Reclaimed Timber Ranch House
Reusing Historic Materials for Timeless Charm
The client was inspired by the surroundings and western style ranch homes. They loved the idea of reusing old materials to make a new home look as though it had been there forever. The full timberframe with timberframe accents throughout uses historic reclaimed hardwood hand-hewn beams, the largest over 30ft long.
As no one beam was the same shape every piece has to be scribed individually to ensure a perfect fit. The structural engineer specified glulam beams for some sizes where we were unable to source old hardwood and we skillfully hand-hewed and colour matched the glulam to perfectly blend with the reclaimed timber.
This project was a proud showcase for the timber skills of our team and our sustainable values through the reclamation / recycling of the old wood.
