Dept. of Alternatives. Just a note that we received word that the Madagascar Institute is having a Building Materials Reuse Workshop this Saturday, February 19th at 2pm.
The title is funny, but the point is serious and anyone who is interested in salvaging materials during renovation or for renovation should take note.
All info below...
Two used materials stores are opening in New York.
If you're a designer or builder who's always done a
little salvage on the side and wondered how to
incorporate your street scores into your work, this
workshop will give you ideas on how. We'll highlight
a range of salvaged construction materials-- from
windows to wood flooring -- and show how they can
be used in new designs and remodels. Everyone
knows you can make a lamp out of anything, but we'll
look at lots of other stuff: classic doorways, tin
ceilings,windows, and more. You'll get unique
materials and original designs, and you'll help make
a dent in the amount of construction waste-- 40
percent! -- in local landfills.
