NYT: One Man's Trash

Did anyone see this article One Man's Trash in yesterday's New York Times? Holy moly - it is so cool. This guy in Texas has been building low-income housing out of, well, trash for 12 years. As we know, one person's trash is someone else's treasure. My favorite was this frame-sample ceiling. I mean - can you believe that?? It's gorgeous. See the slideshow from the article here & read more about Dan here.

This looks so cool, and there's definitely real skill involved. If I tried that, it would most assuredly look like trash.
