All of Vintage Timberworks lumber is hand-selected seasoned, vintage, reclaimed, and recycled wood. Where do they find all of this wonderful building material? Well, quite often from antique barn beams, siding, and flooring, but there are many other sources as well. The woods they use include beautiful Douglas fir, cedar, larch, and redwood.Why vintage wood? Oh, for so many reasons! Some of these include its low moisture content, which enhances architectural stability - unlike younger wood, it is not subject to splitting or shrinkage and will therefore last a very long time. Another wonderful reason for using vintage wood is its beauty every beam is totally unique, and has a story to tell. Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, using recycled wood is easy on the environment. Theres plenty to go around without having to fell any more living trees.
