Recycled Attic Stairs

We have been looking to replace our attic stairs that basically disintegrated from age. Got an estimate from Lowe's that was over $600!

We rent, so really my landlady would have paid, but thought I would keep looking. We are planning on buying our own home soon, and I really wanted the stairs fixed before we moved, but haven't been finding any cheaper alternatives.

My husband and I were riding bikes a few days ago, when he spotted a dumpster beside a home that was being worked on. On the very top of the dumpster they were throwing away a used set of attic stairs. I asked the workmen if we could have them, and they said yes. My husband came back to pick up the stairs, and 'paid' the men with snacks from our stockpile.

So less than 24 hours of starting, my husband and brother installed the used stairs with success! Saved the landlady some money too! Hope she appreciates it.

Never thought they would fit, as we are in an older home, and one of the reasons the estimate was high is that our steps are different in dimension than what they sell now. Seems like it was meant to be! So proud of my husband :-)

And as I was leaving the house while he was working on them, my daughter and I drove past a sink and countertop someone was throwing out. I said to her, 'uh oh...next it's a new sink!' (nothing wrong with our sink thankfully). Of course later on he said 'did you see that sink?! Too bad it's gone...'

We laughed, and told told him we thought the same thing! Neat the things you can recycle (or sell).
