Salvage savior

While taking care of some framing details around the windows and doors, I ran out of construction screws! Not good. I am not in the mood to run an errand for screws!

And I did not need to. I lucked out and found a bunch of salvaged screws that we saved during the deconstruction process.


They were the right size and gauge and kept me going for the rest of the day.
