I only have a few channels for teevee time. One of the most interesting ones is Télé-Québec which has introduced me to the great “Les Citadins du rebut global” series. As an idealist, I look to this effort for inspiration for my own dwelling evolution. For me (age x era), there is nothing more attractive than a whole made of salvaged pieces than a giant made from raw materials.
Take five committed urbanites, an abandoned Montreal building, $15,000, 75 litres of gas and all the scrap materials they can scavenge and give them 13 weeks to make themselves a home. What do you have ? Les Citadins du rebut global, a highly unusual experiment in ecological urban living !

What you see here is a sofa that was made out of an old oil tank. It is one of a kind and you will not find it in your ikea catalog.
