The TerraCotta Construction Team is Keeping it
Reuse, reduce and recycle have been the words spoken on TerraCottas latest construction project. They demolished a home and are rebuilding a new one without the use of a dumpster and minimal waste to our landfills.

For example, brick from the old home is being reused on the new garage while waste lumber, shingles and cardboard were mulched for erosion control on the job site. Old drywall was recycled for future soil applications, and bins have been set up around the property to recycle soda, glass and water bottles.

TerraCotta would like to thank their entire team for all their efforts to keep a “green” job site.

Volunteer for the Decatur Book Festival
The Decatur Book Festival takes place Labor Day Weekend, September 3 – September 5 and Georgia's literary leaders are coming together to create a world class book festival!
