From the Ashes: Australian Callignee Brushfire House

Despite the destruction of the Australian Black Saturday Brushfires this past year, Chris Clarke has turned tragedy into his own personal “phoenix”. Here’s the story that redefines perseverance; only weeks after Chris finished building his dream home from scratch, the brushfires strike and completely annihilate the entire house (see before photos below). Now- most of us would have thrown in the towel, I know I personally would have been inconsolable- but not Chris Clarke, what’s he do? He decides to immediately re-build the entire home using some recyclable elements from the first home and incorporates some of the latest in fireproof materials. Check out the inspiring reconstruction below.
