Building materials used in ‘bigger than life’ Tucson house
The building materials used to build the iconic Tucson house, a former US Post Office building that has been a tourist attraction, are made from old concrete and steel frames.
But a local construction worker, who was helping construct the house, was shocked to find the building material in a bucket on a table.
“I was just shocked and confused,” said Michael Oltman, the construction worker who was part of the team who helped construct the historic house.
“It was just something that was not normal,” he said.
“And it was the first time I had seen that, and it was shocking.”
The former US post office building, which was the site of the historic Tucson House in Arizona, was used as a home by the US Army and US military in World War I and World War II.
In recent years, the building has been used for concerts and other events, including a big party in 2015 hosted by the band Arcade Fire.
But in the late 1970s, the house became a tourist site.
Nowadays, it’s a popular tourist attraction.
It has a sprawling garden and can be found in a range of areas around Tucson, including Tonto National Forest.

“You would put the foundation and then just fill in the walls and then it would be done.”
But the construction workers, who did not want to be named, said the materials in the bucket were just a “small part” of the work that was being done.
“The building material is what they used to create the house,” said Kevin Hildreth, the manager of the Tucson Building Company.
“There’s no concrete or steel here.
The walls were built out of wood, and then they were filled in with concrete.”
When you fill in walls, you don’t just put a brick in and say ‘build a brick house’.

“He added that the materials were reused every time.
Mr Oltmans construction crew did not see the bucket until they had to return after a couple of hours to finish the work, which took around two weeks.”
We didn’t realize we had to go back and clean up the site,” he told the BBC.”
That was the hardest part, we didn’t want to just leave it there, we wanted to take the whole building down.
“He said he believed the building company was doing a good job of using the materials, which were not easily accessible.”
They’re used a lot, and they’re really easy to find and you can use them,” he added.”
So they’re used all the time.
“Mr Hildth said the company had to take a lot of care in the design of the house because the exterior of the building was being reused.”
Once you start with this stuff, it just takes a long time to get it right,” he explained.
