Amazing and unique items can be found at architectural salvage yards, from reclaimed wood from a now defunct bridge, to doors, windows, kitchen and bath essentials to raw building materials. Recycling centers can be filled with cast-offs form contractors and homeowners who prefer to donate rather than trash their scraps. You can find bargains to near freebies for your next remodeling project, if you are willing to invest a bit of time and effort in the search. You might even find something with a bit of history and a story. Check out Recyclingthepast.com for an example of an architectural salvage yard – then do a Google search to find one in your area. Also check Freecycle.org for items your neighbors may be looking to donate to a new home.
