What: Upycycled shipping container homes with rustic reclaimed Corral Board siding.
Product: Corral Board Silver Patina Authentic Reclaimed Barn Wood
This week’s featured project takes us to Minnesota, one of the spectacular beauties of the Midwest. In recent years there has been a trend of upcycling used shipping containers as space efficient homes. The surplus of imports over exports utilizing shipping containers in the United States has caused a surplus in empty shipping containers. Surprisingly, the cost and environmental impact of shipping these empty shipping containers back over seas outweighs the production of new ones. Innovative people are upcycling these surplus, structurally sound shipping containers into alternative, sustainable, space efficient homes. The idea of upcycling is based on the principle of utilizing available non-virgin materials. The use of authentic reclaimed barn wood lives on the same principle of upcycling available materials before creating new ones. Montana Timber Products’ Corral Board authentic reclaimed barn wood is a great way to bring a piece of Western history to your home while lending a helping hand to Mother Nature.
The photo below is a great representation of the beauty of Silver Patina reclaimed Corral Board natural wood siding. Silver Patina Corral Board gets its beauty from Mother Nature and nothing more. Corral Board‘s exposure to decades of harsh elements creates strong wood that is free of stress and has an extremely low moisture content, making it a reliable, long lasting siding material.
Our product, Corral Board, is an authentic reclaimed wood product that encompasses the history of the West. Weathered from decades of prairie winds, sun, and precipitation, it is left with a silver patina finish, bands of moss, and authentic fastener holes. The random, mixed Band Sawn and Circle Sawn textures found in this wood is another testament to its rustic authenticity. Whether used for siding, trim, or paneling, Corral Board will bring an authentic beauty to your home. We offer this product in 1×4-1×12, 2×4-2×12, random length 4′-20′. The species is Douglas Fir and Pine.
