 We would love to be able to use vintage materials for our storage barn. We are particularly looking for vintage vertical board-and-batten barn siding (about 1300 board ft + 130 battens) that someone is willing to donate or sell at a modest cost. We would be willing to remove the boards from the structure. Because GRG is a not-for-profit organization, all donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. We will provide letters detailing donations for tax purposes. Also, we carry full liability insurance covering our salvage operations and can provide the donor a Certificate of Insurance.
