Raising the Bar

Earlier this week we picked up a load of reclaimed lumber from the Edison Neighborhood Association Go Green Deconstruction Project Warehouse in Kalamazoo.


We got some 2 x 12 floor joists with nice patina to make the bar top and other features for the tavern. The pieces were a bit long for my dad’s little pickup, but we made it back to Battle Creek safe and sound. We made the bar top from two of the pieces and we’re really pleased with how it turned out.


While I love the lumber, it also feels good to help the Edison Neighborhood Association deconstruct abandoned, condemned or other-wise blighted properties. It saved us a lot of money on lumber too. Gotta keep pinchin’ pennies.
