Green Renovation Resources

This is a place for us to keep a list of resources as we identify them.

Architectural Salvage: – A small store front location in Adams Morgan and a larger warehouse at 1st and N, NW.  This is where This Old House found some of the details for their DC rowhouse. – They rescue furniture, floors, windows, aluminum ceiling tiles, etc. from old buildings, refurbish as needed, and then sell at Eastern Market (as well as in NYC and PA).
