Deconstruction

With all that demo underway around Detroit this summer, where are former building pieces going? A lot of it still gets tossed, but thanks to Reclaim Detroit some of it is staying out of the landfill. Deconstruction specialists with RD are sent to houses to take apart the wood for reuse when they are able to find homes that meet these criteria: built before the 1940s, not gutted by fire, and not presenting an environmental hazard.
