Antique Beams Title

Our antique wood beams come from a selection of top quality sources.    We also offer professional design and installation services.  Antique wood beams are sold for their aesthetic appeal and are not intended to be used as structural elements in new construction or renovation projects.

Antique Hand Hewn Beams
Reclaimed timbers that were the structural supporting members of barns, factories, and warehouses. Barns of certain era were built from hand-hewn beams. These shaped by hand with all the characteristics that cannot be duplicated by current methods. Old time building methods employed mortise and pinion construction, which is visible in our reclaimed beams, along with carvings, old metal nails and peg holes.

Antique Sawn Beams
Sawn beams were used the same way with the same construction methods, the difference is that these beams were cut with a circular saw and are much more even in dimensions, they still have most of the same characteristics of hewn beams but are prized for their evenness. All the beams at Northern Dutchess Hardwoods are kept inside our warehouse which keeps the beams in the same condition as the day we received them.
