What is a Wooden Box Beam?
Our box beams are hardwood beams built from three pieces of lumber. They’re hollow on the inside and open on each end. We use box beams to cover girders and add beauty to ceilings. Box beams instantly change the look of a room—or an entire home— while offering a practical solution. We can even use a wooden box beam to cover exposed wiring and cable from surround sound systems and security systems, allowing your guests to see unique architectural details instead of unattractive wires.
What Do We Use to Build a Wooden Box Beam?
We frequently use reclaimed wood to construct box beams. Many of our clients choosing box beams have Tudor style homes or restored farmhouses. A reclaimed wooden box beam is the perfect authentic touch for a rustic home. Oak, chestnut and pine are the most readily available reclaimed woods.
We also use new hardwoods to build a wooden box beam for clients with new log cabin homes or modern farmhouse kitchens. If you want your new home to evoke an old-fashioned feeling, box beams built from newly harvested timber are perfect. A wooden box beam will age naturally and become more attractive with time. In a new 19th century home, the beams would have been light brown or pale yellow in color. Think about hardwoods like pine and maple for your box beams.
