In The Yard (usually) at Building REsources

Building REsources has a unique blend of practical, strange and innovative offerings.  In the coming months, we will be working to help better demarcate the regular sections in the yard, highlight unique finds and educate the greater public about the amazing potential that resides in the concept of reuse.  Most of the regulars know what kind of gems one can stumble upon here but even the regulars have grandiose tales to tell of reclaimed materials they found no where else but BR.  Join this mini-revolution on the industrial shores of San Francisco’s bay, we are open every day from 9:00-4:30pm.  As a nonprofit organization, Building REsources partly operates through a generous grant from the San Francisco Department of the Environment.  Here is a breakdown of what we offer the community.
