Wasted Materials

Just a quick post and a small rant.

Remember our neighbor's house that was squished by two big cottonwood trees earlier this summer? Well - they have demolished that house and are putting up a double wide for her to live in. Sensible enough. Smaller home, easier to heat, she will get to stay in the neighborhood she has lived in all her life, we get to keep a nice neighbor.

The sad thing is that none of the materials from the house were salvaged. Yes, I know salvage work is time consuming and costly but it really broke my heart watching the big backhoe scrape perfectly good pieces of tin off her roof and crumple them. With so many environmental problems, don't you think we should be recycling more building materials???

Here's a couple of photos. Maxx really enjoyed watching the demolition.
