In other words, we go into houses and commercial spaces slated for remodel or demolition and harvest the good stuff (doors, cabinets, windows, appliances, flooring, hardware) to prevent it from going to waste. We haul it back to our retail stores (located in Seattle and Tacoma) and sell it to the public for a fraction of the cost they would buy new.
