Where Does Reclaimed Lumber Come From?

Do you have reclaimed timber for sale?

The sourcing comes from the likes of old dairy and tobacco barns, churches and old commercial buildings such as factories and warehouses. Dry-docked boats and ironically old sawmills are intriguing origins for timbers with personality.

Take a look at the origin of some of our current stock of Reclaimed Timber.

“We gleaned 12″ planks from the, rafters and from the anchor beams. The flooring and sleeper beams were 100 per cent White Oak. The poles, which were added turn of the century when the barn was converted to a tobacco barn were suspended across the livestock stalls and used for drying the tobacco leaves. They are especially rare, not just with the antiquity of them but, they were in great shape with the added benefit from the enzymatic changes of the drying tobacco leaves leaching into the beams. These beams came from White Oak and were hand hewn on two sides, with the remaining two sides still in the log form, from which we were able to saw 14″ wide planks. The added benefit from this formation was the sawing method of cutting through and through, commonly referred to as “live sawn”. Within each wide plank, sawn by this method, there are a host of grain patterns.”
