Barn Frames

 

 As wood ages, its color deepens and becomes increasingly beautiful. Also, the cellular structure of the wood becomes clear and luminous as air slowly dries the layered cells of the wood, creating a translucence, so that when the wood is finished, light seems to be emanating deep from within.

Our beautiful old growth forests are diminishing rapidly throughout the world. It would be an inestimable tragedy to our Earth if we were to lose the last ancient forests forever. In this generation we are in a unique, pivotal position and can exert our influence by specifying which wood is to be used. Approximately 50 trees are used to make a floor of 2000 square feet. By using wood reclaimed from buildings that can no longer be restored, we preserve our last living old growth forests. This, perhaps, is the greatest contribution of aged wood.

Our Barn Frame wood comes from century old barns that are no longer in use or one that are being torn down. We believe in re-using the old barn wood not only becuase it saves new trees, but the barn frames posses a color, texture and a one-of-a-kind uniquness. that no other wood has. The frames can be used for floors, siding, fencing, and decking.
