    Recycling of old growth redwood timber

    To whom it may concern
    My name is Don Smith, I am a project coordinator in the building department for the city of Oakland, CA. I am a part of the City team working on the demolition and deconstruction of a number of warehouses at the former Oakland Army Base. Having grown up in Ohio I was familiar with some of the Amish communities in my state, and I remember that there were several barn raisings that took place as I was growing up. The warehouses at the base will be demolished and deconstructed, and in that regard I was wondering if your community would be interested in salvaging the redwood timbers from the warehouses? If you would like any of this timber let me know and I will start finding out what must be done to make this transfer possible.

    treadle sewing machine

    I’m trying to find an Amish community who would be interested in an old Singer treadle sewing machine in a cabinet. I thought I heard there was a settlement near Julian Ca. I am in southern CA.
