Good reference material is provided like the definition of what is salvage, how to shop for salvage, how to set-up a workshop and in the back of the book, listing of salvage resources in 34 states.
Personal preference will dictate whether the projects may interest the reader, but no matter what, the book illustrates many examples of what may be done with salvage materials and in doing so provide a place to begin the creative process and customize a home.
