Lost & Found :: Rescued & Recycled Resale

I am finally getting back to working on the window sign. Just in case you forgot...the old wood plaques were salvaged from my friend, Kenny's, yard in Keosauqua. Then my friend, Tom, sanded them clean. Yesterday I stained the plaques. The virtually odorless Rubio Monocoat USA stain is from Green Building Supply. I just used the leftovers from the five sample-sized bottles I bought when I was deciding on a color for the old oak floor in the front room. I like how it looks so far!

(Nothing is random. Everything is a carefully thought out act of creation!)

The next step is putting together a final draft of my lettering for the sign. After that I will send off a picture to Michael Dearborn at the Fairfield MakerSpace to have the letters crafted by their 3-D printer! Each letter in "LOST & FOUND" will be affixed to one plaque.

Thanks for reading and for your continued support and encouragement as we progress with this labor of love....

Hi friends, how do we leave a question on the Q&A area of site? You have lots of instructions about when to leave one, but no instructions or areas to actually leave one. Thanks!
Most important thing, missing on your site, ADDRESS? l am in San Clemente, Ca.
Looking or ECO SAFECOAT in Orange County, Ca. ?
What dimensions are your maroleum samples?
Do you value home performance and health equally? We (Casey Cronin and Davìda Carta)do! However, many U.S builders and homeowner obsess over home performance, while not considering 1) air quality, and 2) the ability for the structure to dry out! Does it make sense to fall asleep with a smile knowing your house energy’s performance is great WHILE breathing toxic air? Take a moment to consider this...nope, not acceptable! We are victims of clever marketing fueled by big oil's investments in the building industry. Educate yourselves people, and live in a house that will take care of your wallet and your health!!! Buildings components from 475 High Performance Building Supply and Green Building Supply are getting it done right for us🤙
New studio floor is in! Come practice on it. All Friday classes are ON! Green Building Supply recommended the A+ environmental flooring- Marmolium by Forbo. It’s linoleum click tiles with cork bottom. What’s old is new! And - there’s still time to join us for Detox & Flow. (85 people and counting are already signed-up.) It’s going to be fun! www.ripoweryoga.com

Beautiful report in the Ledger
Hi! I'm looking into stone or tile flooring, and a finish for a wood tabletop that I'll be preparing with steel wool (it's about 20 years old and a lot of the old finish is worn off. It's a cheap light oak). Do you carry either of those? I'm having trouble finding them if you do...
Good morning ,Green Building Supply !
Hey guys! We really appreciate your efforts to supply us with green materials! BUT- your mark up on products is a bit ridiculous! Is it really necessary for you to capitalize so much on the consumers desire to protect their families and communities from harmful materials? Why can I walk into a big evil box store and pay half the price you charge per square foot for the exact same product? We want to support you but it just doesn't pencil out.
