If you are someone who is looking forward to being more environmentally conscious, you’ll find that you can do a lot to forward your cause when you are building or tearing down on your property. When you start taking things down, take a close and serious look at the materials that you have taken apart. You never know when some of those materials can be used for other purposes.
For example, take a look at the wood that you are tearing down. If you are taking down a barn or a shed, there is a good chance that you will have some lovely weathered wood to work with. There are a lot of people who are coming to love the distressed aesthetic, so sit down for a moment and consider what you can use that wood for. Barn wood can be re-purposed to create things like floors decorative walls, and this can enhance your property a great deal!
Another thing for you to keep an eye on is flooring. Whether you are looking at old ceramic tile or even old stone, there is a good chance that you can reuse it. There is far better than simply wasting it.
