Laissez les bon temps rouler!

Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Its that time of year again, Mardi Gras! Or Fat Tuesday for those whose with minimal French skills. In honor of the celebration, I wanted to share a couple of articles about how our friends are recovering from Katrina.

The Discovery Channel has many nuggets regarding New Orleans as well as a pretty interesting interactive piece about the rebuilding of New Orleans. Check it out HERE.

This Old House also has a slew of articles and videos about the rebuilding as well. See the list HERE.

Finally, for those into this kind of thing, The Green Project, is working to promote a sustainable New Orleans.  They recycle building materials and salvage usable materials. The Green Project even operates a building materials recycling store.

Here is an interesting link to a company called BLOK-LOC. They have an interesting project they completed with travertine used to clad the exterior of a building just prior to Katrina. Check out the case study HERE.

 Whatever you are doing today, enjoy Mardi Gras and always…laissez les bon temps rouler (let the good times roll)!
