We’re Off to the Beach…

heartcypressWe love seeing old wood in beach homes. Mysterious 1,000-year-old heart cypress with rich tans and browns popped with UV Oil elegantly and gracefully bring the feel of the sand and ocean atmosphere into your beach home, office or retail establishment. So, as you can imagine, we are very excited to be presenting at SGA Architects in Pawley’s Island, South Carolina this Thursday, September 17th. SGA specifies a lot of cypress paneling in their beautiful coastal home designs.

Afterwards, Jeffrey Forbes, Goodwin’s Marketing Coordinator, and I have the privilege of presenting a CEU class at the Carolinas American Society of Interior Designers Annual Conference on Friday, September 18th. We will be discussing how to incorporate reclaimed wood into award-winning designs. Visuals include videos of river log recovery and historic images of ‘the big cut’ in the 1800’s when clearing the southern forests became one of the main drivers for rebuilding the US economy after the Civil War.

It is always a pleasure to provide building design professionals with resources they need to specify the wood they want and incorporate the installation and finish processes to ensure their clients’ satisfaction for the long term!
