Saving money by urban logging #3: 3300 boardfeet of reclaimed douglas fir!

They are GIVING away the 100 year old joists for free! I offered to take the 60-2 1/2”x12”x22’ floor joists off their hands. There is another 120-1 1/2”x12”x24’ joists that are available if I want them also. The 60 2 1/2” joists are 3300 board feet alone.
