We love wood and want our house to have some history to it. Accordingly, we’re looking for old wood that we can remill to use in the house.
Using reclaimed wood is good for the environment, it looks beautiful, and it gets us some LEED points. The only problems are that it is difficult to find and, when you do find it, the wood is expensive.
Bryan set off to visit a ranch near Livermore to see some 50+ year old lumber. He liked it but didn’t buy any.
Measuring the SIPs
We need to put lumber into the SIPs so we can attach the roof panels to the flat decking and attached the roof panels to the pony walls. The foam will need to be removed in the roof panels, just like the pony wall panels.
Bryan measured the actual dimensions so we can order the LVL and other 2x materials.
