Incorporating the Beauty and Sustainability of Reclaimed Wood into Your Story

Monday, February 1st, 2021 | Uncategorized | No Comments

Dedicated to the preservation of our remaining old growth forests, Plantation Reclaimed reclaims the unique species of wood discovered in centuries-old tobacco barns, old abandoned barns, and warehouses that might otherwise deteriorate to an un-useful state. In this issue of East Tennessee’s Mountain Views, we are excited to feature Plantation Reclaimed founders and owners, and daughter and father team, Jenny and Jim Blalock. You’ll learn how this antique wood can be incorporated into both new and existing homes in a variety of applications, including flooring, siding, mantels, and beams, just to name a few. The sheer beauty and rich patina from these reclaimed pieces of history simply cannot be replicated.

MV: Describe how you successfully create an authentic sense of style using reclaimed antique wood in homes and offices that is difficult to achieve using modern building materials.

Jenny: Reclaimed antique wood is unrivaled in terms of its ageless beauty and charm and is unparalleled in its architectural quality and character. Using authentic reclaimed wood in your home or office adds great character that you cannot duplicate using newly sawn wood alternatives. By incorporating reclaimed wood into your home or office, you are restoring a part of history. As we like to say, “Reclaiming history one floor at a time.”

MV: You also describe salvaging antique lumber as environmentally responsible. Why?

Jenny: We are dedicated to the preservation of our old growth forests, protecting them as a legacy to future generations.  Our unique, antique wood comes from tobacco and abandoned barns and warehouses and other structures as much as 200 years old! Not only is it environmentally responsible to recycle antique lumber, but the character and unique patina of each piece of reclaimed wood, which occurs naturally over decades and centuries, just can’t be replicated. Using reclaimed wood in your home or office offers you that one-of-a-kind look that cannot be duplicated.

MV: Describe some of the creative uses for reclaimed wood at home or at the office.

Jenny: With the wide variety of hardwoods we mill that are available to be used for flooring and siding, we have the perfect opportunity to really get creative. By combining our talents with our clients’ desires, we create our one-of-a-kind masterpieces. We can customize any flooring or siding to have rounded edge beveling to provide more of a plank look. We can even custom mill any species of un-reclaimed wood. We take pride in being a custom mill shop dedicated to creating the finished look you want. We are also very proud of our custom designed barn doors, shutters, tables, and countertops, which offer you that extraordinary, one-of-a-kind look you’ve been searching for.

MV: Describe your customer care experience.

Jenny: Plantation Reclaimed is dedicated to providing you with the very best customer care experience possible. We want each of our clients to love their finished products as much as we do. You can depend on us to provide you with quality products that add value to your home or office. We stand behind it. That’s our commitment from my family to yours.

MV: You have a spectacular gallery that can be found at www.plantationreclaimed.com, which can serve as inspiration for home or business owners open to the idea of using reclaimed antique lumber in a future building or remodeling project. For our readers who might wish to learn more about Plantation Reclaimed, what is the best way to reach you?

Jenny: Thank you for recommending our website as a resource for our clients. We are very proud of the reclaimed wood products produced by Plantation Reclaimed and enjoy sharing our clients’ photos in our online gallery. They really have served as an inspiration for new clients. For your readers wishing to contact me, the best way to reach me is either by email at jenny@plantationreclaimed.com or by phone at 865-243-4604. I’ve discovered that most people prefer to email.

MV: In closing, is there anything you would like to add?

Jenny: First, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our many customers for both their support and encouragement since first launching Plantation Reclaimed. I would also like to thank my dad, who works so hard alongside me every day. I’ve had the honor of working with him for 20 years now. Many people have told me throughout the years that they could never work with their parents, but despite the inevitable ups and downs of self-employment, these challenges have actually strengthened our relationship. We absolutely love what we do and feel blessed to be able to serve our customers each and every day.
