Build/remodel with Salvaged Materials
Stainedglass
Description

On Saturday, March 31st from 1 to 3 pm we will tour two neighboring house projects to see the many different salvaged materials used in their construction, from redwood porch floors to bowling alley countertops. One of the projects is a remodel by owner, the other a new home construction (pending LEED Platinum certification), by Meadowlark Builders.

• The owners will discuss the sources for their reclaimed materials, and the pros and cons of using them.
• Joe from Meadowlark Builders will show highlights of their other projects utilizing salvaged materials.
• “Sawmill John” from John's Urban Timber will be there to discuss his urban wood sawmill which supplied the walnut countertops on the tour.
• Alvin from the Architectural Salvage Warehouse of Detroit will be there to discuss the oak flooring they supplied—salvaged from deconstructed homes in Detroit.
• Someone from BGreenToday will be on hand to answer questions about the natural finishes used.

Please arrive by 12:50. We will divide into small groups, and starting at 1:00 we'll begin rotating through the various stations on the tour, ending at 3:00.

Note: We will have a "Scrap Swap" board where you can post info (i.e. photo, specs, etc.) on salvaged building materials you have to sell/trade, or materials you are hoping to find. One person's trash is another's treasure!
