House No. 174: Little Found Object House

House No. 174: Little Found Object House
found plastic game pieces and repurposed card stock on found wood scrap
2 in. x 2 in. x 2.5 in.
174/365; 06/23/11

I found this block of scrap wood in the street in front of my office building and the plastic game pieces in a closet that I was cleaning out in my parents’ old house. The card stock is another piece from my paper samples collection.

If anyone knows what game these pieces belong to, please let me know. I am very curious. I suspect it is some type of triangular dominoes.


  1. I *think* they are from Triaminos, or is it Triominos? We have the game here, but my husband brought it home to the children and I have yet to play it. It's my best guest, anyway.

    Their use in the house adds immediate whimsy and made me smile, especially seeing that two different ones were used for front and back, and the questions that brings in regards to whether or not the house address varies based upon from which direction you are approaching.


  2. Ha! I hadn't thought of the house numbers. I love that directional house number idea, Misha.

    Thanks for the tip on the Triominoes too!

  3. I am really, really drawn to this one.

  4. Ditto Misha on the house numbers. Plus of course I love the repurposed materials, and what a great shot of the completed house!
