Abandoned Homes in Detroit: The Salvage Sanctuary

The city of Detroit is on a mission to rid itself of its large number abandoned homes. The amount of abandoned homes in Detroit skyrocketed after much of the industry left the city. I am proposing that these pieces be brought in order for people across the country and around world could purchase them from physical location or online marketplaces--I think it's an incredible idea! The Pavilion would have sections where you could see what was salvageable, depending upon your needs: windows without glass; boards off trees with usable wood remaining inside (enough for firewood maybe?) And there would also b e brick paving stones ready-to lay down if desired as well . This project does not only help clean up our beautiful earth but creates new financial and creative opportunities to the people of Detroit.
The vacant, abandoned homes in Detroit are a major problem. I am suggesting that the pieces of these structures can be brought to one location for sorting and curating them before they go online or off-site sale with an option at physical proximity where buyers will have access throughout their purchase process from start criteria selection all way through payment processing
The pavilion consists largely out salvaged woodwork such as windows and bricks which gives it not just another look but also provides insight about itself by asking questions like "What do you think happened here?"
