Douglas Fir. Grain fineness is close to heart pine. Dense, clear, vertical grained.
Old growth hemlock, 3×8, 12 feet long. Nice structural timbers suitable for furniture making. This is the best fine-grained, old-growth hemlock we’ve ever seen.. We also have some 3x11s, 16 feet long. $2.75/board foot. In our yard now.
These gorgeous bleacher planks (see photos to right) have been salvaged from LeMoyne College this week and are now available in Buffalo.
Douglas Fir or Southern Pine (we’re still working on accurate typing of the wood species). Grain fineness on the narrower boards is close to heart pine. Dense, clear and resinous.
Creative people are making a home on the third floor of our building, The Guild @980.
The first resident to move in was Jenny Miller. Jenny’s creative endeavor is called Mexican Radio – each piece in the shop is made and designed by Jenny using reclaimed lath wood.
The engine behind our efforts has always been our Green Demolition Services. By implementing advanced strategies pioneered by David Bennink of ReUse Consulting, our team has been able to remove buildings more efficiently, with higher landfill diversion rates, and more safely than we could have ever done them before. Our roster of dismantled structures, residential and commercial, is over 200 and steadily growing.
This efficiency has opened doors to new projects and exciting opportunities.
In 2007, when the city was struggling with a vacancy problem and the Mayor declared his visionary 10 in 10 plan to demolish 10,000 houses in 10 years, we envisioned something different.
We believed there was a better option for neighborhoods! So we created Buffalo ReUse, a neighborhood recycling effort to dismantle buildings and funnel reusable materials to a community store. The community rallied behind the idea, they supported the cause, they donated and shopped and worked to improve neighborhoods through our many service projects, tree plantings, and community gardens.
A Bigger Dream
In 2010, we dreamed even bigger. As the City changed, we observed widening disparities. Young men and woman in need of an opportunity, homeowners in need of a consistent source of quality renovation materials, and a planet in need of innovative strategies to reduce waste.
The Guild @980 is open this Holiday Weekend! Every Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday from 9 – 4, our doors are open. We stock artistic works, old and unique items, and all types of reclaimed and surplus building materials and house parts. Come out and see what you can find for your next project or gift idea. This weekend, we’ll be clearing out thousands of feet of barn boards and beams. Discounts will start at 20% off all beams, barn siding, and planks we have in our yard. Many will be even further discounted. If you haven’t visited The Guild @980, … Read more
It’s getting colder – time to add some insulation to your home or shop.
We do a brisk business in reclaimed and factory-second rigid foam insulation.
Right now, we have lots and lots of PolyIsoCyanurate (PIC) Insulation in our yard. This is the yellow stuff, good for roofs, ceilings and walls – R6 per inch.
Because it’s a reclaimed material, we can price it at HALF or LESS of its retail price.
Save money, save energy, stay warmer!
If you’ve come here from Facebook, welcome! The link says we’re discounting – that’s an error because it read last year’s post. We won’t be further discounting our insulation prices this time around.
