About our Showroom

We are very excited to celebrate the opening of our new Architectural Elements showroom on Highway 128 in Philo.  What makes our showroom so unique is that we used sustainable building practices, which are environmentally responsible and will be resource-efficient throughout the showroom’s life span.  The showroom was constructed with primarily reclaimed, salvaged and green materials, which are shown in the pictures below. 

 

Green and natural products were used in the construction of our showroom from the outset.  In the picture below, the concrete slab was poured using local materials and local workers were hired to perform the work.  In the middle picture, the basement of the showroom was constructed of Arxx blocks which were manufactured regionally by one of the leading suppliers of green, energy efficient insulating concrete forms. 

 

However, the true uniqueness of our showroom is highlighted in the third picture, which is halfway through the construction of the showroom and shows several exposed beams and vertical columns.  You can see a few of the many salvaged beams we recovered from various locations, including several old lumber mills.  Additionally, we were able to salvage the columns in that picture from an old shipyard that built Liberty Ships for the United States during World War Two.

 

We invite you to come view our showroom and see the quality and character of reclaimed lumber as well how functional a green building can be.  Call us at (707) 895-2986 or simply stop by for a private tour.
