GTM Architects – an award-winning residential and commercial architecture firm serving clients in the Washington DC area and nationwide – specified our WEATHERWORN reclaimed barn siding for this project.
wide plank flooring is a timeless and elegant flooring feature commonly found within late 19th century homes. due to the advanced age of trees during this time, thicker trunks provided ready access to wide planks. while almost all types of wood can be milled this way, the thinner, younger trees we see today do not lend as well to this type of flooring, making wide plank flooring less common.
reSAWN provides a wide plank option in almost all of our flooring designs. Most of our designs are available up to 8″ wide with some available up to 10″ wide – please contact us to inquire about a specific design. these wider cut boards reveal even more of the wood’s natural beauty as the uninterrupted grains and patterns flow seamlessly through the plank.

RECLAIMED BEAMS from reSAWN TIMBER co.
rough sawn and hand-hewn reclaimed oak and pine beams serve not only as unique feature pieces, but also come with a rich and varied history. this aged wood is ideal for the creation of rustic mantles, shelving, structural posts, and trusses.
reSAWN provides beautiful, reclaimed barn beams in the raw – including original hand-hewn pieces. hand-hewing is the process of transforming a tree trunk into a squared up beam. traditionally the broad-axe was used for scoring and for hewing larger pieces of lumber.
Reclaimed beams go thru the typical reclaimation process of denailed and power washing. no finish is needed for this wood since it has been naturally oxidized over the years to produce a tough, weather resistant “skin”. common character marks include circle sawn kerf, mineral staining, color changes, weathering, checking, nail holes, knots, notched out pockets and heavy patina. thicknesses tend to vary slightly.

Studies have shown that on average, Americans spend about 90% or more of their time indoors (source: the inside story: a guide to Indoor Air Quality. U.S. EPA). The design of these interior spaces has a major affect on human health. Wood in general and specifically reSAWN’s wood and finishes can contribute to improving indoor air quality. Often specified in environments where allergies to dust and particulates are a concern, wood is naturally hypo-allergenic and its smooth surface makes it easy to keep clean and free from particle build up unlike carpeting. Wood can also improve indoor air quality by naturally moderating humidity. Wood absorbs or releases moisture in order to maintain an equilibrium with the surrounding air. reSAWN’s materials are specifically made to contibute towards a healthier indoor environment. Our engineered materials consist of 9-layers of birch bonded together with non-toxic glues and contain no urea formaldehyde. Our hardwax oil finish is made from natural plant based products and is 100% VOC-free. The goals of sustainable design embrace not only environmental concerns but also the physical health and psychological well-being of the building’s occupants. Wood is a warm and comforting material that provides a direct connection with nature – a tenant of biophilic design.
This early nineteenth century barn was renovated with minimum change in structure or footprint. Originally a stone bank barn with stables and paddock facing south on the lower level and a large hayloft on the upper level, it has been transformed into a residence that celebrates the simple form, openness, and stone and wood finishes of the original structure.
All interior structural framing walls were left in place, while beams were selectively removed and reinforced to incorporate a new second floor that accommodates two bedrooms including a master bedroom, two bathrooms, study, dressing area, and closets … READ MORE.
