Project Spotlight: Reclaimed Beams

While we do a ton of work for local businesses, we also love working with interior designers, builders and homeowners to help people incorporate vintage lumber into their homes. Whether it be kitchen shelves, a farmhouse-style dining room table or flooring, there are lots of ways to incorporate reclaimed wood into a home. The right touch of antique wood can instantly add warmth, character and history to a room. 

In this week's blog post, we take a peek at a beautiful Nashville house that we did a lot of work for recently. We supplied beams (both solid and box) and reclaimed wood ceilings in multiple rooms. Although the house is still under construction, it's coming together really beautifully and we are proud to be a part of the process. 

Let's first take a look at the kitchen, where you'll see a reclaimed cherry beam over the oven. Solid cherry beams are hard to find, but this overhang really adds a rustic element to the space.


If you take a step back, you'll spot box beams of ours installed on the ceiling. Exposed beams really create an openness & texture that highlight the space and physicality of a room. Box beams, like the ones below, are hollow and great for when weight is a factor.  


Just around the corner is another room, with high ceilings and tons of natural light. We built the oak box beams and corbels in this room as well. 

The majority of the beams we built for the house were circle-sawn and made with reclaimed oak. Below are a few more rooms that we supplied box beams for. Have questions about jobs like this? Learn more about our beams here.

Lastly, below is a look at the home's beautiful sun room, which will look out on the family's backyard. The beams in this room are hand-hewn and solid oak, while the ceiling is circle-sawn reclaimed beech. We love the way it turned out. 

Here's a closer look at the ceiling. 

A lot goes into making the final products look as they appear in the photos above. Below are snapshots taken over the past few months as we've been working, so that you can get a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into the building process.
