Heritage Salvage TV Show Pilot Airs Sunday April 9th, 2017, at 8PM PST

This is a pilot for a series of shows on DIY TV by Michael "Bug" Deakin and his crew of recyclers from Heritage Salvage in Petaluma, California.

Bug says: "All across America, century-old structures are falling down and forgotten -- but I believe these buildings deserve a second chance."

Here's a 40-second sneak preview of the pilot, which airs this Sunday:

Also, if you're ever in Petaluma, stop by Heritage at 1473 Petaluma Blvd.. They have 300,000 board feet of used lumber, a ton of table-top slabs cut from large trees, some beautiful wide t&g flooring milled from windfall Maple trees, etc. Check their stock out at: https://heritagesalvage.com

Highway One Closure South of Stinson Beach


This is just north of Steep Ravine. Looks like it will be closed for a while. This is going to make for madness on Panoramic (the mountain road) for cars heading to Stinson from San Francisco this summer.
