I have become friends with a contractor who is remodeling a house down the block. The owner is totally gutting the place. Unfortunately I didn’t hook up with them until they were half way done so didn’t get to salvage everything.
But we did salvage some good beams. They came out black but after some heavy rains they look nice and clean. They are a real 3″x8″ by 20′ and in great condition. There is enough for a floor measuring 20′ by 20′.
