tree, move a house!
It may not seem
worthwhile to move an entire house to a new site, but sometimes a move pays off.
recycled house and moving it to your own site is good idea for a few reasons.
The first is that the home is already built; you only need to purchase the
house, pay for the move and the installation of electrical wiring, plumbing, and
a new foundation. The other is that it's great for the environment. You're not
cutting down more trees to make a brand new house, but rather using existing
materials that may otherwise be demolished or disposed of.
An average structure consumes about 100 cubic
yards of landfill space. Recycling these structures saves 5 million cubic yards
of landfill space per year while saving 2.5 million trees!
