Name: Lara and Adam Location: South Austin, Texas Size: 930 square feet Years lived in: 6 months, owned Not counting the couches and chairs, nearly all the furniture in this home was built by its owners! Pallets, old fences...any reclaimed wood Lara and Adam found around their neighborhood became building material for their home's contents. And they saved a lot of money by salvaging fencing they took down during the renovation and other wood scraps. From those they made bed frames, headboards, shelving, poster frames, tables, and lighting. "Anytime we realize we need something…a side table, a laundry hamper, a mirror, a ceiling light…I'll do a quick inventory of what we've got laying around and figure out how I can use it to fit the space," admits Adam. It's this can-make attitude that inspired Adam's side hustle: East Austin Sawdust . Loading Email Sign-Up Form... If the form doesn't load, you can try our mailing list page instead.
