Home Built From Junkyard Car Parts And Poplar Tree Bark.

Thanks again Faircompanies.com for posting another Macgyver inspired video. This one is about a couple in Berkeley that built a house out of old cart parts and furniture factory waste tree bark. The builders/designers, Karl Wanaselja and Cate Leger, spent months searching their local junkyards for the right parts including the side windows of Dodge Caravans which became the awnings for their home. Car roof sections and Poplar tree bark was used as siding in this shining example of junkyard Jubbling.

Cate Leger and Karl Wanaselja designed their home in their backyard office that was built out of an old shipping container. Their goal was to use precycled material before it went through the energy intensive recycling process of getting melted down.

Watching the video of their completed house reminded me of a local home [pictured below] that had Cate and Karl duplicated, might’ve saved them quite a bit of time.
