Description of Antique Beams
Naturally grayed by long exposure to the sun, reclaimed Antique Wood Box Beams retain the sleek look of newer wood texture while providing aged sophistication. Our authentic aged barnwood adds a touch of distinction whether you have a rustic lodge, country cottage or an elegant townhouse.
Salvaged from century old barns, each antique barnwood box beam is completely unique. Nail holes, knots, peg holes, cracks and other distress marks adorn each distinctive box beam adding to the wood’s historic character.
The use of reclaimed wood helps to conserve natural resources by re-using the old, durable planks in newer construction. Using these box beams is like adding a piece of history to your home. Every mark, hole, striation and groove tells a story that can’t be matched by new wood.
