The Story Behind the Siding

Last week the Blockhouse | Life marketing team traveled to a small wood mill in north Spokane to take a closer look at the building materials that encompass Blockhouse siding. We witnessed the processing of 200-year-old recycled wood beams, which were sawed down into smaller boards to be used for the outer walls of Blockhouses. The vision for the siding is a natural design that follows the rustic aesthetic of the Spokane community. The old-growth red fir beams were repurposed from the McClintock-Trunkey building, and were provided to the wood mill by local company DMC Properties. The utilization of repurposed wood is a great example of the model of sustainability that Blockhouse | Life follows. It was exciting to see an important piece of regional history be incorporated into an innovative new project.
