It was a tough group of projects to choose from, but we have 2 category winners and a runner-up for our entries to the national level of The Reuse People’s 2015 contest. Thanks to all that entered — and congrats to:
- Construction & Remodeling Category Winner: Julie Clinton & Clint Boushey for their sauna/guest house building where just about every material was salvaged or repurposed materials – from framing, windows and siding to all the the interior details (top pic).
- Art & Furniture Category Winner: Wayne Chaudiere – who built his Good Tillage table from discarded plow parts and salvaged glass (bottom left).
- Runner up: John Harris and his desk made from a salvaged office door and transom window along with old framing and trim (bottom right).
These three will be entered into the national contest – winners will be announced no later than January 15th, 2016. Stay tuned — and good luck to our local winners!
Update (January, 2016) – Congratulations to John Harris who won FIRST PLACE in the Art & Furniture category with his desk project. And to Wayne Chaudiere for THIRD PLACE in the same category. Way to go Bellingham entrants for a great showing in this national contest!
