Waste Less Works

Our latest project is a beastly beauty. Located in Hamilton and close to 6,000 square feet. Estimated to be built in 1890 and formerly an Ice House.

Our deconstruction work would confirm that story. The wall panels have 4 layers of shiplap with an air space between each layer. The rough cut 2x8 exterior wall studs are filled with sawdust. The exterior holds 3 layers of siding and a layer of 1x sheathing. So it is a bit like peeling an onion.

Despite the heavy workload, this project will yield a ton of great lumber. Stay tuned for: 1x, rough cut 2×12, 2x8, modern 2x4, 2x8, 2x12, plywood, metal roofing and so much more.
