A lot of cool ceilings have been built out of Trestlewood antique lumber and/or beams. See Reclaimed Wood Ceiling Ideas
for photos of a sampling of such ceilings. We hope that these photos will give you some good ideas for your own unique wood ceiling project. (The ceiling shown in the above photo uses our Douglas Fir Picklewood Resawn Lumber
Trestlewood ceilings cover a wide range of characteristics on several different fronts: weathered barnwood to fresh sawn lumber; clean to distressed; quite consistent coloring to significant color variation; refined to rustic; douglas fir to pine to redwood to mixed species to. . .; etc.
Trestlewood ceilings can have a tongue-and-groove (T&G) or other profile, but they most commonly involve square-edged boards butted up against each other. We love what skilled construction people have done with our reclaimed and other unique wood products to make some stunning ceilings. You and your contractor can decide the most appropriate material and installation method for your project.
