Yeah my ideal Fallout show would basically be an anthology
I think House did specifically cannibalize most of Vault 21 to rebuild the Strip, and they certainly look like new buildings.
Wandering around the outskirts lately, it does strike me that much of the damage throughout the Mojave is meant to be the result of the current war, rather than the ruins of 200 years earlier.
Whilst I don't think the Vegas strip has many new constructions outside of the barricade walls and Angelo's signs, it is true that the damage of the Mojave is explicitly non-nuclear. If you recall, House spared Vegas and the Mojave from the vast majority of bombing. The destruction in the Mojave very much seems to be a product of time and two centuries of tribal warfare.
Only Black Mountain suffered a direct hit.
There was an airburst explosion near Las Vegas which radiation killed the people who were currently present there but the damage to Las Vegas was minimal.
Edit: or it was the radiation released from the missiles House's computers couldn't shut down and House's defenses had to shoot down instead.
Most of the damage to the city (and surroundings) was due to decay/lack of maintenance, anarchy, and the mentioned tribal warfare.
It'd make sense that a lot of the broken down housing was also cannibalized for use, for sure. Because once you come down from the mountains there really aren't any/many trees to be using to make even junk furniture, weapons, or simple home repairs. I imagine by now most of the wood isn't usable but 200 years is a long time of people trying to engineer/build/manufacture stuff.
For infrastructure that's yet to be reclaimed there is the New Vegas Steel location as well. Its not referenced in game a lot but I always figured it factored into House's long term goals for rebuilding the region.
