Habitat Re-Store announces 4th Annual ReUse Contest

June 30, 2015

The Asheville Habitat ReStore at 31 Meadow Road near Biltmore Village announces its fourth annual ReStore ReUse Contest. Garden shed, artist studio, chicken coop…tree house, dog house, playhouse…if you recently built a structure like this using predominantly reused building materials, the Habitat ReStore encourages you to enter the ReStore ReUse Contest. The contest runs July 1-August 31 and submissions must be sent electronically. 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 Manager.

Five judges will select winners in the following categories: Furniture, Homesteading, Live/Work Space, and Best in Show. The public will be encouraged to vote for their favorite entry (People’s Choice Award) in the ReStore and on-line from September 4-18, with details announced later this summer.
