"We need urgent climate action and greatly increased  ambition - in emissions reductions
and in promoting adaptation to current and future impacts of climate change.
Success demands broad-based concerted action from all levels of society, public and private, action coalitions across all sectors and the engagement of all key actors. There
is no time, nor reason, to delay." 

 António Guterres, United
Nations Secretary-General 

"At the least we should be saving all the materials from buildings we remove. The difference between the demolition cost and deconstruction cost must be subsidized. While we work towards ordinances and other incentives to compel this, it is up to us to buy used and otherwise financially make up the difference. This is just one action that will make a tangible difference on our impact on the environment, plus it creates jobs as well as secondary jobs, while supplying us with locally produced materials that cannot be obtained anywhere else." From the guy that tries to run this gig.

Bridgeport

We are moving from our main building space to the old boiler building. The near future plan is to have bulk materials in the cavernous room, and have as smaller retail sales spot in the main building. Keep in mind that we are located at Monger's Market where there is now upward of 10 or more other vendors ( moving in so fast I can't keep count.)
