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┬áresold in the group’s Architectural Rescue Shop that┬áraises money for neighborhood projects by salvaging, accepting and selling vintage items.
