Re: Unusual Conservation Job.


That is definitely quite unusual. Just in time for Halloween.


Thanks for sharing.

I would say that is stupid generally, but it is too cool for that. Well Done!

Re: Unusual Conservation Job.


When I was about 14 I helped disassemble an old poorly maintained timber framed barn with a loose hay loft.

I remember using one of the stable boards later and how it would smell like cow manure whenever the humidity was high for several years......

My Grandpa kept several 5 gallon buckets of the used nails we pulled, just in case....

I love to visit museums, I don't want to live in a museum piece (cow barn).

I have a good buddy who is a 84 yr. old excavator. He has many,many buckets of used nails in his shops.Funny thing is,he could probably buy and sell nail factories all day long if he wanted to.

That's one way of keeping the weather from doing any more damage.

Re: Unusual Conservation Job.


FJN: My 1/45th of his estate paid the down payment on my first house......He and Grandma had nine kids(Mom and aunts and uncles), and I had Four live siblings(9 x 5)

used,mostly straightened bent nails do hold more then straight new ones.... but its hard to make even minimum wage recycling nails, dumber then cleaning brick, it is just a handyman's OCD.....

Re: Unusual Conservation Job.


I am usually open to weird projects but I don't like that one. It would have been a lot better to reconstruct a portion of the house and incorporate it in a non failing manner. Or incorporate the material. Nothing to good about what they did.
