Our latest project is in a Warren, RI factory, rich with history, where we are reclaiming 2 1/4" Heart Pine decking, 4"x10" Heart Pine joists, and 12"x12" Heart Pine beams, all unpainted, old growth Heart Pine.
This building, built in the first decade of the 1900's, helped the manufacturing industry flourish in the Rhode Island area, and we are working to help save a part of this important piece of New England history.
Looking at the amazing photograph Lewis Hine took one June morning in 1909 in Warren, RI (seen below)
makes us realize that the mills where we source much of our lumber are an important part of our recent history.
Hine's photographs are an amazing document.
They are a record of an era that is gone.
The lumber we save is a precious piece of those times.
