Oak, Tables, Heart Pine, & Mantles!

Hello Readers! 

Do you remember a few weeks ago I talked about some beams that we got from a barn that was in a fire in Manheim, PA? Well, those beams are currently being turned into flooring for order #9647! They have been sawn and dried, and are now being edged and finished! This floor definitely comes with a story.

Do you live in or near Lititz? If so, you have to go check out Zig's Bakery when they come their new location in Lititz! While you are enjoying their wonderful food (there rolls are my favorite!), you can sit at a beautiful table! This is the first of many tables that are being made for their new location. We can not wait for it to open!

This tabletop is done being built. It just needs finished.
This week we have also been working on cleaning and sawing beams for order #9668 for Heart Pine Flooring. These beams were removed from a building that was built at the turn-of-the-century up in Massachusetts. It looks gorgeous!


Jordan is cleaning the beams. In other words, getting all the metal out of the beams.

Sawing the beams

Gorgeous grain!

We sell a lot of other things other than floors. Our next best seller are beams. Beams as mantles have been really popular lately - we get calls about them all the time. So just in case you were wondering, yes we have beams and yes they look awesome as mantles. Case in point...

Clean these guys up a little and make them a great focal point in your home!
Beautiful and cozy!

We love when customers send us pictures of their finished projects! Tag us using the hashtag #sylvanbrandtcontest on Facebook or Instagram for your chance to win a $200 Visa!

Snowy Day Update

Hello Readers! It snowed a few inches here yesterday, and it has been snowing on and off all day today as well!

We have been busy working on orders lately. Not too much other exciting stuff going on. (Except our giveaway - which you can check out here!)

We recently finished the third of four 1,000 foot packs for order #9578. One more to go!

We finished the first 900 square feet of 2,200 square feet of Weatherboard for order #9603.

We also finished sawing Oak for order #9647 for 1,200 square feet of Rustic Oak. Our Rustic Oak is comparable to our Weatherboard in look, but is a much harder wood.

Today's featured antique are strap hinges! They are $2 per inch per pair and vary from 6" to 84" long.

We hope you all are having a fabulous January 22nd!
