An older 2 bedroom home we recently deconstructed in La Crosse, Wisconsin. The home was removed to make the lot more desirable for a commercial property buyer. We were able to save windows and doors, light fixtures, roofing boards, hardwood flooring, pine attic flooring, rafters 2x8 and 2x10 joists, lap board sheathing, and much more. Only a few dumpster loads of unusable material made its way to the landfill.
We recently completed deconstruction on this Minnesota barn. We saved plywood sheathing from the roof, siding, lots of beams and most floor joists, as well as a number of barn doors and windows.
The same barn after our work was complete. The landowner will now dispose of the unusable material and the foundation. This barn was already deteriorating rapidly. Now instead of all the material going to waste, all but a fraction will be repurposed.
