Phillip and Michelle Price share a mutual respect for Mother Nature, preservation and hard labor. The company is based on a 22-acre family farm in Dysartsville North Carolina. The Prices typically go after vintage, old growth lumber, including pine, oak and chestnut variations. Some of the buildings they deconstruct are over 100 years old and the wood that was used for construction came from virgin forests that were already several hundred years old.
Wood products stemming from these efforts possess a uniqueness of their own. The density, stability and natural beauty of wood in its original state, which is what make it so valuable and in high demand currently.
Antique Reclaimed Lumber does its share to make this community a better place with less waste and pollution.
“We are eco-friendly because we differ tons of demolition waste that’s usually shipped to landfills, and reuse it. A lot of the wood we collect is already cut and in plank form so when we recondition it, there’s a lot less fuel and electricity required. We are saving embodied energy already in the material.
Most of our wood was harvested locally (within the Appalachian region), and processed and sold locally."
Our mission is to develop a sustainable business model that can complete all steps in the recycling process. This includes harvesting material, processing on site, marketing, and installing to ensure the recycled materials are reused properly.
RBAC is a partnership between the NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the NC Department of Commerce. The purpose of the RBAC grant cycle is to reduce solid waste disposal and to encourage sustainable recovery of materials from North Carolina's waste stream.
