Reclaiming the materials

ALL of our materials are reclaimed from SOMEWHERE, but first let me clarify that we do NOT scour the country side looking for or asking for these materials. We are not about taking the beauty away from anyone! We are contacted by various "entities" and that is how the process begins. It could be just an 18-wheeler truckload of Hand Hewn beams and the ever popular WEATHERED GREY BARNWOOD from a simple homestead barn in Ohio, river logs sunken at the bottom of a river where sawmills would pop up along the river banks, the complete cabin that Abraham Lincoln paused at in Maryland during the Battle of Antietam or larger demo companies carefully removing the first Zenith and Helene Curtis factories in Chicago, IL!! From a crew of approx 2-6 tearing down the small homestead barn in your backyard all the way up to skyscrapers in the "big city" with demolition companies employing 600+ we reclaim and recycle it all because ONCE IS NOT ENOUGH! 

From this...

to this...

to the finished product!

     We offer a wide variety of materials and species, some we are able to offer to customers at all times, some could be only available for a short time or until sold out. We sell the materials AS IS and we also offer a few types of "finishing" here, such as Sandblasting, Planing smooth, walnut hull blasting, sawn to size, grinding and waxing with Briwax (interior) or Waterlox (exterior) protectant/sealer. Our materials are protected from the past and prepared for the future by either the kiln or the use of Boracare. The kiln involves heat treating the reclaimed wood to make sure that there are no bugs or larvae in any of the wood. This heat treating process is a safe and healthier alternative to harsh chemical fumigation processes that can infuse into the wood. The entire process is controlled for the best results without sacrificing the quality of the reclaimed wood. Bora-Care continues to be the prime choice for those looking to protect our surroundings. Unlike soil treatments, Bora-Care is not a threat to the plant life or water supply of a home. With its mineral salt, borate-based formula, Bora-Care is made with natural elements that are already present in the ecosystems outside our homes. You can click on the words above for more detailed information on these treatments.

Cypress

This is the most insect and rot resistant wood. Mild variation in the grain pattern with great consistency in color. It "flows" well together and its surroundings!
