Skagit Building Salvage sourced mid-century enameled fire place and roof tiles repurposed as a patio.  Cedar decking sourced from Bellingham’s RE-store and railing material from Port Townsend’s Waste Not Want Not

Four braces from a craftsman home and three large planks from a warehouse in La Conner were assembled to create this sturdy table.


Using a dutch door, a craftsman screen door, cabinets, and 2×4 studs purchased at our store, Bellingham residents Liz Jennings and Tim Schaebethal built this deluxe chicken coop to match their home.

From Melissa Spear: “We picked up a $25.00 mahogany door.  We cut down one end to make it look more even, sanded it, stained it and then we painted on chalk paint in the middle.  I stenciled in wording and designs, then hung it horizontal in our dining room.”
