Better Homes and Garbage

By LuAnne Siliva, ASID
I love this place based on their name alone! They focus on salvaging building materials and collect everything from doors and windows to plumbing and lighting fixtures to flooring, counter tops and cabinets. Searching is super easy, you can view everything online by category. Here are a few fabulous finds from Better Homes and Garbage

While you are at the State Fair, visit the Passive House structure at the Eco Experience Green Crossing exhibit.  The Passive House is designed and built by graduate students from North Dakota State University. Some of the building materials were provided by Better Homes & Garbage.
