Similar to that, in my city, there's a place which recycles household
fixtures, such as doors, that have been recovered from renovation or
demolition projects.  They're often of good quality and, of course,
cost a lot less than brand new.

Maybe there's one like that close by and, if so, it might be worth checking out.
