Good Wood is a deconstruction & salvage company located in Portland, Oregon. We provide deconstruction services for residential buildings and offer an affordable option for salvaged old-growth lumber. 



We believe that by removing and reusing centuries old lumber, we honor and inherit the energy of old.



In the last ten years, there has been a significant uptick in residential and commercial development in Portland, Oregon. This has led to an increase in the demolition of older and historic homes. Demolition raises significant community concerns about health, waste, and neighborhood character. In July 2015, Portland, Oregon became the first city in the nation to require full deconstruction of houses built in 1916 or prior. These homes account for approximately 1/3 of the 300+ homes being removed each year in Portland.



Deconstruction is a method of harvesting what is commonly considered “waste” and reclaiming it as useful building material. The selective dismantling of a structure can save up to 85 percent of materials for reuse. Deconstruction focuses on giving the materials within a building a new life once the building as a whole can no longer continue.




Good Wood contractors are trained and certified by the city of Portland, Oregon. Following the guidelines set forth in the deconstruction ordinance, our knowledgable team will transform your unwanted structure into a cleared, clean, build-able lot. We guarantee safe, effective and efficient work. 

Deconstruction is construction in reverse: utilizing disassembly to remove an unwanted structure.


Everything you need to build anything you want. Flooring, wall clad, 1x, 2x, beams and oddities salvaged from 100+ year old homes we deconstructed in portland, oregon. All of our wood is old growth, rough sawn, reclaimed fir.
