What is deconstruction?
In the simplest of terms, deconstruction means home remodeling and reconstruction that is done by dismantling the home or the building in such a manner so as to not damage the valuable building material.
The purpose of the approach is to reuse and recycle the same building material in order to reconstruct the home in a newer and the latest fashion as per the new design.
Deconstructing may not be as easy as it sounds!
It may sound idealistic and easy to tear down the building material and rip down the building in a manner to be so careful to not cause even the minimum amount of damage and then to store all the material right so as to not cause them to be damaged and then using them in the most appropriate manner in the reconstruction, checking their vulnerability and strength before recycling them in the new home. It can create quite some stress to be able to do all of that.

2. Cost effective and more money at your disposal:
Deconstruction means spending the lesser amount of money on newer construction material and that will translate into a swell wallet. Just imagine; the extras that you can do to your haven with all the saved cash!
3. The philanthropic angle:
If you think that even after the careful dismantling of your fixtures and appliances, you rather have newer ones for yourself and if they are still in a working condition, you could pass them on to people who deserve them. There are several organizations who would love to have you donate the appliances and they would recycle it and help the people who are beneficiaries of community development projects.
4. Tax benefits:
This is one of the best reasons if you are ever lazy to deconstruct your home. The receipt that you can acquire at these community development projects and institutions can help you get tax benefits to the tune of thousands of dollars.
