the Possibilities are Endless!
f there is one sure way to spruce up a room and give it character, it would be with reclaimed wood. Reclaimed wood is used from vintage barns and structures from all over the country – some dating back to the pre-1900’s era. Custom flooring, paneling, hand hewn beams, furniture, and barn planks can be created with this wood to not only bring a piece of history and a story to your home, but possibly a species of wood that may no longer exist in present day America. Reclaimed wood is offered in a wide variety of grains, colors and textures, each unique and individual, and can be custom made through a wide range of milling services – custom slabs, straight lining, moulding, gauging and ripping to size. Because this is a “green” product, it is recycled, already established lumber so it does not contribute to the depletion of current natural resources. For the DIY individuals, a product called RECwood reclaimed barn planks is a wood panel kit that can be installed yourself. Not only can these panels transform a wall, piece of furniture and much more, it is 100% made in the USA. For more information on how to add history and beauty to your home with reclaimed wood, you can contact True American Grain at 949-272-0292 or visit their showroom and mill shop at 27324 Camino Capistrano, suite 159-160 in Laguna Niguel (1.8 miles north of Avery Pkwy in the Crown Valley Business Park).
