Custom wood beams are a great way to add character and warmth to your porch space. Reclaimed barnwood beams or handcrafted cedar beams are both options that can be installed. A reclaimed barnwood beam will have natural distressed cracks, hand hewn finish, and mortise pockets from original construction. A handcrafted cedar beam will have the natural look of knots and rough sawn exterior finish.
