Rich Duncan Construction used Barnwood Natural woods on walls and ceilings to add warmth and charm to the First Call Home Health building project.
“There is a lot of great material that we can use that uses a lot less energy and emits a lot less carbon,” Wadleigh said. “We like to design and build projects with what we have so that we are not taking down more trees and we are buying no plastic.”
Clients choose Barnwood Naturals partly because the wood is recycled and holds history, but also because the wood looks so much better than wood purchased now.
“The coloring is much different than new wood,” Wadleigh said. “Doug fir at the big box stores looks nothing like the old growth. There is a lot of character in this older wood.”
Barnwood Naturals warehouses a wide assortment of reclaimed woods, mostly from the Pacific Northwest.
