S07 Second Use Building Materials

Second Use has been reclaiming building materials for reuse in the Puget Sound region since 1994. Our mission is to divert reusable building materials from the landfill, preserve architectural heritage, provide affordable building materials to the public, and offer living wage jobs to our staff. Salvaged items include doors, windows, cabinets, hardware, light fixtures, tubs, sinks, toilets, flooring and more. Most unique about our business is our online inventory, which is updated daily (www.seconduse.com). In October of 2012, Second Use moved from South Park to a new SoDo location. Looking forward to seeing new friends and old on the Green Homes Tour!

SecondUseLogoWith growing attention on salvage and creative reuse, Second Use wants to engage the local design and building community and spotlight what the Seattle area's creative building professionals are doing in this important area of sustainable building.

In conjunction with the Building Materials Reuse Association biennial national conference, Decon '13, Second Use is hosting a salvage project showcase at its new SoDo warehouse store.

Visitors will see pictures from a variety of projects that used salvage and reuse in an impactful way.

Additionally, Second Use will provide some refreshments and will lead store tours throughout the day.
