Potting Room of Reclaimed Wood

The beams were taken from a hand hewned log cabin on the customers proprety. We had them sawn by a local sawmill on three sides and beveled the edges for re-assembly so they were hollow and much lighter. We were able to install them as "U" shapes on pre installed blocking.
Reclaimed siding from one of their barns was used in the cabinet and walls.
The hutch is a combination of scrub planed and weathered chestnut from their barn. The biggest challenge was to protect the original patina of the siding during construction. Note the hand turned "bun" feet.
The casing is resawn ceder from trees cut on the property. Our new resaw came in handy for this.
