Reclaimed wood and old wood beams have taken the world of fashionable home decor and design by storm, popping up in classic homes and rustic homes in cities and countryside alike. The look of old wood beams is almost unmatched by almost anything else engineered for home use. Repurposed wood and Reused wood have the benefit of low environmental impact. Nevertheless there are downsides that include unwanted pests, toxins (from previous use), physical risks (nails and screws left inside the wood) and often astronomical cost, exceeding $2,000 for a single beam, that often go with the territory. For new wood, deforestation attributing to scarcity of many wood types has led to strict guidelines that limit its use and coax up its price. Fortunately there is a light at the end of the tunnel, herein the Outwater’s Faux Beam.
