Thanks fellas. IIRC, Lowe's does deliver for $50 here.
Re the waste issue... I live in KS where waste laws aren't too bad, so
I just drop stuff off in ditches out in the country when I can.
Actually, I just finished chopping up a couch into trash can sized
pieces with an axe, a sawzall and a die grinder a few weekends ago. We
actually threw out the kitchen sink last weekend, got a kick out of
that. gotta start on a twin sized mattress next.
What it boils down to, as far as waste goes, is that almost everything
has salvage value. For example, we replaced all the trim in the house
with newer white stuff. Rather than go out and buy shoe molding to
match, we took the old 2.5" casing and set the table saw up at 3/4",
and ripped out perfect shoe.... now I just gotta paint it.
Find someone who's finishing a basement, they can use all kinds of
stuff that you were gonna throw out. A buddy is using my laminate
scrap to make a downstairs wet bar, another is using my old kitchen
faucet on his bar.... not too mention that they took all of my old
light colored flat latex opened gallons to use as primer for their
Just a little thing we like to do, especially because we're broke.
Thank goodness for the Mennonite Housing folks, they put 8 families
together and have them build each others 8 houses together, so they're
all real good at a few things by the time they finish, then you just
gotta track down the fella who did Stairs, for example or Plumbing and
they can tell you whatever you need to know, or they'll come by and
help you out for a few beers or do the whole job for $20 hour or so.
