t L &L, we hand choose each piece of reclaimed wood. Each piece is selected for its structural integrity, patina, and practical use in your home. Because we know your project, we will choose reclaimed pieces that will best fit your needs and style. We select from several types of wood, including American chestnut, black walnut, black locust, white oak, hemlock, red oak, heart pine and Douglas fir. We source our wood from structures that are scheduled to be demolished such as barns, homes and warehouses. Our reclaimed wood primarily comes from the northeast states and is obtained from structures that are approximately 200 years old.
