The beams are salvaged from century old demolition homes throughout the Midwest. (Chicago & St. Louis) These old growth beams are over 100 years old and have tons of character and even more history to them. The term "old growth" refers to the origins of the tree that the beam was produced from. These trees grew naturally for over 200 years, during a time beforemassive deforestation. Since they grew in a dense forest, they received less light and grew more slowly than newer lumber. This slower growth allowed for a tighter ring pattern and denser wood. An estimated 90% of these forests were cleared in the United States by early 20th century. Today, "old growth" is strictly available through architectural salvage since remaining trees are protected by the US Forest Service.
We love the unique characteristics that each beam exhibits. That is why we do not stain our beams, we lightly sand each beam to remove loose dirt and splinters while maintaining the weathered patina. Then we coat with a commercial grade, clear water based polyurethane. A durable finish that highlights the wood's natural color and one-of-a-kind character.
