Brown Board

Brown board is the flip side, or interior, of gray barn board siding. It displays inherent character which only decades of time can produce. Traces of saw marks, rustic knots, minor nail holes, hairline cracks and possible insect scars and worm tracks – are imperfections which add charm and create a rustic masterpiece.

Depending on the species of wood, brown board can display a warm caramel/honey colour, to a deep mocha brown patina.  The colours can range from light to a deep brown. Brown boards can also feature a blend of colours, creating a unique multi-tonal look. Applications can include but are never limited to;  exterior siding, interior wall cladding, accent walls, ceilings, wainscoting, loft doors, etc..

Boards will vary in thickness from 3/4″ to over 1″ and generally range from 5 to 14 inches wide with lengths from 4 to 16 feet.

Enjoy for Another Hundred Years

Canadian Antique Lumber Company is committed to advocating the reuse of recycled barn wood materials. These materials are sourced from unwanted century old barns which have outlived their usefulness and are no longer suitable for contemporary use, or are on the verge of collapse.

With the help of our sister company S&J Barn Demolition we carefully disassemble these buildings, removing all salvageable boards and beams - the materials are then carefully inspected and visually denailed, trimmed and stored.

It’s more than lumber. It’s a story from our past.

Reusing antique lumber is an environmentally responsible way to minimize our individual carbon footprint. By recycling old barns less garbage wood ends up in our landfills - recycled lumber requires less processing and reduces the demand for new raw materials. Reclaimed wood is a sustainable product, it helps save our planet by conserving natural resources.

It pleases us to know, that the buildings of our early Canadian forefathers, will live for another hundred years, and be enjoyed in equally as many places
