The Most Rustic Appearance

In the market right now, there is a growing demand for using timbers reclaimed from old buildings such as churches, barns, factories, schoolhouses, and the like to be used in the new construction of timber frame homes. This option is environmentally conscious while also giving your home a unique story.

If your preference is to use reclaimed timbers in the construction of your home, contact us at as early in the process as possible, especially if you are looking for a specific species of wood.

 

Sourcing from Sustainable Mills

We take care to ensure our timbers are responsibility and sustainably harvested. These practices provide more timber growth than harvest each year. In fact, forestland acreage in North America has been stable for more than 100 years.
