I've decided to input the necessary extra effort to reclaim as much of the original wood trim as possible in my kitchen/dining room remodel. This serves several purposes; decreased landfill contribution, decreased consumption of natural resources, decreased financial expenditure, ect. While I'm far from being an ecocrazy, I do believe that conservation is always a good practice. But mostly I just love the character and texture of the old wood. After all, it is telling a nearly 100 year old story.
P.S. I'm tired of playing carpenter, I want to work on something with wheels!!!
