What a steal on the Hoffman case! Cool! I wish I knew of a place here in washington. They might have a few at Boieng surplus though. I'll have to look next time I'm down there.

Surplus in Washington
 
Travis: There is a place in Bellingham that has lots of used/surplus building supplies. Can't remember the name but can look it up if you want it.

In my current build I have found the 2B's saves lots of money. Begging and Borrowing

Borrow Tools:
I borrowed the rail cutting saw and grinding setup, took care of them, kept them clean and saved on buying!
Borrow the welder, Horses whatever!

Beg:
So many people have sheds full of jars of Fasteners they will never use. I begged a bucket full of 5/8UNF grade 8's and other stuff.
Computers, just find a kid about 16yo they will be looking to upgrade their computer sooner then later.
Steel, using purlins that were retired to a back yard heap of someone

With the 2B's the worst you get is a "No"

Travis: It is the ReStore. Here is a link to their web site. Mostly building stuff but some electrical/hardware. I found a tone of cedar molding there once, did all my cabinet tops with it.

Good Luck.

Nils and Joe,

I went out today to check out this re-store and it was like a big home based materials thrift store. All the stuff was used stuff that was salvaged off of demo'd houses. Like doors, windows, molding and etc.... I didn't find anything that I neede today, but was good to go and check it out.
