Dan Phillips's recycled house. Texas.

Thousands of picture frame corners used to create the ceiling. Mr. Phillips said, "A frame shop was getting rid of old samples and I was there waiting."

Salvaged wine corks provide an inexpensive form of cork flooring.

A chair's back is fashioned out of cattle bones.

80% of the materials were salvaged from construction projects, found in trash heaps or picked up off the side of the road.
