Call it the house that Goodwill built. A recently completed home in Missoula, Mont., carries the concept of second-hand construction materials to new levels. Built by the Center for Resourceful Building Technology, the 2,400-square-foot house showcases dozens of innovative products. Recycled newspaper went into its wall panels, shelving and insulation; light bulbs and auto windshields were turned into floor tile; old milk jugs became carpet, and recycled copper made the electrical wiring. Even the paint is reused, courtesy of a Seattle, Wash., recycling project. For more information, call 406/549-7678 or write CRBT, P.O. Box 3866, Missoula, MT 59806.
