I was lounging in one of my favorite restaurants the other day and just realized all the wood there is recycled. Maybe that’s why the ambience is so nice. The cooling system is another plus. Sprinklers water the roof and then the water trickles off into a fish pond in the center. In addition to cooling the open air restaurant, the sound is very soothing. Anyway, I love the character of old wood. The photos above are worth a thousand words, so I’ll keep this short. Recycled wood can save you money, help save the environment AND look great.
