Hundreds of years in the forest... another 100 years as a barn. Now, preparing for another century of life. As I traveled through Bozeman, Montana on my way to Big Sky, I stopped to snap some images of these beautiful timbers being unloaded on a sunny afternoon. Their past life included being transformed from timber on the property to a turn-of-the-century barn in eastern Montana.
Now, we are hoping for an epic stretch of several more years when these timbers are installed as ceiling beams in a building project in the Yellowstone Club in Big Sky.
"These 35 foot solid Douglas fir beauties represent the holy grail of what we do. Our goal is to re-purpose wood materials, but also give integrity and longevity to the inherent strength in the wood, not to mention the original labor that squared them up." ~ Montana Reclaimed Lumber http://mtreclaimed.com
