Salvaging Materials!

We are at the stage in our build where we’re seeking all sorts of materials. This includes ply wood, countertops, flooring, door hardware, windows, roofing etc. you name it we probably still need it!!

Why reusing, recycling, reclaiming is a worthwhile endeavor –

  • Adds unique character and charm
  • Lessens the amount of “garbage” that ends up in landfills
  • Saves money
  • Minimizes our carbon footprint
