Once home to massive, thousand-year-old bald cypress trees, Beaufort, South Carolina is known for its history and charm. People from around the country are choosing to re-locate to Beaufort, and once you see this gorgeous home, you will understand why.
Allan Howell of Howell Builders is the general contractor for a contemporary residence in the area. Goodwin milled 2500sf of 1×6 (5-1/4″) River-Recovered Heart Cypress for interior and exterior ceilings. The historic darker cypress which is synonymous with the area and contemporary white timber trusses perfectly complement each other.
“The River-Recovered Heart Cypress from Goodwin is the best cypress I have ever used,” says Allan Howell, president of Howell Builders. “It was unbelievable. There was hardly any waste. All the material was great. We saved the laundry room for last in case there was some cull; however, it was as good as the first day we started installing.”
