Timber framing and barn siding? Yes! Jennifer’s bathroom, featured in an earlier post, has now found its way into print. Our Roblyn Powley is quoted extensively – well said Roblyn! The article below is published in the August 2013 issue of Timber Home Living magazine.
Anyone who’s lived through a remodeling project in their home knows that things often don’t go exactly as planned, or finish in the time originally anticipated.
Our client Jennifer came to see us back when the weather was still nice and I just recently had the opportunity to visit her home and take a look at her newly completed master bathroom remodel. The expanded space incorporates our Mixed Brown-Grey Barn Siding throughout.
The home itself is an 1800s barn on a rolling, wooded lot so the barn siding was a perfect fit for the aesthetic of the space, but Jennifer also wanted to incorporate a contemporary feel which she accomplished by including bright white cabinetry with clean lines and the crisp, modern fixtures and tiles.
As with many remodeling projects, there were snags and delays along the way- demolition that took longer than anticipated and design changes on the fly. Jennifer and her construction team also took their time with the details. The Barn Siding for the walls was planed on site to totally eliminate any variation in thickness and Jennifer hand applied a very subtle finish to soften the naturally dramatic color variation in the Mixed Brown-Grey planks. Additionally the vanity was custom designed and built to fit the room and a large new master closet was created using space from the garage.
Ultimately, the results are worth the extra time spent. The carefully considered details make for a stunning, spa-like space that Jennifer can enjoy everyday. Her patience paid off in a big way!
We can’t get enough of the pictures our clients share with us when their work is completed!
Recently we received some images from homeowners outside of Seattle, WA. The home, nestled in a wooded setting included existing rugged timbers and Ross worked with them to find a product that would complement the space and their comfortable style. Enter our Settlers’ Plank Mixed Hardwoods.
The varied colors and textures combine to create a floor that is durable, forgiving and not too fussy. It’s a perfect fit with a combination of vintage and modern accessories. Often we see this floor finished with a penetrating Tung Oil, but here the owner opted for a water-based polyurethane, keeping the color tones lighter and cooler- truer to the unfinished look of the material. It’s a great choice.
The flooring flows throughout the main living space of the home, unifying the various areas of the large open space and on into the office where it is again paired with cool paint tones, warm wood and bright white accents.
Our homeowners let us know that they “absolutely love how the floors turned out and get tons of compliments.”
Which is the best compliment that we can get!
We follow a “made-to-order” philosophy of production. When you place an order for any of our floors or other products, we will generally mill the material just for you, allowing you flexibility in your specifications. Do you need a specific width that is outside of our typical range? A different thickness or alternate milling profile? What about a custom finish? Your needs dictate the product that we create.
Because of this it’s rare that we have leftovers or material on hand and ready to ship.
Once in a while, through various unusual circumstances, we end up with something in our stock that is ready to go if you need something right away…
This reclaimed Settlers’ Plank Oak floor is truly a gem. The 3” wide planks were salvaged from Oak wine vats here in upstate NY. There is wonderful deep, dark staining from the wine running through many of the boards. There is also a very high percentage of quarter sawn material, with bold, stunning ray fleck running through the pieces. And it’s pre-finished with a rich, warm, three coat tung oil finish (an all botanical product that we buy from a great manufacturer in Vermont – more on that in a later post).
We have 125 sf available to ship right away. Give us a call to talk about the details…
