Inspiring Salvage Contest

Reprinted from the Post-Gazette on Saturday, August 20, 2011

To the uninitiated or those with no imagination, Construction Junction looks like a warehouse jammed with junk.  But regulars know this nonprofit in Point Breeze is filled with pure potential.

It’s the best and most inexpensive place to find leftover and surplus doors, windows, tile and other building materials to renovate or transform a home or business.

If you have found inspiration in salvage, the PG and CJ want to hear from you.  In conjunction with the Steel City Big Pour craft beer tasting fund-raiser on Sept. 10 at Construction Junction, you’re invited to send photos and a short essay explaining how you’ve used salvage material, where you got them and how your project is unique.  It can be a creative re-use of one or more items or an entire room or building.

The top three winners receive two tickets to the sold-out Big Pour and a chance to show off their handiwork in the Post-Gazette that day and at the PG booth.  Other entries will appear online at www.post-gazette.com and CJ's web site.

Enter online only.  Entry deadline is Sept. 7.

Information: www.post-gazette.com, kkirkland@post-gazette.com or 412-263-1978.

CJ Q&A

So I hear the Big Pour sold out in record time.  Is that true?

Yup... there were over a thousand folks logged into the ShowClix queue right after tickets went on sale and all available tickets were sold in less than an hour.  Pretty amazing!  -- Cozmo
