Mining Shed Preserved
The project was completed using reclaimed materials like 300-year-old eastern heart pine floors and 100-year-old doors from Mexican haciendas. The recovered ceiling trusses in the kitchen still have their original bolts.
Make It Home:
When building under strict building codes, or by a preservation board’s regulations, enlist the help of a local builder who knows the area and its history.
Use reclaimed materials from the former structure, and from sites around the country, to help maintain the house’s history. Weathered siding for this home came from a Montana mine.
Strands of dead saplings can be used as stair balusters and railings to create a rustic, outdoor feeling.
