About Green Building Materials
The lumber sold here at Old Fashion Lumber is all recycled and reclaimed material. This wood has been salvaged from pre-existing structures such as old barns, old buildings, and old fences. By choosing to build with these materials we are reusing material that has already been harvested buy our previous generations.

Green building appeals to people who are interested in living a healthy life-style and preserving the quality of life. Building green is about helping to preserve our planet. Homeowners and builders who choose to build green truly care about our environment and in doing so they make a statement about their personal values and the lifestyle’s they live.
Recycled wood is not only environmentally friendly but it also is material which is truly beautiful and has a rich aged character. The beauty lies in the natural aging process that this wood had gone through. On top the wood sits a beautiful aged sheen and a textured grain caused by exposure to time and elements. This is also known as the woods patina. Underneath lays its original integrity and a natural vibrant luster swirling throughout the grain. The wood also gets it character from notches, seasoning checks, nail hole’s, bolt holes, which all happen to the material as its stood throughout the test of time. Each of these characteristics gives each board or beam its own story to tell and it own piece of history. This reclaimed material has a quality unmatched by the new lumber of today. It’s high ring count and extreme density gives it high structural strength and durability. The woods natural seasoning process gives it a low moisture content which allows the wood the ability to stay straight, flat and true.
Why Choose Western Red Cedar?
Unparalleled characteristics and qualities:
Western Red Cedar is one of the top choice woods to work with among builders and home owners. Cedar is known for having the highest natural resistance to deterioration from the elements which makes it a top choice for exterior and interior applications. The lumber previously harvested from old growth forests is exceptional and because of its slow growth, dense fiber. The natural oily extractives are responsible for its decay resistance and its rich coloring. Colors can range from a light milky straw color in the sapwood to a vanilla-chocolate in the heartwood. Second growth is different. It is a stable wood that season’s easily and quickly, with a very low shrinkage factor. It is free of pitch and has excellent finishing qualities, this allows it to lay flat and stay true. Recycled Cedar is the ultimate green building material.
