FREE LUMBER!!!! We have new construction of "McMansions" going up all around us..... they have huge piles of lumber to be trashed.... 15 ft round x 5 ft high piles!!! DS went over to a place right across the way from us (4300 sq ft house being built) and asked if he could have some of the wood.... Foreman said "SURE.... we could have anything out of the pile - just be careful of the nails in some of it"....... Came home to get me, and we loaded up TWO van fulls of everything from plywood (1/8th in to 1 1/2 inch thick) to 2x4's, 2x6, 2x8, 2x10, and some 2x12's.... now keep in mind these aren't more than 3-5 ft long each and some are even smaller, but they will work perfectly for a bunch of things I want to build BEFORE we move to the MO place... I can't believe it!! Nothing like WOOD to make me wanna BUILD!!! ALL FOR FREE!!! We are going to keep watching places and keep asking about the free stuff!!! I will find room in the uhaul for my little "collections" due to the cost of lumber nowadays!!! I can't wait to get my composting toliet built!!! I am going to save a bunch of it for some built in bookcases when we build the house!!!! Other uses will be for hutches, pens and etc!!!! HOORAY!!!!
