Welcome to the Commotion

The Phoenix Commotion is a local building initiative created to prove that constructing homes with recycled and salvaged materials has a viable place in the building industry. This process uses only apprentice labor and teaches marketable skills to anyone with a work ethic who is willing to swing a hammer. By keeping labor costs low and using donated or found materials, the homes created are truly affordable. No two are alike due to the myriad of materials used, so there is an artistic element that makes Phoenix Commotion homes unique. We target single parents, artists, and families with low incomes. We require the homeowner to be involved with the planning and construction of his or her own home. The result is a person who is empowered, not only by the useful knowledge of building skills, but by the opportunity to become part of a community as a vested participant.

Waste Management of Houston, Texas--an international solid waste logistics company--commissioned Dan Phillips and the Phoenix Commotion to design the interior of a recycling education center in their new facility. The project includes a large mosaic mural, papier-mache mural, stage floor and chairs created from recycled or reclaimed materials. Dan and the crew will install the project in Houston when the building is completed.
