Today we were like kids in a candy store walking around a used building materials yard here in Tucson. Again, using the recycling and re-use aspect of the this project it was great to let our imaginations run as we walk through everything from windows to doors to steel panels. These are great areas to look first when building any project. Look for things you need that may be re-used and are in great shape before you go buy new. This way, the landfills aren't filling up with perfectly good materials. It cost a lot less too, if you are willing to look.
If only we could do something with that side panel off an airplane fuselage.....humm, maybe next project.
