From Jacket:
Salvaging is a process that demands sound organization, knowledge of proper dismantling technique, and an awareness of the best ways to utilize the salvaged material. In Salvaging Old Barns and Houses: Tear It Down and Save the Pieces, Lawrence and Kathleen Abrams use their expertise, garnered through years of trial and error, to explore the entire salvaging process - from the first search for a salvage site to the final cleanup.

This is the definitive handbook, combining easy-to-follow instructions with a concise, step-by-step approach starting with the very basics of salvaging. You will discover:
• Ways to find a suitable work site and competent employees
• How to get complete insurance coverage
• Fundamental safety precautions
• The proper tools needed on the work site

Once this solid foundation is established, the dismantling procedure for the interiors and exteriors of both barns and houses is meticulously detailed and highlighted by dozens of enlightening photographs, with individual attention given to the fixtures, cabinets, doors, flooring, windows, plumbing, shingles, siding, and scores of other treasures that can be extracted from barns and houses.

Special sections in this thorough guide not only supply helpful hints on hauling, storage, and selling techniques, but also show how weathered wood, beams, and brick can become part of a beautiful room decor. The information revealed within these covers and the energy provided by you are the keys to salvage material that can add that special rustic warmth to your room, replace worn-out parts in your home, or simply provide a market for eager buyers!
