Reclaimed Wood

Shooting Star used reclaimed wood on their buildings in a reverse batten style. It gives the appearance of old farmhouse or barn buildings. They used red framing around the windows that brings out the theme.

Reclaimed wood is a pretty cool concept. The wood is old and weathered, so no additional treatment is needed. You can see the old nail and wear marks from other boards.

I did a little research and found a company, renuWood. They offer flooring, lumber, siding and timbers from reclaimed barns, factories, warehouses and trestles. Original character of the wood is maintained through preserving nail holes, saw marks, and wear marks which bare the history behind each board.
