  • I was wondering if it was possible to try and salvage anything from some of these properties before they are gone? It makes me sad to see such beautiful homes being uselessly destroyed. But I mean if we could save anything would be better than nothing right? I could recycle so much of these properties into my own home for that matter. Or they could at the very least go to an Architechtural Salvage house and eventually be recycled back into New Orleans Housing stock once again. If anyone knows anything at all about something like this please let me know because I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks.

    We had some experiences from architectural salvage companies. Don’t even get me started on The Green Project. Get Willie White, he’s much more rational than those guys.

  • There are a number of initiatives to require salvage of these properties.

    There are many elements which could be saved and we need to be mindful of that.

    I am hoping we see some attention paid to this issue in the next few weeks.
