I don't remember seeing this here anywhere, might be already though...love his designs and might be some ideas those who are building now could use.

'One man's rubbish is another man's gold’ and Dan Phillips has proven that age old truism through his construction business Phoenix Commotion. A trained architect from Huntsville, Texas, Mr. Phillips helps people build their own affordable dream homes with recycled materials that most people would consider useless. Up until now, he has helped construct 14 houses, each of which have welcomed low-income, first-time buyers to the world of home ownership.'

Now I see the thread below was posted seven years ago about this guy...maybe someone could magically merge them and keep my title as it has his name and business?
