It’s a bird, it’s a plane,
it’s a reclaimed wood ceiling!
Sturdy, rustic, natural, reclaimed wood ceilings give this
room a relaxed elegance. They add warmth and character devoid in many ordinary ceilings. The sheer strength of this wood lends
itself perfectly to any support beam. Reclaimed wood is so versatile in appearance that it lends itself perfectly to
so many styles from modern to traditional to classic.
Reclaimed wood is popular amongst homeowners looking to use eco-friendly
materials in their construction or remodeling projects. The boards often come from old barns or fences that would have once
simply been thrown in landfills. There’s still plenty of life left in the wood, and since it’s often from old-growth
trees, in many ways its preferable to the new tree-farm stuff.
Reclaimed wood can be put
to many uses in the home. Flooring is a popular one, but there are other places it can spruce up as house too. In the picture
below, the homeowner is adding interest to a ceiling with old wood boards.
boards are reclaimed from Wyoming snow fence:
“This product is radically
different from barn wood or wood reclaimed from other old structures, in that snow fence has never been treated with any chemicals
and has never had exposure to lead-based paints. Unlike other reclaimed wood that is treated, snow fence has no off-gassing
and no VOC’s, improving indoor air quality. Wyoming’s arid wind naturally dries the snow fence for decades to
produce intensely beautiful, perfectly dried reclaimed boards. This dimensional lumber is a mixture of douglas fir, ponderosa
pine, lodgepole pine, and spruce.”
