My house and garden shed being constructed. I used post and beam methods and so-called found materials. The thing about "found" materials is a willingness to ask around for the owner of a house or barn that has fallen in on itself. After obtaining permission to salvage this dubious material, be prepared to burn most of it. It still seems like a good deal to get free fire wood and material to build with for the price of one's time.
