Porch Reconstruction= Architectural Salvage!October 22nd, 2013 in member junk
So I rent an apartment that is located in an 1880's mansion in NH. I LOVE my apartment and the house its in, but because the home is antique, there is always something that needs to be repaired.
My landlords recently started getting the porch fixed. I befriended the contractors, and now they save pieces of wood for me that cannot be salvaged (for a load bearing structure). But that doesn't mean I can't salvage them for decorative purposes!
One of the pillars was beyond repair so they gave it to me. I had a friend cut it down for me, and now it's candle stands in my living room.
