It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a reclaimed wood ceiling!

Sturdy, rustic, natural, reclaimed wood ceilings give this room a relaxed elegance. They add warmth and character devoid in many ordinary ceilings. The sheer strength of this wood lends itself perfectly to any support beam. Reclaimed wood is so versatile  in appearance that it lends itself perfectly to so many styles from modern to traditional to classic.


Reclaimed wood is popular amongst homeowners looking to use eco-friendly materials in their construction or remodeling projects. The boards often come from old barns or fences that would have once simply been thrown in landfills. There’s still plenty of life left in the wood, and since it’s often from old-growth trees, in many ways its preferable to the new tree-farm stuff.

Reclaimed wood can be put to many uses in the home. Flooring is a popular one, but there are other places it can spruce up as house too. In the picture below, the homeowner is adding interest to a ceiling with old wood boards.

The boards are reclaimed from Wyoming snow fence:

“This product is radically different from barn wood or wood reclaimed from other old structures, in that snow fence has never been treated with any chemicals and has never had exposure to lead-based paints. Unlike other reclaimed wood that is treated, snow fence has no off-gassing and no VOC’s, improving indoor air quality. Wyoming’s arid wind naturally dries the snow fence for decades to produce intensely beautiful, perfectly dried reclaimed boards. This dimensional lumber is a mixture of douglas fir, ponderosa pine, lodgepole pine, and spruce.”
