It’s our mission to extend the life of historic materials, so we leapt at the opportunity to acquire antique white pine from the Dreibelbis station bridge when it underwent a major renovation. Constructed in 1869, it’s one of the few remaining covered bridges in Berks County, Pennsylvania. Provenance’s team developed several ways to integrate the wood into the space. Beams and paneling infuse the entryway with texture and stellate forms add depth and interest to the living room. Timbers border the hallway, evoking the framing of a traditional antique home. 

The client also selected additional wood from our inventory to round out the interior. Reclaimed oak stair treads lend strong character to the home’s structure and a set of live edge walnut shelves complement the sea grass wallpaper. With many layers of rich wood, this modern home has evolved into an environment where history lingers.
