back arrowHand Hewn Hardwood Beam

  • Imagine the laborious process of whittling a tree trunk into a square beam. Now imagine doing it with only an axe in hand. That’s exactly how craftsman completed the task before sawmills appeared in rural towns. Axe marks and notches that riddle the surface of these beams hint at the sweat and honest labor that went into the task.

    Provenance’s headquarters are a short trip away from rural Pennsylvania – one of the country’s most verdant agricultural regions. That means beams and joists from the finest antique rural structures are practically in our backyard. Farmers cleared away nearby groves of oak, maple and hickory, and then used the sturdy hardwoods to construct the outbuildings and barns that kept their livestock and hard-won harvests safe.

    Provenance treats its beams like a work of art, putting each one through a rigorous process before it reaches you. We whisk debris from the surface, remove hardware left over from the original structure, and then kiln dry them to eliminate insects lurking inside. We also offer a variety to suit your project.

    Reclaimed beams are 100% FSC-certified recycled and eligible for LEED Credits.
