Reducing Construction waste
We are reusing as much as possible and attempting to preserve the architectural character of the existing home. Rather than tear out the existing concrete/slate steps, we are designing around them and the original fireplace with 1950s Florida brick is being saved.
The original kitchen was taken to another home where it was reconstructed.
The roof rafters were taken to an organic farm and reused for an education center there.
Concrete and wood were placed in separate dumpsters for recycling.
All metal scraps were recycled throughout the construction process.
