A practical manual packed with useful information and tips on how to convert salvaged wood, reclaimed materials, and even some types of shop waste into usable materials for building. From Craig's List, your basement, and estate sales, you can salvage what you need to upcycle all kinds of cool things. You can build tables, install hardwood floors and reclaimed windows, mason stone walls, and much more using free or very inexpensive, high-quality, recycled materials. You'll encounter opportunities to upcycle usable building materials everywhere. If you exercise good judgment and know a few salvage tricks, you can take advantage of these chances to gather free (or nearly free) project supplies and put them to work in your house. Building with Secondhand Stuff, 2nd edition takes green remodeling and construction practices to new heights. From deconstruction methods and salvaging tips to plotting efficient cutting plans and devising creative new uses for everyday items, it is packed with clever ways to obtain low-cost materials (and reduce landfill). From plywood to hardwood flooring, to windows, doors, carpeting and more, salvaging building materials can save you thousands of dollars (and is about as green as you can get). This book is a hands-on, do-it-yourselfer's guide that shows you how to identify materials that can be salvaged efficiently and then gives you step-by-step instructions on how to go about doing it. This second edition of the best-selling book includes new projects such as a pallet chair, pallet table, chalkboard message door, door headboard, and a reclaimed window greenhouse.
