On Friday, I went to town to run some errands. After buying some supplies from the local John Deere dealership I passed by a moving company warehouse, and spied some really useful materials next to the curb. I stopped in to ask about salvage, and was told to take all I wanted - anything along the street, for free. I headed home to fetch the truck and trailer and returned straightaway.
When the military moves families, the contractors pack their household goods into large plywood crates, about 8 feet long, 7 feet tall, and just shy of four feet wide. Each of these crates contains the equivalent of roughly 6 or 7 sheets of plywood, plus some 2 X 4s. Just this one crate will provide all the materials I need to refurbish some of the dog houses here that need some work.
