Project Description

From the San Leandro Georgia Pacific paper mill in (you guessed it) San Leandro, CA we have acquired a large number of reclaimed Douglas fir old growth beams. Hand selected for growth ring density, milled, this lumber will make exquisite trim or flooring, door or window stock.  Left alone they will make incredible exposed beams. Available in 6×6, 6×12 and 4×8 sizes, lengths up to 22′. 

The building, located at 2000 Marina Way, is currently being redeveloped into high end industrial space.

Regarded for it’s strength and interior durability, Douglas Fir lumber has always been a preferred option for builders and architects for structural members. It has high resistance to earth quakes, wind and other natural occurrences. Old growth vertical grain fir makes exceptional flooring or cabinets and if often used in window casing and doors panels. Douglas fir is also a great choice for exposed beams due to it’s strength and beautiful color (usually yellow or light brown with hints of red). Douglas fir lumber is fairly easy to machine and takes stain, glue and paint well. It ranks about 50% higher then redwood on the hardness scale. However, aside from the name, our reclaimed old growth douglas fir, has little in common with the douglas fir of today. Superior in both look and strength with a dense ring count, reclaimed douglas fir is a beautiful, versatile building product
