I’ve always found enjoyment in working with my hands, repairing things, salvaging someone else’s trash. In 2008, my wife and I bought a 110 year old house. Although the house has been well taken care of over the years, it needs updating throughout and we’ve had fun doing that. We have a lot of projects under our belt, and many more ahead of us before we’ll call it done. I’m glad I found this community to share stories and learn some things along the way.

I agree! It’s fun making something out of other people’s trash, which usually turns out not to be trash at all! If you look at some of the facts on this dumpster rental website you would be amazed at how wasteful our country has become in every category. Not just food, but electronics, construction and general household items. So, I’m definitely glad to see more “green” haulers joining this community. We could certainly use more of them to get waste management back into shape.

Welcome to the community.You’re quite lucky. With older homes, you never know what you’ll be getting in to. While older homes certainly posses character and charm, they will need constant updating. Cracked windows, old appliances, mismatched floor tiles all need to be fixed. Try tackling one room at a time. Gather all the waste in one spot and consider hiring a dumpster rental company to rent a small dumpster. That way, you can get rid of all the waste in 1 shot. Good luck and please post regular photos of your completed projects.
