A Message from Our Founders

TO OUR FRIENDS,

It is with a very heavy heart that we closed our doors in March 2022. In spite of our incredible team, we were unable to make the sales necessary to sustain our overhead in 2021.

We are down, but not out! Think of this moment as hibernation while we wait for new growth in our industry. We are confident that with some retooling of our model and the right partners we will build back stronger. Specifically we need two things:

  1. A contractor interested in operating an independent deconstruction business. We have the leads and can provide the training.
  2. A marketing/PR wiz to mainstream zero-waste/circular economy within the interior design community.

If you are either of these people or know them, please reach out!

Before I sign off, I would like to remember how much we've accomplished. Hand-in-hand with our donors, industry partners and customers we were able to divert over 1,000,000 lbs of building materials from landfill (over 500 MTCO2e).

Thanks to our dynamo design team, Juliann Berens and Rochelle Talwar, we also designed over one hundred kitchens and baths using ReFind materials. *See some of their amazing work in our project gallery!

Thanks to Carlos, our one-man sales team, we contributed to a countless number of other projects around the county and country. Please continue to keep reused materials in mind for your projects! Habitat for Humanity ReStores, Architectural Salvage, Builders Trading Company, and secondary markets (e.g. Craigslist and OfferUp) remain local resources for building materials looking for their second life.

We look forward to being of service again soon. Until then, we wish you all the best.

Sincerely,
David + Juliann
