What a Find! 1/7/2006

If you own your home and it has been built over 10 years ago since it was built... it is time to go to the Rebuilding Center. For environmentalists it satisfies the need to recycle. For the spend thrifts it saves you money. For all of us, it is fun to look through the variety of left over building supplies to refurbish and use in our homes. Even if you don’t plan to buy, it is fun to scrounge through the assortment of stuff! You never know what you might find, or how you might use it!! more

Saving the Earth and Uniting Communities 1/5/2006

The ReBuilding Center is similar to the Habitat ReStore except that it is strictly an organization that looks to keep usable and potentionally destructive things out of land fills. When I visit the ReBuilding Center, it is usually to look for a specific item...but it never ceases to amaze me to listen to the conversations of people saying "Now, what could I do with this in my house?" Lest you think their clientele is limited to dredlocked hippies, you'll find truckers and weekend warriors in there there side by side with housewives and gardners. Take your time may discover solutions to your home maintenance needs you never would have dreamed of! Oh...and the prices are good too! more

Recycled Renovation Materials at a Fraction of the Price 11/30/2005

I absolutely love the Rebuilding Center!! They receive recycled/vintage cabinets, appliances, lighting, fixtures, doors, windows, and much, much more, then provide them to you for your renovating needs at a fraction of the retail value. I have purchased full sinks for $10, an astonishingly beautiful granite topped kitchen island for $400, and even pieces of marble for under $1 each. These and so many more glorious finds await you in the--here's the best part--NONPROFIT Rebuilding Center. Staff are helpful, but stretched thin, so come prepared to wander the aisles in search of what you need. The inventory changes often, so be willing to take the time to look for yourself. It is a warehouse setting, so do be careful and dress appropriately. The warehouse is divided into sections to make it easier to find what you need: doors and windows, cabinets and appliances, wood moldings, lighting, plumbing--all separated out. And an especially intriguing area is where there is furniture and home accessories created from Rebuilding Center finds. But my favorites are always the things that have no category--like entire rows of movie theater seating. You never know what you'll find. It's worth the time and effort to support a great nonprofit, but you'll find it pays you back too. And hopefully you'll think of them after your next remodelling project, so you can pay it forward. more

Have doorknobs, will travel 8/17/2005

This is one of those places that make you love Portland. It incorporates all that I love about the city and its people. It’s part co-op, part recycling center, part construction thrift store, I can spend hours here dreaming up projects to utilize the rescued treasures. Everything you can imagine coming from a house is amidst the vast labyrinth of stuff. They have recently expanded and the new space was badly needed to put lumber and such under cover. Having bought a circa 1915 fixer Cape Cod, I was glad to find a place to donate my old bits and pieces: doors (and associated hardware), electrical fixtures, trim, carpet, flooring, cabinets, bathroom fixtures, appliances, etc. The prices are good, and the staff (some volunteer) is sparse but helpful. Also, it’s a great place for mixed media art project inspiration! more

Free entertainment, even if you don't own a house. 6/15/2005

The ReBuilding Center is the kind of place I can easily spend half a day for no real reason. You have to see it to believe it. It's a non-profit organization which collects salvaged building materials (light fixtures, trim, windows, doors, pipes, cabinets, sinks, etc.) and resells them at fantastically cheap prices. The place makes me want to create things, although I'm never sure exactly what. The giant space also houses a retail store for home decor made out of salvaged materials, including some of the most beautiful dining tables I've ever seen. I bought my parents a coat rack made from old trim and a selection of mis-matched doorknobs. more
