As Tidewater Timberframes specializes in custom beam work, we like to source out our products from “cradle to grave” or as we like to put it, “cradle to cradle”. It’s the reintroduction of a discarded or undervalued piece that we find as exciting to use as the actual shaping of the building itself. So, we have been incorporating salvaged products where ever possible or wished upon by the client.
Typically our wood is 100% salvaged and is relatively local, as to minimize traveling of a product that is available close by.
Local Material Applications
In regards to other custom finishing products, we like to use local rocks in our rockwork, driftwood for some of our smaller posts and salvaged cedar for a variety of applications.
