A Unique Flavor for a New Era of A&D

There is a cool look for a new era of architecture; it is seamless, sleek, and functional yet it reflects a warm spirit that possesses an inviting ethos that is genuine and authentically pleasing.
Such is the case with a new residential build currently underway in the Gig Harbor area of Washington State.  The site embodies the very essence of the Pacific Northwest yet with trend setting design applications and details exceptional to this region.
One of the features of exterior elevation was achieved by utilizing the Windswept Weathered Wood series.  This unique product adds style, sophistication and practicality to what designers have long called for- a reclaimed appearance with the stability and structural integrity of new wood, backed by regulated industry associations, at nearly half the investment of reclaimed materials and with minimal waste.
The Windswept Weathered Wood series utilizes a resilient low VOC finish that replicate reclaimed or barn wood materials for both interior and exterior applications. This parlays into an effortless presentation process that will enhance any scope project with product performance and cost effectiveness.
The aged wood appearance, colors and textures have become a hit with the A&D community as it provides the look and feel of authentic sustainable woods with the security and engineering advantages of new wood.

Introducing TIMELINE Wood Series

Learn about our FSC Certified products

Harvest Timber Specialty Products proudly introduces a new line of Eco-friendly, FSC certified wood prefinished for inferior paneling and flooring.  It is a perfect fit alongside our Windswept Weathered Wood series.
For architects, designers and homeowners who love the color depth and texture of reclaimed wood but want to avoid all its problems, Time Line offers the best of both worlds -- the beauty of well-worn planks combined with the strength, durability and convenience of fresh lumber.
Through a specially developed color process, Timeline creates and fabricates interior and exterior wood surfaces for walls, ceilings, floors and architectural building materials that are a new, sustainable design alternative to reclaimed and conventional on-site wood finishing.
Using water-based and low-VOC materials, as well as sourcing sustainable wood from Forest Stewardship Council- certified (FSC) mills in the U.S., Timeline wood products meet LEED certifications for environmentally preferable paints and coatings. Solid, ready to install and durable through cleanings, Timeline products are available to order in unlimited supply. In addition, Timeline╩╝s curated Color Series allows for consistency in large projects.
After extensive experimentation, years of fine art painting, and materials and color testing, Timeline launches its Color Series. Through a specially
developed color process, Timeline creates board in varying
tones and textures that enhance the natural grain and knots of the raw wood. The Timeline Color Series offers a choice of 11 custom hues and comes in multiple plank widths and three edge choices for exceptional flexibility.
Timeline reflects the sensibilities of its co-founders Matt Stroud and Shelby Keyser who previously worked in high- end furniture restoration and fashion, respectively.
“We draw our inspiration for the colors and finishes of Timeline from old wood that we love as well as from Bauhaus color theorists, such as Josef Albers and Johannes Itten, contemporary artists like Charles Ray and photographer Ryan McGinley, and minimalists Donald Judd and Ellsworth Kelly,” said Keyser. “Our goal is to use wood as a canvas to create warm, beautiful surface materials for environments that range from rustic to ultra modern.”
