2nd Annual Restore Reuse Contest ends Aug. 31

August 20, 2013

Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity’s second annual ReStore ReUse Contest is winding down with just a few weeks left until the August 31 deadline. If you recently built a structure using predominantly reused building materials, the ReStore encourages you to enter the ReStore ReUse Contest. Examples of projects entered last year include chicken coops, artist studios, and garden sheds. For complete information and guidelines, please visit ashevillehabitat.org

The purpose of the contest is to showcase innovative building projects constructed predominantly of used building materials. “Our customers often tell us about the projects they make using materials purchased at the ReStore. This contest is a great way to showcase their projects and inspire others to reuse, recycle and repurpose usable building materials and supplies,” said Scott Stetson, ReStore General Manager.

Five judges will select winners in the following categories: Furniture, Homesteading and Live/Work Space. Best in Show will also be awarded.
