Nonprofit groups salvage materials from Genesis homes

100714-house-harvest-03Mel Rullman, left, and Don Ague, volunteers with Habitat ReStore, remove nails from oak trim Tuesday outside a home at 2227 Esplanade Ave., Davenport. ReStore sells new and gently used building materials to raise money for Habitat for Humanity-Quad-Cities. Other items the group salvaged from the house and others in the area that are scheduled for demolition include toilets, a bathroom vanity and window wells.

The wood will be resold in the group’s Architectural Rescue Shop that raises money for neighborhood projects by salvaging, accepting and selling vintage items.
