Montecito Deconstruction Project with LUA

Please visit our NEW WEBSITES:

Deconstruction offers many benefits. Potentially it can preserve architectural details and building materials of value, create jobs and support the work of non-profits, provide tax benefits to the homeowner and divert usable material from landfills. Recently, Bill McCullough, our Santa Barbara/Ventura area representative, and I worked with Leonard Unander Associates (LUA), Inc. on a deconstruction project in Montecito. With this particular project, we saw all of these benefits come to fruition. Beautiful materials were preserved and donated to charitable organizations, the homeowner will net a cost savings and 65 tons of material, including rough lumber, roofing tiles and finished materials, did not end up in a landfill. An added benefit is that we have found a great advocate for reuse and deconstruction in LUA. We are thrilled for their support and blog post!
