Mike Moss, left with the kauri stairs of the new home at the Nelson Eco-Village. The dis-assembled home on Red Zoned land in Christchurch was shipped it to Nelson.

“It was a lot like a kid with a box of Lego, you have got one house made out of it and you pull it all to bits, put it back in the box and then make another one but it looks completely different.” He estimated a third of the materials used in the build were recycled. Some from their home in Christchurch, other parts from the demolition yard. He estimated the value of recycled materials in the house was about $150,000.
