Salvaged Shanty

Dan Pauly has perfected a craft that has been in his family for generations. He reclaims wood from old (really old) structures such as barns or warehouses to create these one of a kind structures. According to Dan, “This wood reflects our natural heritage,and has a much richer and more attractive patina and grain than modern wood.” I agree with Dan, old materials have a quality that can not be recreated. The combination of using old materials and time tested techniques results in what could not be mass produced in a factory.

The image above is an interior shot of one of Dan's structures. It beautifully contrasts the rustic exterior. To see many more of Dan's creations check out The Rustic Way.
