My brother, sporting tool belt, is ready to take down the old Model T garage on our father’s property. The small building has unusual triangle-shaped windows that were boarded up long ago and a weathered white side door. We are saving all the doors to recycle for decorative purposes. The outside of the building was sided with tin panels, which Bud is also going to salvage. The support beams are 2 X 6’s that will be saved for other building projects. It is a lot of work but old buildings often contain better material than we use today.
We will load up our truck this summer and transport the doors to Wisconsin to be used in our daughter and son-in-law’s finished basement. They are finishing part of it like a rustic fishing shack. One of the doors has two old license plates nailed to the back which makes it especially charming. Vintage is “in.”
