great lakes yard

Open House Chicago was this past weekend. More than 350 buildings open for adventurers/explorers. Great Lakes Yard in Garfield Park was an interesting surprise.

Located in a large bow-and-truss warehouse on Lake Street, Great Lakes Yard salvages old growth lumber.

The warehouse is a natural history museum of sorts for visitors. A box of old mallets.

A clover-shaped stool fashioned from a tree trunk.

And random boards and boxes.
