Recently, a wood fence was salvaged from a University of Illinois professor’s home to be used for the construction of planters and benches for the Re_home. Team Illinois is really excited about the opportunity to Re_use these materials. Students retrieved and disassembled the fence to prepare for its use in construction. The team is still finalizing the planter and bench design, but will begin construction on these features soon using the salvaged wood.
