Green Building MaterialsBenedict Antique Lumber & Stone is a small company that builds custom Timber Frame homes. We can construct your new home from our inventory of antique hand hewn beams reclaimed from the 18th and 19th century that have endured the rugged climate of the Northern Tier of Pennsylvania. This incredibly strong lumber is used to remodel or build elegant new homes and offices which desire a historic feel. The recovered wood can also be used to repair existing structures from the period. Reclaimed beams serve as a solid foundation in new construction and recovered planks transform into stylish hardwood flooring. Pollutants and deforestation have lessened the strength of modern lumber, but reclaimed antique timber grew slower with tighter growth rings that have with stood generations of heavy farm machinery and catastrophic storms.

Methodically timber frames are dismantled, mortise notches, tennon integrity, and overall beam condition are inspected. Necessary adjustments are made replacing rejected beams in the frame or alterations, adding/removing bents and bays to adjust to size. Customizing every frame can be done from adding floors to adding dormers. Timber frame construction with Barn Beams installed in Cathedral Ceiling with skylights for a school.

How much work is involved? Dismantling and converting frames is very labor intensive and ultimately it reflects in the cost of all reclaimed materials. Benedict Antique Lumber and Stone uses its own equipment, mill, and manpower, which helps to keep pricing competitive.
