Amicus Green Building Supplies
Amicus Green is in an unprepossessing storefront on Howard Avenue with little outside advertising. This wasn’t the Home Depot. As we walked in and I saw the crowded warehouse-like conditions, I asked Peter, “What exactly are we doing here?”
Before Peter had a chance to answer, the owner, Jason Holstine, recognized him and introduced himself to me. I still thought we were just there on a shopping trip, but Jason asked us to sit down and wait for him to finish a phone call. On the way to the area where we were going to sit down, I marveled at the glass-shard-based countertop materials and the array of flooring materials, many of which were made of bamboo. I saw a tubular skylight and happily recognized it as something Joe Keiger, the man who sold me his house in November, had put into his house. I could save it and reuse it.
(c/o Mary McCutcheon) The amount of light it channels through the roof is huge and yet I don’t think it brings in heat. I might even get a couple more so that the end of my kitchen can be a green house for my plants as well as an aviary for my parakeets.
