The RE Store + Mighty House Construction

The RE Store is your nonprofit building salvage company in Ballard. We take materials donations, we do free salvage pick-ups, we do green demolition – and then we sell all of that material in our store, at roughly half the cost of what it would be new. Many of the homes on the tour today bought materials for their projects from our store - come check our vast array of building materials we have for your projects as well – everything from lumber and flooring to doors and windows to plumbing fixtures and hardware.

In our showroom, open especially for Tour Guests on Saturday April 27th, come see our glass tile, glass icicles, wind chimes, sun catchers, and mix-colored tumbled glass for garden paths at the showroom, then see our products on the tour at Sustainable Madrona Bengalow and Ford Remodel.
