    You built a small home without any construction experience? That's crazy, did you just use youtube videos and google to gain the information or what? I assume you were a carpenter before hand?

    so true - my brother had so much building material free . He got his material just like you have from job sites that needed clean up or what ever.

    I always wonder do construction sites dump all those unwanted material in the landfill. I see so many useful recyclable material in these dumpster. Unbelievable.

    another way, we created a "free or barter" page on facebook for our area, we allow nothing to be sold on it, only people giving or wanting free stuff or people wanting to trade with each other

    My wife would call you a hoarder. She thinks the government will take care of everyone. Right

    Some good points here on getting stuff on the cheap. Another way is checking out what people put out on the street for trash pick up if you are in a city or even rural areas. Sometimes you can find some decent stuff the people just don't want anymore.

    New subscriber here, thanks for the great videos man. I love salvaging and recycling material. The amount of materials out there that can be reused, and gotten for free with a little bit of work is amazing. There are building materials everywhere that people can get for nothing, just need to look.
