We live in a disposable world; a world where homeowners are quick to discard perfectly salvageable items
that no longer fit into their decor. You'd be amazed at the recycled building materials you can find - for CHEAP.
Reclaimed building materials have more character, and using recycled doors, lumber, and floorboards for new construction can lessen the impact on old growth forests.
With a little elbow grease and a bit of imagination, it is possible to cut costs by 30% or more for remodeling projects AND new construction.
