If there every was an example of a great use of reclaimed materials to build and amazing reclaimed cabin this would be it.
The Sunset House in West Virginia was built by Lilah and Nick using lumber reclaimed from a barn on their property. The wood was cut and milled from the land by the previous owner many years ago. All the windows are reclaimed from junkyards over their history of thrifting together.
When building on a tight budget there are many ways to source used, free, minimal cost materials even in an urban environment like Metro Vancouver, Sunshine Coast or the Gulf Islands.
Westcoast Outbuildings works with a vast database of developers, Junkers, Pickers, demolition experts and downright quirky people to source some cool materials for any reclaimed cabin project.
