    Default Recycled Fir Beams

    Bought too much wood. I have recycled fir beams from Alberta elevators. Sizes from 8 x 8 inches -10 feet long, to 12 x 16 inches and 18 feet long. I am in Lethbridge, Alberta. Looking to move up to 10,000 board feet (half of what I have). Asking $2/board foot. Suitable for flooring, furniture, etc.

    I have bought European Steamed beech plywood from the Vegas yard of this company. Spent some time talking with the guy in shipping who happens to be the brother of the owner. He spends his summer in the pennyslvania area buying old barns and having them torn down and shipped to California. He states there is a huge market in the LA area for old barn boards and recycled lumber and they sell all they can get their hands on. might be worth a phone call. Sorry I didn't get his name. You are sitting on a lot of money if you can find the right market.I would give Peterman a call. It is a large company and Have driven by their yard in Fontana and kind of strange to see a huge mill in that part of the country. Anyone in lower Mainland interested I will be driving through lethbridge with a 25 ft flat bed trailer in July headed to Vancouver.
