The Osgoode Recycled House

The Osgoode Recycled House
This house was designed and built by the Russell family starting in 1980. The structure is made entirely from materials recovered from two houses in Leitrim which were deconstructed.

The maple hardwood floors throughout and stairs were also from the 1942 military construction.

The design was a take off of NRC's 1977 research house in Saskatchewan. 12 fibreglass double stud walls, externally insulated basement, ground source heat pump from a deep well. Retrofit ready for solar panels.

Peter Russell has continued his interest in energy-efficient, healthy housing since this house was built, and is now the CEO of RESTCo.

RESTCo has an approach, and has developed a suite of techniques, tools, technologies, and network of affiliated organizations, which can do better.

For more information on RESTCo's approach to adaptable housing and infrastructure, please contact us.
