This is so incredibly cool! I have always maintained that Americans can live very well by gleaning the things that other Americans either relegate to the dumpster or give away. This Scrap House is validation of that and something I've always wanted to try. The really cool part is that it was dreamed up by some high school students who found the school had no budget to buy supplies. Necessity being the mother of invention, they became Dumpster Divers and are finding what they need to make their plans a reality. I have dived...dove...climbed into dumpsters at construction sites and it is amazing what the crews toss.
