How a Tree becomes a House. Or Furniture. Or Floors.

I follow ReBuilding Exchange (a great local Chicago resource for reclaimed building supplies & fixtures - love it!) on Facebook & they posted a picture of this sculpture by Vincent Kohler.  It is a great visual that explains how a log is cut & planed to create wood ready for building.  I found it to be fascinating!  

 

I went into the ReBuilding Exchange last week just to poke around a bit.  They have aisles of old doors, reclaimed wood, kitchen cabinets, sinks, toilets, you name it!  What I also loved were the carpet tiles.  At $2/tile, I was able to put together a  4x6 rug for $12.  It was high performance contract carpet, perfect for an entry.  I wasn't able to think of a place to use it, so I put it all back...but let this serve as a notice to you if you're in the market!
