We are so grateful that we are able to make a living doing what we love to do. Our chosen field of wood reclamation has spin-off benefits and we are further fuelled by this positivity. Let me explain using this supreme example:

We were thrilled to be given the green light to dismantle this gorgeous farmhouse:

We have been slowly picking away at it all summer, pulling out wall and floor boards that are perfectly dry and protected thanks to that intact metal roof. 

That is some old "wallpaper"

So who are the four winners in "win-win-win-win"? The landowners who donated to a nature restoration cause they believe in. Win! Nature gets its habitat back. Win! We are able to make a living in line with our environmental values. Win! Our clients' get meaningful pieces of art in line with their environmental/historical/aesthetic values. Win!

Here is an example of a large scale feature wall we designed, using wood salvaged from this house:

Thank you to everyone who cares about preserving nature. So many groups win!
