Home deconstruction is an environmentally sound, cost effective way to remodel or tear down a house. Home deconstruction is an environmentally sound, cost effective way to remodel or tear down a house. Tear downs and large remodels are booming right now in this part of the City and we are an option that diverts up to 90-100% of the building materials from the landfill. It's environmental, cost saving, and creates local jobs.

ReStores are Habitat for Humanity’s retail stores that sell donated new overstocked, gently used, discontinued items, and salvageable building materials to the public at reduced prices—typically 50-80% off retail.

Items include quality construction supplies, appliances, kitchen cabinetry, lighting, furniture, and home décor. ReStore sales help sponsor Habitat homes (6 Twin Cities Habitat homes last year).
Donated items are tax deductible. The ReStore keeps 2 million pounds of usable material out of Twin Cities landfills each year.
