Reclaimed Barn Beams and Timbers

Whether renovating an older home, a business, or new construction, reclaimed barnwood opens up new design possibilities such as the use of hand hewn or sawn beams and timbers. We can provide repurposed antique hand hewn or sawn beams for fireplace mantels, inside decor, and timber framing in many different species. Reclaimed from old barns they are available in 6x6, 7x7, 8x8, 9x9 10x10 and various other sizes and lengths. Beams are generally $4.00 to $7.00 a board foot depending on quality and quantity.
A board foot is height times depth divided by 12 then times the length of the beam. Example a 8"x8"x14' beam is 8"x8"=64/12=5.33*14'=76.66 board feet.

 

Other than the sets on this page these are just general samples of different species and character. Call, email, or fill out a Product Request for a quote and pictures of what we have available to fit your project.

All our beams are washed, dry, and stored inside.

White and Red Oak Hand Hewn Beams
 The unique natural patina of reclaimed oak makes for a beautifully aged appearance. Old growth white oak was water tight and had a natural resistance to decay. Because of this it was the wood of choice for ground contact, fences, whiskey barrels, and boats.

Set of 4 White Oak Hand Hewn Beams
 We have this set of 4 hand hewn white oak beams with a touch of gray. Pictures don't really capture the true color but I would say they are grayer than shown here. The middle one is and elm that is no longer with these. Floating around 9" to 10" in width and from 18'3" to 19'4" long. The unique natural patina of reclaimed oak makes for a beautifully aged appearance. Old growth white oak was water tight and had a natural resistance to decay. Because of this it was the wood of choice for ground contact, fences, whiskey barrels, and boats. These have been treated for bugs but that treatment takes at least a year to penetrate all the way to the center but the bugs can generally not get out alive.
$3012 for the set.

Elm and Red Elm Hand Hewn Beams
We have both elm and red elm beams. Elm has a beautiful under rated grain with a stringy rough texture that generally has a coarse or rustic hewn appearance.

Beech Wood Hand Hewn Beams
Beech is very hard and heavy. When hewn into a beam you can see some of the darker heart wood contrasting the light blond sap wood. Generally wormy because of the sugar in the wood, we have treated this material. Great for decors with a lighter tone looking to add a little contrast with the slightly darker heart wood.

Big Old Warehouse Rough Sawn Douglas Fir Beams
We get a lot of requests for beams of this size and never have them. Generally we tell folks the only time you get this size is out of a factory or old warehouse. Well we finally had a chance to get a hold of some so we can stop sending customers away! We have 4 at 6"x12"x22' old warehouse rough sawn pine beams with no mortises. They have been hit by hi-los a lot which is why they had to go. A nice dark patina that many clients ask for. These are pretty structural and could hold some serious weight.
$6.00 to $10.00 a board foot depending on quantity.
