More Relevant Details for Those That Appreciate Novels
It has become apparent that the longterm goal of deconstructing buildings in Connecticut needs to include saving every building possible now and stockpiling those materials for the future, even if there is not an immediate use for them, because they are irreplaceable. And in the future good quality locally produced building materials are going to be necessary to maintain the existing housing stock, and repair structures after natural disasters. We are the first to use a demolition license for deconstruction, an alternative to demolition, in Connecticut. This means we can now actually get permits to do what we’ve wanted to to all along: deconstruct entire buildings in order to save all the materials.
This is a huge undertaking, conceived by a stubborn desire to fill an urgent environmental need. It now calls for more public involvement and your participation. We were launched with the generous support of a few individuals, but now require the support of the larger community. We have a few of those gracious individuals that need to be paid back right away.
We also need to make immediate improvements in order to efficiently handle the volume of materials that come from the full deconstruction services that we can now provide since getting our license in November 2014. This includes needing space for large volume materials handling such as lumber and an overhaul of our retail space in order to create a convenient and efficient retail experience.
A contribution of $ 10.00, we will provide you with a Store Credit of $ 20.00
A contribution of $ 20.00 we will provide you with a store credit of $ 50.00
A contribution of $ 100.00, we will provide you with $ 150.00 in store credit
Yes, your store credit is like buying a gift certificate at a big discount, but doing it this way makes the contribution more public. We are trying to get customers interested in the process of community "un -barn building" if you will. So post your supportive comments too. These contributions will pay for the removal of historic items from the Hamden Whitney Avenue houses that we cannot immediately sell. It also obviously is a scheme to get you to go to our new retail location to buy other things we have salvaged. And while you are there you can support another locally owned business, Fairhaven Furniture, that generously provides us with gallery space at their absolutely fabulous retail store.
We will mail or you can pick up your cards at our gallery at Fairhaven Furniture, 72 Blatchley Avenue, New Haven Ct. Open Fridays and Saturdays 10 to 3 and by appointment.
