Salvaged Homes: Renovating Old Buildings into Unique Houses in Reno, Nevada

Inspired to remodel rundown spaces in their hometown, two landlords keep old buildings out of the landfill and re-invigorate their community.

An Art Deco structure built in 1953, the former Reno fire station was converted to a homeless shelter before being abandoned for a number of years. Residence 9 includes a rollup wall of glass that once served as the fire truck door.
