Project Description

When the Richardson Bay Redwood Bridge opened in 1931, at the time, it was the largest structure ever constructed of redwood. Built from over 2.5 million board feet of redwood, the Richardson Bridge made the important transportation connection from San Rafael to Sausalito. The Lumber Baron is able to offer limited amounts of 3×5 t&g (tongue and groove) Richardson Bridge Reclaimed Redwood that served as the bridges decking. Free of knots, the old growth redwood material would make incredible gates or could double as an impressive exposed ceiling and floor. The Richardson Bridge Reclaimed Redwood would also make incredible one of a kind doors.


Our Lumber is Sustainable and Green:

Wood is the only major building material that is renewable. Lumber producers have been replacing harvested trees so diligently over the last few decades that North American forests have actually grown by 20% since 1970.

Wood is resistant, and in the right conditions, last for a very long time. Several wooden structures through out the world have lasted over a thousand years. In fact, a major part of our business is selling incredible lumber from deconstructed buildings. The ultimate in reducing the consumption of materials, our reclaimed lumber is exquisite and rich in history. Check out our other reclaimed lumber options.

Research proves that “greenness” has a measurable impact on occupants. And not just in residential applications. Used in retail and hospitality, it enhances customer experiences. In healthcare it contributes to faster healing. In workspaces it promotes productivity and boosts morale. As urbanization continues, factoring these benefits into modern design is crucial. Reap the many benefits of wood by incorporating it in your next project.
