In small town Huntsville, Texas, Dan Phillips’s name is well known. Dan has built several homes using recycled materials, oftentimes what other home builders have considered to be garbage. Within these homes, Dan has managed to produce efficiency and beauty, all within the confines of strict safety codes.
This week, I have been lucky enough to stay in Huntsville (just a few hours north of Houston) with artist extraordinaire Edie Wells. Edie, my former high school art teacher at the Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts, is now one of the artists working on the Memory Wall at Smither Park in Houston. Edie and her family live in the Bone House, a house Dan and his crew built that more than lives up to its name.
