Say Hello To Scenic Ceilings!

Ryland Wagner’s Curly Heart Pine Ceiling 1

You’ve probably seen featured photos before of ceilings designed with Goodwin wood!  But have you seen a ceiling made up of our stunning River Recovered® Curly Heart Pine?

Take a look at this foyer ceiling appointed with Goodwin’s curly heart pine by our friend, Ryland Wagner, of Joyner Construction!  Ryland is restoring and remodeling his mid-century modern home in Gainesville, Florida.  This project required 60 whole square feet of our 3 ¼ curly heart pine.  An accent ceiling is an excellent way to draw the eye upwards and to dress an area with an outside-of-the-box approach.  Here are a few pictures of the ceiling in progress:

Ryland has lived in this house since 2002 and started the remodeling process back in December. The house was built in 1969 by the University of Florida Architecture. Dan Branch was the architect believed to have built the house. Decades ago, the architecture classes at the University of Florida would map out and design a house the first semester of class. In the following semester, the class would actually build the house! This eventually stopped when the City Building Department took greater control of inspections in the 1970’s. Ryland says his goals in the remodeling of his home were “to match the design intent of Dan Branch and his class”. The project is expected to be completed in June 2021, with more pictures of the finished product to come!

Our River Recovered® Curly Heart Pine is extremely rare!  In fact, it is SO rare it’s only found in just the outer boards of 400 – 500 logs that we mill.  The grain is curly and burled, with luminous vibrant colors and a variety of tones.  We mill this wood much slower than traditional antique heart pine to guarantee that the burled grain remains intact. Curly heart pine is the perfect wood to use as an accent, and its pattern often looks three-dimensional, holographic, and even topographic at times.  It is truly a unique, desirable type of wood!
