effort afoot in Baltimore,
other cities follow
A few U.S. cities have begun a
process called “deconstruction”, in
which contracted local and non-profit groups take apart homes,
salvaging old wood and sell it to
local wood product manufacturers.
The city of Baltimore’s goals
are ambitious. First contracting the
help of non-profit Details Deconstruction in 2014, and with the
U.S. Forest Service as a sponsor,
the city plans to tear down 4,000
vacant homes over the next four
Many of the homes contain
400-year-old yellow pine, which
Details Deconstruction will give to
sister-group Brick and Board, who
will process and sell the pine and
other reclaimed materials.
The deconstruction and salvaging of a vacant home takes about
two weeks to complete. Details
Deconstruction begins with the
interior of the house, salvaging
400-year-old yellow pine, rafters, windows, doors, lighting,
kitchens, HVAC, and beyond.
Salvaged wood and other materials then head to the non-profit’s
sister-group Brick and Board’s
downtown warehouse. Bricks,
joists, beams, and floorboards are
reconditioned and sold to wood
product makers and retailers.
