LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Lexington Habitat for Humanity doesn't just help build homes for families, it can also help with your kitchen remodeling project with its deconstruction services.

"It's a specialized team that removes kitchen cabinets, appliances, counter tops, sinks and other fixtures from people's homes," said Deconstruction Project Manager Jake Lederman.

It is also free to the homeowner and the donation may be tax-deductible.

The team will then take the carefully removed items and sell them at a Habitat ReStore, giving new life to your old kitchen.

"We sell them for a very affordable price so folks are able to get good quality items for cheaper than they'd be able to find at a big box store," said Lederman.

Proceeds from the sales then help fund habitat's build and repair projects.

"Generally, we stay pretty steady," said Lederman. "Lexington's a developing city. We actually have one of the most generous populations of all the ReStores across the country in the city of Lexington, so they keep us working."
