A working cattle farm on the New River, rich in flora and fauna…a marriage of modern amenities cloaked in old reclaimed wood…while inside fine art and fine craft engage in dialogue and soliloquy.
Breakfast Room with reclaimed Chestnut flooring and ceiling planking
A reclaimed wood wall is one of the best front porch ideas we’ve seen. Leaving the old weathered paint on the reclaimed siding is what makes it work. Reclaimed wood post and beams, locust decking, and two rocking chairs complete this inviting porch on the New River.
One of the focal points of this home on the New River built almost entirely from reclaimed wood is the reclaimed wood stairs leading to the loft. If you look carefully, you can see that the landing is crafted using a single reclaimed board cut into sections and hand-scribed to its mate.

The rectangular holes (mortises) visible in some of the beams in this Linville, NC mountain home tell a story: these particular weathered beams were reclaimed from an antique timber frame (the timbers were connected by pegged mortise and tenon joinery)–as opposed to a post and beam structure (bolted or nailed together).
