Our selection of barn beams includes pine, oak, and other species frequently available in our large inventory. These beams are perfect for ceiling and wall accents as well as for fireplace mantels.
Our hand-hewn beams are the most popular, but we also offer circular saw finished beams. For construction projects in which structural issues are a concern, we offer box beams from 1" hand-crafted skins.

Reclaimed wood is any wood material that has been salvaged from a previously existing structure and re-purposed for use in another form or venue. For example, large heavy barn beams may be cut into log skins for exterior paneling or formed as fireplace mantels.
