I dropped by one of my favourite shops today. It’s a recycle shop just out of Brisbane city called “the Demolition Shop”. It has everything from old doors to taps to original stair treads.
They collect all the building materials from old houses and stockpile them for sale.
It’s a great place to find original period pieces for restoring old timber Queenslander houses. I’m looking for some big French doors to suit the cottage for the bathroom. I want to build a deck out the back for the bathroom to open up onto.
This shop has so much awesome old stuff. You have to be careful not to get too excited and lose your head.
