What: Mining Themed Resort Home
The 1800’s gold rush is responsible for laying the foundation to much of the cities, infrastructure, and shipping hubs of the Western United States. Gold prospecting drove Western Expansion and the wealth that it generated trickled down through many aspects of life and supported the creation of many industries. Few people were successful in the hunt for gold, yet many found prosperity in adjacent industries such as forestry to support the booming development. This week’s featured build pays tribute to a part of American history with a unique mining themed resort home in Washington state.
The designers of this project appropriately chose Montana Timber Products as their supplier of rustic wood siding and timbers. Montana Timber Products carries multiple product lines of reclaimed barn wood and reclaimed barn wood alternatives to provide you with the appropriate degree of rustic appeal and material choice.
As exhibited by the photos, there is a very heavy focus on structural Douglas Fir timbers throughout this project to emulate the roll that structural timbers played in the creation of mine shaft infrastructure, rail cars, and all other modes of transport involved in mining. The siding throughout the project features a mix of Montana Timber Products ranchwood™ and AquaFir™ product lines. The dark brown (Eastern) vertical 1×8 and 1×10 Shiplap siding featured in the first photo above is part of the ranchwood™ product line; Montana Timber Products’ flagship product.
The photo above illustrates the dedication the homeowners and designers had to creating an authentic mining tribute home by creating a mock mine entrance way emerging from the basement of the home. The Wire Brushed, horizontal, Custom Gray, Channel Rustic siding and the vertical, Custom Beige, Shiplap siding are part of the AquaFir™ product line; a slightly more mono-chromatic offering relative to the ranchwood™ product line.
Whether you are looking for siding, beams, flooring, or interior accents, Montana Timber Products offers a solution for your rustic needs. All Montana Timber Products’ prefinished wood siding utilizes Seal-Once, a 100% NO VOC waterproofer with a 10 year limited warranty against water ingress.
