The Story of “Mushroom” Wood
These reclaimed boards were once used in mushroom beds. Made from Cypress and Hemlock, they held the compost in a high humidity environment in where mushrooms were grown. They get their gorgeous brown color from a steaming process used between each crop to kill bacteria.
When the Amish craftsmen get these boards, they power wash them and leave them untreated. You typically don’t need to stain this wood because the acid in the mushroom soil created a treatment, making this wood naturally tough. Each shelter is unique – each is handcrafted and has its own beautiful rippled, deep grain pattern. And since they’re made from reclaimed wood, you can feel good knowing our planet’s resources weren’t wasted.
