Used, Reclaimed & Recycled Building Materials: 10 Tips For Finding Salvage Wood

Want to reduce the environmental impact of your tiny house project? Reclaimed lumber is for you!

There’s no substitute for the warmth and ambiance of wooden architecture, especially when you’re using reclaimed lumber. Every knot, notch and nail-hole tells a story and adds to the richness of your project. Plus you get to tell your friends all about it when they come over for a visit.

(The natural builders at Dancing Rabbit Eco-village figured this out a long time ago. If you want to see some of the handiwork featured in this article firsthand, consider paying us a visit through our annual visitor program.)

The best part is: reclaimed lumber is environmentally sustainable because it doesn’t come with the baggage of embodied pollution, worldwide deforestation and species extinction. (The spotted owls offer their hearty thanks.) Not to mention you can often buy it at rock-bottom prices, on a barter-trade basis, or even for free.  In short, reclaimed lumber is the perfect compliment to other natural building techniques and materials you can incorporate into your design.

It has been a number of years since the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag gathered to celebrate Colonial America’s first successful harvest. In fact, it has been 396 years (or so) as best we can tell. And while our modern celebrations are as much about a big New York City parade, a football rivalry, or some good ‘ol Stovetop, there are still dots on our landscape that take this one day of the year to truly give thanks for their homes,their families, their freedom, and their harvest.

GIVING THANKSWithin ten months of landing on Plymouth Rock (see: Was There A Tiny House On Plymouth Rock), the Pilgrims had constructed seven houses, a common meeting room and three storehouses for their harvested goods. After a long, hard winter in which a number of settlers died of either hypothermia, complications of frostbite, malnutrition, pneumonia or other illnesses due to unfavorable conditions and ill-equip, there was much to be thankful for.
