We don’t have many reclaimed homes in San Diego. In fact, I want to sell my condo full of reclaimed and ‘green’ building materials. Every realtor I have spoken to- just doesn’t get the eco friendly- green home thing! When I see a great post from All Things G&D: Parade of Homes–Reclaimed Materials with interesting pictures of reused building materials, just have to pass it on. For more pictures- please click the link above- great ideas and pics.
From the Eberle website “All of the re-milled Douglas fir wood timbers throughout the home are reclaimed from the Naval Air Station and the Ford Assembly Plant in Chicago. These timbers are more than 100 years old, which proves to everyone that many items we take for granted can be restored to yet another use. Also, the exterior stone has a history as well. The stone came from Maxwell Street in Chicago. Many of the items in the home are 80 percent and above recycled materials. This home proves that even reclaimed items (wood, stone, etc.) can be a thing of beauty the second time around.
I love this fireplace-reclaiming stones is very easy-think demolished buildings-think craigslist! I love the home- the idea of creative reuse!
