Our Hand-Hewn beams are mixed species and can include Oak, Hemlock, Maple, Fir, Pine, and many other species. They will also vary in color due to their exposure to the elements over the past 100+years. This is the beauty of these beams and is what makes every piece a “one of a kind”. There is a story within each one of our hand-hewn beams. The axe marks, mortise & tenon joints, and square head nails that can be found in our beams are all reminders of how their story began. Occasionally we will come across a beam that has “Carpenter Marks” which are usually Roman Numerals that have been hand carved into a beam. These etchings were used as marriage marks in their joinery and are always an exciting discovery. They are truly a testament to the time and craftsmanship it took to create these timbers. Our Hand-Hewn beams are highly sought after for commercial and residential applications by Designers, Builders, Remodeler’s, Architects, and Homeowner’s.
