The reclaimed wood has been fastened in place in the textile mill since 1866 over 150 years having air dried and seasoned to a stable condition. When the building is deconstructed the posts, beams, joists, purl-ins and rafters usually maintain their straightness. If we do get a twisted timber we can saw it straight and square. Because the wood is seasoned, 99% of the re-swan pieces stay straight.
The look of aged and antiqued lumber and timbers has a warm and tasteful quality. From golden brown to light gray patinas, there's something soothing in the old wood.
Wood floors are more durable, and eco friendly, affordable and very easy to maintain. They are pleasing to the eye and the best part is that the floor offers the feel of having a piece of nature at home, adding a rustic charm in your home.
