Salvaging your unwanted junk furniture and architecture
Consider the structural elements and furnishings of your home. Many people are now recycling junk furniture wood, furniture, doors, metal, and other building materials.
You may not want that very junk furniture in form of old-fashioned porcelain sink or the long-outdated wood paneling, and that ancient outbuilding is going to be torn down, but who wants that old stuff?
An Eco-industry is growing out of the salvaged pieces of unwanted junk furniture, unused materials. Architectural salvage businesses and deconstruction services may be the next stop for the old porcelain sink or crown molding that survives removal from your home. Wood is being salvaged and re purposed to new life as one-of-a-kind furniture pieces, doors, paneling, etc. Antique fittings – door knobs, glass, fixtures, old built-ins, vintage windows – all have recycling potential.
