This photo shows some of the reclaimed studs we have utilized for framing out the new restrooms and storage closet mixed in with a few new studs. As you can see, these studs were once covered with slats and old plaster which preserved them quite well. These 80 year old studs are just as strong or stronger than todays common spruce/pine/fir 2x4's. Their reuse allows us to consume less new wood and to produce less waste.
