A perfect match - flat-sawn fir completes this historic renovation

By KC

Craftsman Design and Renovation, an award-winning Portland design-and-build firm, recently completed this beautiful historic kitchen remodel.  One of the project's challenges was finding flat-sawn fir that would match the home's existing original wood trim.

Luckily, the design team at Craftsman called Sustainable Northwest Wood, and we were able to provide them with the authentic flat-sawn look they needed to perfectly match the existing trim (see photos below).

However, they didn't want just any anonymous commodity lumber for this project -- they specified super-selectively harvested, FSC Pure wood from a Girl Scout camp just 20 miles outside of the city. 

This FSC certified wood was cut through restorative forestry overseen by the folks at Trout Mountain Forestry.
