rescued Materials Small Urban Home is meant to be used as an alternative to living in a tent for people who find themselves homeless. It is on wheels so that it can be moved around the city, but offers the security of a closed structure that a tent can't.

Larger materials inventory, human scale building and weather proofing.
