OWN home? Like, you did some "demolition" and salvaged things like windows or doors, cabinetry, siding, trim, etc. Have you ever tried to sell it? Did you have any luck?

This site http://www.nctimes.com/articles/2008/03/21/homes/batie/doc47e3dd2771b26415530624.txt suggests that you do your best to line up buyers before you start tearing things apart (That way you won't have to store those doors and windows for weeks in your garage, because you'll need that space to store the new doors and windows for weeks.)

Can't find a buyer?

Then donate ---- and snag the tax deduction ---- to Habitat for Humanity (which operates dozens of used-materials stores across the country) or other charitable salvaging operations in your own community.

None of our remodeling has resulted in anything even remotely salvageable. Oh, there was some indoor-outdoor carpet pulled out of the laundry room when we decided to tile it to match the remodeled pantry, but that wasn't worth salvaging.

By the way, you can find a list of the Habitat for Humanity ReStores here:
