It all started a century or two ago. Trees were cut down manually – with axes. Then from the timbers the hefty beams and boards were cut. It was a similar process for all the buildings on the homestead: house, barns and sheds or outbuildings. Many of the buildings stood for a century or more. Today, with less farming and as these buildings continue to age some are disassembled piece by piece, so that as much as possible, the precious natural resource – the wood, can be reclaimed. After the structure is disassembled, the lumber undergoes a cleaning and drying process. All the lumber is run under a metal detector twice where the nails are marked and remove, then stacked for drying. It is then kiln-dried to 7% moisture and also to exterminate all the bugs and insects as the lumber moves closer to being useable for handcrafted reclaimed barnwood furniture.
