This isn’t technically urban logging, but it is dealing with reclaimed timbers.
I just got off the phone with someone who is gutting a building in downtown Chicago. They are GIVING away the 100 year old joists for free! I offered to take the 60-2 1/2”x12”x22’ floor joists off their hands. There is another 120-1 1/2”x12”x24’ joists that are available if I want them also. The 60 2 1/2” joists are 3300 board feet alone. I forsee a bunch of home improvement projects, and furniture being built in my near future. They will be available in a few weeks for me to come and get them.
