The first settlers in America selected trees on site to construct their barns and homes and out-buildings. Today, individuals love to make use of this reclaimed wood when building or remodeling. The history of the piece adds to the ambiance of the area. The wood used in this manner comes from barns, factories, houses, stables, mills, and more, and many pieces are hundreds of years old. What makes this wood truly unique and highly coveted?
Reclaimed lumber pieces are truly one of a kind. The different species underwent decades or centuries of weathering and wear to obtain their current appearance, or “patina”. As a result, each piece is unique, and the wood varies by where it was first obtained and how and where it was used in the structure. The settlers rarely discriminated when it came to the wood used for the structure, what they had available on their land was generally their only option, so a person could find many varieties of reclaimed wood all coming from the same region.
Additionally, reclaimed wood typically offers more variations that are no longer seen in wood species. For instance, as trees in the past were allowed to grow to their full potential, the rings observed in this timber tend to be much closer together than seen in newer pieces. These pieces often have more knots and other markings from their use that make the piece unique and give it charm.
Lastly, if a person is fortunate enough to know where the wood came from, the piece becomes an interesting topic of conversation. We do our best to provide everyone with a backstory on where their piece originated. When someone asks, you can not only explain what it is, but also provide information on where it came from and what made or makes it special. That simply doesn’t happen with pieces that are mass produced today.
