An Antique Twist to Modern Look

Do you love the look of reclaimed wood but prefer a modern style living or work area?  Central Hardwoods of Dallas, Texas achieved both in this sleek office space:

Central Hardwoods used Goodwin’s River-Recovered® and reclaimed wood paneling – antique longleaf to be specific – which resulted in this classy, antique twist on a modern look.  If you love it and gotta have it, give us a call!

 

The finish is how hard?

If You Guessed Bok Tower Gardens, You Were Correct!

Remember when we asked you to guess what our latest “gentle giant” was being transformed into? Hint: “her new home will be at a National Historic Landmark”.

If you guessed Bok Tower Gardens, you were correct!

Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales, Florida announced its expansion plans last year. Today, construction is in full force! Goodwin is proud to be providing headers, window sills, trim and siding for the new children’s interpretive center and outdoor demonstration kitchen. Our River-Recovered® Heart Cypress is the perfect complement to the rich culture and history of Bok Tower Gardens.

Goodwin is in the process of milling cypress for the project. Enjoy this video which offers a special inside look at the process:

And, check out these photos of the first run of siding as the transformation continues:

Evelyn & Arthur Store Features Heartpine Log Slices

Take a look at these magnificent River-Recovered® Heartpine log slices with live edges we sawed for Tallen Builders to create an exterior façade for the Evelyn & Arthur store at the Brownwood Village Center in the Villages. I think our Heartpine is a perfect complement for Evelyn & Arthur’s fine ladies apparel, don’t you?

Here is a nice view of logs in the log pond that could have been selected for this order.

Back to Dasburg!

University of Florida president, Dr. Kent Fuchs, and wife Linda graciously hosted an evening BBQ this past Wednesday, June 10th, in appreciation of all of the contractors and trades people who worked so diligently to complete the UF Dasburg president’s house. During the event, Dr. Fuchs thanked everyone for their hard work and effort. He also noted all of those companies that had made generous donations to the appointment of the Dasburg house. Goodwin was proud to be among the recognized businesses. Dr. Fuchs then announced that for the rest of the evening the Dasburg would be completely opened and that all were free to roam the house and admire their and other’s handiwork. What a great surprise!   We were able to capture some additional photos of the home and the flooring we provided. Enjoy!
