Mike Prejeant, Memorial-area construction manager with Jamestown Estate Homes, shows how we are installing reclaimed wood beams. In this one-story home in Memorial’s Hedwig Village, we added beams as a decorative element in the great room. Click here to view the video and to subscribe to our YouTube channel.
Our clients chose 100 year-old, solid wood beams that were originally used in a barn in Pennsylvania. These 900 pound beams were cut in a wood shop to fit in the room. After this, they were brought to the home for installation. The ceiling in the great room is 14′ high, so we used a mechanical lift to raise the beams into place. The beams were then anchored into the wall, where they are structurally supported.
At Jamestown Estate Homes, we love adding unique elements to the homes we build. Installing reclaimed wood beams and antique doors are just some of the items we can include when building a new home. We have also re-used old wood for paneling, and repurposed console tables for vanities. For more information about custom homes in Houston, visit us at JamestownEstateHomes.com.
