    I recently went to the Habitat for Humanity web site out of curiosity after seeing their signs in the Highland Park development and found a great resource. I remember vaguely hearing about their warehouse in the past, but had forgotten. If you are doing any home projects and want to stretch your budget, this is a great way to help someone else at the same time. In a nutshell, they sell some of their donated materials at great savings. Here is the link:

    Wow, you have a dishwasher?

    I’m sure I’ll be checking this place out, thanks for the tip.

    Jan – Larry is the ‘rinse cycle’ of course, I’ve been a pro at handwashing dishes for a long time.

    Nice find GenHillOne !

    You’re motivating me to work even more on my house.

    Erik, I’ve never owned a dishwasher either and I like it :)

    Not to be a handwashing spoiler, but I think Consumer Reports has done some testing which indicates that using a dishwasher to rinse and clean uses less water than hand rinsing & washing.

    Of course a d/w doesn’t make a ton of sense for single people, but for bigger households I think they’re pretty necessary.

    hey, I’m a single person, and I use my dishwasher about twice a week…and in between it hides the dirty dishes until it’s full..I love it.

    Erik…lucky dog Larry :)

    I have a table-top d/w that I used when I was single – loved it! Did a great job!

    The Habitat outlet is amazing. Tons of everything you could need to work on your house. Tiles, screws, glue, appliances, furniture, windows…You see where I am going with this.

    Don’t forget our own Second Use Building Material (not quite west seattle, but closer than Ballard).

    They have 20,000 sqft of space down near the transfer station.

    Second Use Building Materials

    7953 2nd Ave S. Seattle, WA 98108

    206-763-6929 seattle@seconduse.com

    I usually look there first before I head out to Ballard when I am looking for something. They have some cool stuff. They recently had a “Found Art” show and they often offer classes.

    Earthwise has also been one of my favorite places to plunder for unique finds. It’s a great place for doors, trim, tile (etc) but they don’t have appliances.

    I’m a huge fan of the Habitat Outlet. They also have a series of FREE home improvement workshops too. This weekend they have someone from the Garden Hotline giving a talk on Composting at Home.

    10:30 am, Sat 10/25 – you can find out more details at http://www.seattlehabitatoutlet.org

    Other upcoming workshops are on Greening your home and improving your home air quality. I’ve been to an eco-friendly gardeing workshop too – it was great!
