While this 2008 Parade Home (built by Eberle Custom Homes and located in the Southbridge addition of Waunakee, WI) isn’t my personal taste, I can certainly admire and appreciate what went into creating something so original.
To quote from this home’s Parade listing at the link above: “All of the re-milled Douglas fir wood timbers throughout the home are reclaimed from the Naval Air Station and the Ford Assembly Plant in Chicago. These timbers are more than 100 years old, which proves to everyone that many items we take for granted can be restored to yet another use. Also, the exterior stone has a history as well. The stone came from Maxwell Street in Chicago. Many of the items in the home are 80 percent and above recycled materials. This home proves that even reclaimed items (wood, stone, etc.) can be a thing of beauty the second time around.”
