Re-Used Ylvi Windows

Recipient of a 2012 Second Nature Climate Leadership Award. One of eight colleges across the country to receive an "A" on the 2011 College Sustainability Report Card.

In an email to the Sustainability Department, Kurt Schroeder, a Rochester, Minnesota resident whose cousin lived in Ylvisaker Hall in the 90's, described a special way to re-purpose old materials.  A couple years ago, Luther replaced the windows in Ylvi.  Instead of throwing them out, they were posted on Craigslist for $40 a piece.  Schroeder had promised his kids a treehouse and needed "something durable that his children would not break."  Luther's windows proved to be exactly the thing he needed.  To see the treehouse and re-used windows, check out Kurt's blog here.
