    Hi Danny, great video! You are right on in the end, though most reclaimed materials we see these days are usually quite a bit more in cost there are still a lot of products that are reasonably prices.

    Another thing to consider when using reclaimed wood is trying to find a local source. This will eliminate energy used when transporting (such as shipping overseas) and will help support the local economy, not to mention the rich local history behind the wood.
