The annual Builders Surplus Sale, produced by the Remodelers™ Council of the Home Builders Association took place October 2-5, 2008 at the Portland Fall Home & Garden Show®. Thank you to all of the companies who donated materials and a special thank you to the volunteers who donated their time to make the sale a huge success, especially chair Jim Bruce, of JB Construction.
Items left at the end of the show were donated to The ReBuilding Center, a project of Our United Villages. The ReBuilding Center is the nation’s largest non-profit reuse center for salvaged construction and remodeling materials. The ReBuilding Center operates a retail store selling new and used building materials and household goods to the public at a reduced cost. In addition, The Rebuilding Center includes DeConstruction Services, a sustainable alternative to conventional demolition, and ReFind Furniture, which offers a diverse line of green furniture and home accessories.
