“Right now we’re in the process of taking out lathe and plaster that’s in the ceiling structure here in the old church, which was built in 1892,” Shuttleworth said. “Then we’re going to take the two-by-fours and the two-by-sixes, the roof and ceiling rafters, out.”The roof’s structures consist of large beams made from heart pine, harvested from Southern longleaf pine trees that might have been two centuries or three centuries old.

Workers with Florida Victorian Architectural Salvage & Antiques are pulling out everything from floors to doors in the Gould Building, at the northwest corner of Wisconsin Avenue and Woodland Boulevard.

They are also salvaging reusable pieces from a house immediately behind it that’s also going to be torn down.

“Most of what we do we take it out by hand carefully because it’s going to be refurbished and reused,” said Mark Shuttleworth, owner of Florida Victorian, a business also located in downtown DeLand. “For instance, a big deal here will be the antique floors.”

Gemini Synergy Center aims to reclaim a quarter of waste stream | ThisWeek Community News

The GSC, according to material provided by Team Gemini, will provide its own electricity, generating the equivalent of what would be needed to power 30,000 homes. It will power the industrial park and the COR3 facility, which will serve as the main collection point for municipal solid waste and extract from the weekly waste flow 5,000 tons of recyclables — roughly a quarter of what goes into the landfill now.

The long-term plan of the project is to eventually collect all incoming waste and to tap into the landfill itself to reclaim already buried material.

“This will redirect a lot of trash from the landfill” said Franklin County Commissioner John O’Grady. “This will help the community for generations to come.”

Upcycle is part of the Institute for Workforce Innovation’s Project YouthBuild program for 16- to 24-year-olds who come from low-income households and have not earned a high school diploma or GED.

“(Upcycle) really accomplishes the goals of our organization and also helps the environment,” said Jonathan Leslie, the institute’s executive director and CEO.

Under the direction of furniture fabricator Joel Kissel and other staff, the young people turn discarded pallets made of wood such as pine and oak into home décor inside the Boys & Girls Club Mentor Center on Southeast 17th Drive.

Proceeds from the sale of Upcycle items go toward the institute’s programs and allow the organization to not have to rely on state and federal grants, Leslie said.

Some of the Project YouthBuild students and alumni participate in Upcycle, which teaches them the principles of entrepreneurship and manufacturing, according to the institute.

Dilapidated structures list: Green Street

A property on Green Street, photographed Friday, Oct. 4, in Marianna, is one of 26 on the city’s dilapidated structures list. Owners still have time to renovate or tear down targeted buildings before the city steps in to demolish them.

MARIANNA — More than two dozen neighborhood eyesores have been targeted for demolition by officials in Marianna. And for owners looking to save their property from the bulldozer, that window of opportunity is growing smaller.

In the last decade, Florida-based contractors, interior designers and builders have started to pull reusable items from torn-down homes and buildings for use in other projects.

Shambora said he tries to incorporate reused goods into every project. He keeps a phone list of demolition companies and retrieves materials like mirrors, drawers and wood when the phone rings.

“We offer something different. It’s not your cookie cutter, out-of-the-box construction company,” Shambora said.

The buying market is also strong, said Missy Monokian, director of ReStore for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Miami. The Liberty City store, which closed in March, sold used items like hurricane shutters, plumbing supplies, drywall and plywood. On an average day, Monokian said the store served several hundred people.
