These timbers have lived a previous life – as bridges, piers, wharfs and fence posts. Some have been worn by sun, storms, natural fires and insects. They bring a sense of place and time that is unmistakable, and notably absent from contemporary farmed wood.
Reclaimed timbers come from old-growth forest trees which were often used to build structures a century or more ago. These old growth timbers, offer durability that is not achievable with contemporary farmed wood. In addition, this timber has had the time to settle, expanding and contracting into a permanent shape.
