Nothing transforms a space like authentic reclaimed barn wood beams. Box beams are also called hollow beams.
What are box beams?
Box beams (or 'faux beams') are hollow beams made from the skins of solid beams. These are most commonly seen as architectural elements for ceilings. To make a box beam we work from the inside dimensions outward since they are usually mounted to a board affixed to the ceiling. With that dimension, we then build out the final thickness to your specs. Box beams are handmade and like the timber they come from; no two are exactly alike. Box beams made for your project will coordinate with each other.
Our reclaimed box beams are built with antique reclaimed barn wood beams and push your design over the top. Box beams are a great way to hide existing structural supports or just to add to the room's aesthetic appeal. Box beams offer the look of solid beams with the benefits of custom sizing and lightweight installation.
We hand make box beams for your project in both rough sawn and hand hewn.
Box beams replicate the look of solid timber but have an improved workability and practicality: they’re uniform in size throughout the length of the beam, are available in any length and width combination, are lighter and easier to install than solid beams.
