SUN BURNED - NATURALLY AGED
 
THESE EXCEPTIONAL RECLAIMED WOOD BOARDS HAVE COVERED BARN FLOORS AND UPPER FLOORS FOR DECADES, OFTEN ADORNED BY ORNATELY CUT DECORATIVE ORNAMENTS. DEPENDING ON THE RESPECTIVE DIRECTION, THESE BOARDS ARE PARTICULARLY AND IMPRESSIVELY WEATHER-RESISTANT. OVER TIME, THE SUN HAS TANNED THE SOUTH SIDES FROM A LIGHT BROWN TONE TO DEEP BLACK.

IN CONTRAST, ON THE WEST, EAST, AND NORTH SIDE WE FIND AN INTERPLAY OF DELICATELY SHINING SILVER-GREY, SOMETIMES A LITTLE DARKER, SOMETIMES A LITTLE LIGHTER DEPENDING ON THE YEAR OF CONSTRUCTION AND EXACT LOCATION.

THE OLDER THEY ARE, THE DEEPER OR BIGGER THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
THE EARLY AND LATE WOOD, THAT IS THE LIGHTER AND DARKER TREE RINGS IN THE BOARDS.
