The Commons

Our buddy Kevbo’s buddy Garrett and his brother Dustin have embarked on a laudable (and enviable) project in Portland. They bought a house on CraigsList which they have deconstructed (because it wasn’t so much demolished as picked apart so that they can reuse as much as possible) and rebuilding in an attempt to create the first residential house in the nation to meet the standards of the Living Building Challenge. You can take a look at the project on their Flickr page, their websites, the commons and res communis design, or you can just Google their names and goggle at how much press they’re getting!
