Bell Tower Beam Salvage.

Trinity Church’s bell tower in lower Manhattan. A few years back Trinity Church added new bells to the tower, and had to cut out some beams to make room. We got a call from a Trinity employee on lunch break, telling us that there were some beams on the curb that were headed for the trash.  During the call we had to commit to the whole pile or nothing, so sight unseen we said yes. A Uhaul rental and help from a friend we had the beams wrapped up under three tarps behind a one bedroom apt in Brooklyn. Most of the beams are 4″ x 12″ and are various lengths.

Pictured below are some of the things we have done with the beams.
