We met our friend Jason Owen of Trimark Properties when we worked with them on the NIMBUS building feature wall earlier in the year. Jason recently installed a River-Recovered® Heart Cypress Character ceiling on the porch of a client’s Gainesville, Florida home. It was pre-finished with a two pass UV oil. Check out these initial photos we’ve just received:
This gorgeous River-Recovered Heart Cypress Character was sourced from bald cypress forests logged 100-200 years ago. Bald cypress (taxodium distichum) can grow to be 2000 years old.
River-Recovered Heart Cypress Character is becoming more and more popular for its unique features, which include:
- Rot resistant, making it ideal for outdoor applications
- 95-100% heart, 100% dense growth
- Blend of arching and vertical grain with some machine defects, face checks, cracks, peck and bug holes to add “character”
- Knots of any size
- Warm honey to cinnamon tan to light chocolate color tones
- Swirling grain and feathery patterns
