New House Construction
(For best viewing from laptop, double click photo to expand.)
Building a new house, the flicker of an idea taking hold with dreams of creating a unique place that one can call their own. Incorporating the use of salvage material is time-honored, from liberating architectural details in drawing the plans, to wielding reclaimed historic architectural elements into the construction. The very idea might begin as simply as using a single item, a unique door, perhaps, that becomes an exclusive expression of the home-owner. Envisioning additional salvage pieces in the design of your home begins to take shape and evolves into an appreciation and recognition for these centuries-old materials, the quality of which cannot be denied. It is inevitable that a sense of pride for preservation also begins surface. As that pride swells, more pieces from our collection are incorporated and an organic, artistic masterpiece is created.
We take great pride in assisting you every step of the way to use salvage material in building the house of your dreams. We help you with material selection, from doors, windows, wall cladding, timbers, flooring, lighting, plumbing fixtures, etc. We also work with your contractor from planning to construction. We dot the “I”s and cross the “T”s when it comes to organizing your materials… notice the thumbnail photos with handwritten notes, door schedules with photos and measurements for the contractor, and materials boxed and labeled! We are detail oriented and mission driven. Bring your blueprints, let’s get preserving!
A special thank you to Chris and Stephanie for allowing us to be part of their lives during this project. We are truly grateful to have worked with you!!
