The original beams were 300mm x 300mm in size. The Client requested they be brought back to 200mm x 200mm, and simply dressed with a very small bevelled edge. Underneath the main beams is a clever shadow line, created by a recessed plank made from the leftover materials after reduction in size at the Mill. This offers a cool, dark line of delineation between the floor covering and the first horizontal line of beams.
Pre-oiled at our Mill, sent to the Client’s joinery for pre-assembly works, and then fitted with natural timber lugs on site, the beams were given another coating of natural oil after installation.
This is a great example of Salvage’s ability to source interesting timbers with rich history for bespoke projects from all over Australia, Europe and elsewhere abroad.
