One person's trash is another person's treasure

Hot damn! We just found about 1,000 sq. ft. of red oak flooring from a friend (yeah, the same friends that gave us their old doors) who pulled it out of an older home locally and never used it on their own house. They had all the best intentions to do so, but it didn't work out. They have been storing it in a neighbor's garage and by happenstance learned that we were in need of some salvaged wood flooring. It was a perfect fit with our existing floors so all we need to do is refinish everything together!
I am so amazed when stuff like this happens. There is a demand.....there is a supply. The hardest part is getting the two parts together. So, I have decided that I am going to put up a sign at our remodel site that gives this url in the hopes that I can find more things we need for the house as well as build up excitement about green rebuilding. Next post will likely be about HVAC stuff. Yahoo!
