Reclaimed materials, on-hand when you need them.
Ninety percent of all timber frame projects are built with reclaimed lumber that we source and store on our property. This means materials are on-hand when you need them, resulting in a faster delivery of the final product. Our large inventory of Douglas Fir and other wood includes every size and length imaginable.
Big Timberworks reclaims wood from at least 20 different sources yearly, most dating back from 1910 – 1950 when wartime steel shortages drove an increase in wooden structures. In our yard, you’ll find reclaimed timbers from industrial buildings, reclaimed logs, old telephone poles, float logs, timbers sawn from standing dead trees (buckskins), snags, character logs, and hand-hewn barn timbers.
Regardless of the use, we strive to use the driest timber possible for every project, whether it’s reclaimed or not (occasionally we do use new wood that has been kiln dried). The dryer the wood, the higher the likelihood is of it maintaining its shape after construction. This means less shifting and shrinking over time for you.
