Door County Vacation Home - New House Construction

(For best viewing from laptop, double click on photo to expand.)

It started with a phone call from Illinois requesting to swing into Oshkosh and take a look at one of our salvaged fireplace mantels. While meeting, consulting about the mantel and sharing vision and philosophy for new construction, a new friendship was born. In this build, the vision and design was years in the making, and all belongs to the homeowners. We simply collaborated to bring the design together using salvaged, reclaimed material, and are grateful to have worked on such a visionary sustainable project with an amazing couple, Chris and Andy.

We provided...
- salvaged hemlock, reclaimed from the Thomas Edison Furniture Factory, New London, WI for ceilings and wall cladding

- milled salvaged Rock Elm barn beams into TnG flooring with a smooth top in random widths

- salvaged face-nailed, random width flooring reclaimed from the historic Buckstaff Manufacturing Building, Oshkosh, WI

- milled Hemlock from salvaged barn wood into smooth face, random width flooring

- salvaged antique barn roof decking for wall cladding

- and a few other miscellaneous salvaged decorative pieces

- additionally, remote and direct communication tutorials for installation of material

The photos include many aspects of our services: preservation of our history and heritage through reclamation and documentation of the demolished structures, direct communication with homeowner and contractors via email, text and phone to communicate measurements and details of material/s, assistance in coordinating and loading material for pick ups, coordinating and delivering of material to the job site and in progress photos of the build. ENJOY!
