About Our Beam Products:
In the past, barns and stables were the center of America’s agrarian culture. These structures were built with care and craftsmanship and since families relied on the structural integrity of these buildings for survival, each one was supported by the strongest beams available. In using the best materials for support, families could feel confident that their animals and harvest would be protected from the elements. As the nature of our society continues to change, old barns – together with aging factories and industrial buildings – are now being reclaimed for the quality of the old growth wood and timbers used to construct them. The strength and character of these materials cannot be duplicated by today’s technology. We offer a variety of reclaimed wood beams and posts from many of these centuries-old structures. With their rustic, yet refined appeal, these beams include saw marks from the original saw blade used to mill them or axe cuts from the craftsman who squared them by hand. We hand select every one of our beams for premium quality and aesthetic appeal so you can be confident using them as part of your project.
