Project Description

The Almaden Reservoir, one Santa Clara county’s six original reservoirs, was built in 1935.  Still in use, we have limited amounts of 2×12 and 2×10 Reclaimed Reservoir Redwood Lumber from its seismic project in 2017. The redwood served as the rafters holding up the structures metal roofing. A full 2” thick, this Reclaimed Reservoir Redwood Lumber is perfect for furniture or can be resawn in half to make thick, substantial siding, or paneling.

Our Lumber is Sustainable and Green:
Wood is the only major building material that is renewable. As trees are harvested, new ones are planted and as the trees grow they take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. 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 numerous 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.
