About

The salvage by the sea is the restoration of our 1915 Cape Cod beach cottage located in the town of Ocean Park, Washington.   Our passion to return our home to her original glory began by naming her “True Love” after the sailboat in the movie ” The Philadelphia Story”.

We have done all of the work to the house ourselves.  Our commitment is to use salvaged and recycled materials as much as possible. This includes building materials as well as furniture and fixtures.   Living near Portland, Oregon is a huge plus giving us access to The Rebuilding Center and multiple Restore Habitat for Humanity stores.  Sharing our projects is intended to encourage others to reuse, recycle and restore their homes.
