Pocket Shelters

Just found this awesome Tiny House located in my home state, North Carolina.  Aaron Maret (aaronmaret.com) built this Tiny House out of almost all reclaimed materials.  The result, a house that is both low impact, but aesthetically amazing!

Aaron describes his use of reclaimed materials

I feel pretty wowed by how beautiful and special salvaged wood, specifically, can be. but I also feel challenged by how much extra time in sourcing, processing, processing, processing, and using salvaged wood has added to the construction time line.

It gives me insight into why so many building materials end up in the construction dumpsters… it’s not necessarily because folks don’t care about resource use and conservation. often there simply isn’t the budget to pay for the labor required to manage and process leftovers, scraps, recyclables and the like.
