Reclaimed lumber

Longleaf Pine at 443 Greenwich St., NYC

reclaimed lumber from Greenwich St. NYCA large project on Greenwich St. is drawing to a close, with over 500,000 bf of grade A Longleaf Pine lumber reclaimed from the gutted warehouse which is being developed into one of the highest valued properties in Manhattan. The building, constructed in 1895, was home to the American Steel Wood Co. and a range of smaller companies, including the Novelty Toy Co., with claims to releasing the first ‘Teddy Bear’. In the late 20th c., 443 Greenwich serviced a long list of film companies, small manufacturers and artists that worked and lived out of an edgier Tribeca neighborhood.


Diverse Nature of Reclaimed Barn Wood

20140724-092429.jpgAs not all chickens, cattle or goats look the same on the farm- not all reclaimed barn Oak ages to the same color and texture. Shades of grey and brown, circular or straight sawn, nail holes, stress cracks and knots – not to mention finishes – can all determine a wide range of surfaces. And since these qualities are only manufactured by time and nature, it’s hard to match a design vision right off the shelf. But often, the woods chosen can realize something different, and equally beloved.
