Antique Wood has its charm

Summer cannot be coming to a close already! Can it?
The summer of 2014 has felt like the faster summer in history.
I am not sure if its the colder than normal temperatures we have been getting in Ontario or all the days of rain, but the dog days of summer just haven’t materialized this year.
Its the middle of August already and everyone knows with the beginning of the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto you can start counting down the days until school starts.
Hopefully we have a few more warm days on the horizon because Shane and his crew still have quite a few barns to take down and there are a few logs cabins waiting to be repurposed.
The guys have been removing antique wood from barns in The Ottawa Valley area recently as well as near Barry’s Bay and Killaloe.
If these small towns are not familiar to you, google them and take a look, there are so very quaint small towns in Ontario that could take you on a day or weekend trip to explore their culture and local shops and no doubt a drive through some back country will take you past some beautiful turn of the century barns.
Enjoy the rest of the summer.

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
