really nice project. . . I agree that construction sites are a gold mine of salvageable wood. I just recovered enough 2×10’s & 2×12’s to build a bridge to span a creek in my backyard. Also enough plywood and 2×4’s to remodel my shop walls. Most, if not all builders don’t mind dumpster diving . . it is less weight they have to pay for at the dump.. . . I just recommend asking them first.
