Old Wood, New Life
What could be more earth-friendly than reusing old building materials – and what could be more beautiful than old lumber? The patina of time and use gives the wood character and warmth that new lumber just doesn’t have. Here’s our almost-local source for old wood: Antique and Vintage Woods of America in Pine Plains sells not just lumber, but also reclaimed masonry and unexpected treasures. See if you can catch those old church pews before they get milled into flooring, or ask Dave how that 500- year old Chinese temple got here – it’s quite a story.
They carry reclaimed lumber in top quality condition, cleaned up and ready for reuse as flooring, millwork, posts or beams, and have a stock of interesting and hard-to find species like tobacco barn oak and chestnut. Antique and Vintage Woods of America, Pine Plains, NY 518.398.0049
