Project Description

From the historic Sunny Acres Orphanage built in 1931, The Lumber Baron was able to reclaim approximately 15,000 board feet of full 2″ Reclaimed 2x Doug Fir. With few to no knots, dense edge grain, and lots of figure on the faces, the material makes excellent table tops, shelving, and/or wall paneling.

The building’s Ancient Roman architectural style and brick make up, landed it off the San Luis Obispo Historical Resources list. Currently being restored, retrofitted, and expanded the new building will have 13 studio apartments designated by the county to provide living and wellness support for people with mental illness. Get your hands on this incredible material before it’s all gone.

Our Sunny Acres Reclaimed 2x Doug Fir is SOLD OUT!

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.
