Heart Cypress Doors with a Custom Look
The homeowner and her designer came to our
showroom in south Louisiana with a reference book
photo of a stable gate leading to the courtyard of an old
cavalry quarters in the mountains of Mexico. They had
found the "flavor" of the look they wanted for the entry
of her new home. We crafted a design plan and our
custom shop made it a reality from reclaimed heart
cypress, heart cypress turnings, and modern glass.
We love custom projects,
let us know your dreams and ideas in wood!
Ask for virgin growth reclaimed heart cypress for durability, weather resistance, beauty and fine graining. Of course you can have it installed over a modern garage door and make it look like it was always there! Why not? Be creative! After milling heart cypress sinker logs, we air dry the wood for over a year before it is carefully, slowly kiln dried. This ancient wood will serve you well. Need proof? You can see
every day, in almost any Louisiana river town. Those beautiful, old houses were built by the craftsmen that first cut it out of the swamp. Old style siding, wall paneling, architectural moldings, fireplace mantels, doors, shutters, all still beautiful after a hundred years.
