The woman who told me about The Loading Dock credits it with enabling her and her husband to completely renovate their kitchen and two bathrooms for under $2,000.
It’s in Baltimore but well worth the trip if you’re a do-it-yourselfer and have some costly home-improvement projects coming up. There are no income restrictions for members.
From the website:
