The Story Behind Our Rescued Wood Mantels
The 19th century was a time of tremendous change and growth in the US, particularly during the peak of the Industrial Revolution. During this moment in history, wooden homes, barns, factories and warehouses were incredibly popular due to the high abundance of wood, an affordable and hardy material with high resistance to the elements. Fortunately for us, wood is durable enough to maintain its strength even after hundreds of years, which is why quality reclaimed lumber is one of the most highly sought commodities on the market today. When taken from old structures, rescued wood pairs an incredibly unique look with an abundance of rich history. Combine these appealing features with its rarity, and it’s no surprise why modern homeowners across the nation are eager to add these compelling fragments of the past to their spaces, foregoing bland and boring composite options in favor of wood flooring, panels and mantels that reflect nature’s beauty in all its splendor.
At Manomin Resawn Timbers, our lumber comes from the timbers reclaimed from salvaged barns, factories and warehouses, once-magnificent structures containing decades of history and experiences that spanned across many generations. Whether it came from the remains of a warehouse built during the Industrial Revolution or the wreckage of a small barn that sheltered and supported six generations of an American farming family, every single mantel we rescue has a fascinating story to tell. And by implementing one of these incredible pieces into your project, you have an opportunity to preserve this precious glimmer of history, contributing to the wealth of human experiences and memories it represents with a few of your own. Put simply, if you’re ready to set your space apart from all others with a breathtaking fireplace mantel that warms and inspires you, then you’ve come to the right place.
