Reduce Waste

To allow the family to relax in comfort without using the air conditioner, the crew built this screened porch where there was once an old cedar deck. Because they deconstructed it carefully, they were able to remill the wood and use it in the trellis-style railing here and around the deck above. Any job-site waste that couldn't be reused was sent to a special collection site to be recycled.
