Chris and I renovated most of our house last summer. We used salvaged materials wherever possible and are especially proud of the kitchen remodel. The house was originally built in 1920. Many items were purchased used from Community Forklift.

National Winner 2nd Place

All beam and plant-on work in the house was done with salvaged wood from TRP and Cleveland Wrecking Company. I have been a TRP customer since the opening of your L.A. store. I bought a large stained glass window from TRP, which was installed in the main window of the house. One of the exterior walls contains shingles and a pine-and-cedar Viking dragon head purchased at TRP.

I designed this bouldering wall in an underserved park in Wilmington, Ohio. My goals were to excite people about the place they live, to help them see value where they saw little before, and to increase the cultural wealth of the entire community based on the assets and practices of the residents themselves.

This project centers around a 4' X 16' post and beam structure adjacent our wooden hot tub.  It houses a changing area, an outdoor shower, a composting toilet outhouse, and supports two solar hot water collectors.  It includes a deck, fence, and sink.  I used almost entirely salvaged materials, mostly from the ReUse People and Craigslist.
