About Community Forklift
Step into a shadowy warehouse, full of forgotten treasures waiting for a new home. The architectural-salvage shop raises money for community assistance like the Home Essentials Program and the Community Building Blocks Program. Community Forklift collects home and garden supplies from around the Washington region as well as salvaged lumber and fixtures from deconstructed homes. Their reuse center contains 40,000 square feet of lumber, tools, masonry, architectural salvage, and more. For those restoring an older home or with vintage tastes, or those just looking for a bargain, the warehouse is packed with such finds as enameled cast-iron sinks, reclaimed flooring, hard-to-find hardware, gently-used appliances, kitchen cabinets, granite counters and a steady stream of retro furniture and fixtures.
Purchasing supplies here has plenty more benefits: Community Forklift uses its inventory and proceeds to reduce construction-industry waste and demand for natural resources, create local green jobs, make home improvement more affordable, and distribute free supplies to local nonprofits and neighbors in need. And if you're unsure how to get started on your own DIY projects, Community Forklift hosts lots of workshop on topics ranging from home carpentry to upcycling.
