Salvaging wood from attic demolition worth it?
I'm planning to add a full second floor to my 1.5 storey bungalow. The house was built in 1927, and the joists and rafters are solid heartwood of (I'm guessing here) 4x8. I'd hate to see them destroyed during demolition, and it would be great to re-use them for the new second floor, either for structural or decorative purposes. Is it practical to salvage them? Is it going to be just too expensive? Is there a company that does this sort of thing?
