The mission of the reHOME Project is to demonstrate that with thoughtful design and rigorous sourcing strategies, we can reduce construction waste, keep materials out of our landfills and provide affordable housing for our communities.
Recycled – Innovative Design
The Morales Farm houses will be sourced and constructed from recycled or repurposed materials. Firms involved are contributing design and construction services totally pro bono. State-of-the-art software has been designed to specifically locate, vet and catalog construction materials. Storage containers housing donated materials are also provided free of charge by the reHome Team.
Structures placed on the Morales public farmland site are required by code to be permanent. To accommodate this requirement, but to enable possible future relocation, the team designed an inventive non-typical foundation of diamond piers that can easily be cut, and the structures relocated.
