This Man Builds His House from Recycled Timber

HomeArchitectureThis Man Builds His House from Recycled Timber

Geoff built an amazing eco friendly house from recycled timber.

When Geoff got right out of Architecture school, he bought a decent piece of land in BC, Canada, in order to get some experience in his craft and create his own home – the Fuego Retreat.

At first, he only put up a tent to sleep in and a tool shed to keep his tools and work. All the wood in this building is from old buildings – which is one of the reasons it took him 14 years to build it.

The majority of the lumber used to build the home came from the old Super-Valu grocery store in Penticton which was condemned and demolished over a decade ago.
