Reclaimed Fir and Pine Softwood Flooring From Old Granaries
In the mid-1800s, people headed west to settle vast land expanses that were rich in natural resources. Relying on their grit, these pioneers staked claims and cleared the massive old-growth trees from the land to make room for their homes, barns, farmland and grazing fields. Eventually, enough people moved in to build a town with markets where the farmers could sell their grain or send it off for shipment to a distant location.
In those days, the farmers loaded grain into bags they would cart into town and rely on hired hands to unload. This process was incredibly time-consuming and required a more efficient solution to keep up with demand. The grain elevator offered the answer by providing dry storage for bulk, loose grain. Grain elevators let the farmers skip bagging and cut down on the labor necessary to transport grain from the supplier to a train or barge for distribution.
The idea took off, and soon, grain elevators stood in cities and towns across the country. For over 100 years, these buildings stood tall against the horizon while their lumber aged, absorbing the weather and taking battle scars from years of wear. When economics changed, and the antique wooden grain elevators became obsolete, we preserved the boards used in their construction and prepared them as reclaimed fir and pine softwood flooring planks.
