The Recycled Haus

The Recycled Haus

The intention with the 1600 Block is to increase awareness in a sustainable way and bring neighbors together.

Fences will not be built in the front half of the lots so the fruit trees and berries may share the property line. More fruit trees adorn the rear of the lots.

Consider organic chicken eggs harvested from the chickens that help with weeds and insects? We are thinking about building chicken coops between two lots in the rear to share in space and care needs. Go deeper with us..."
