Project: Union Stables | Seattle, Washington Union Stables was built in 1909 for the livery business of Benjamin & Maddocks and housed 300 horses who pulled street cars and fire engines, and hauled goods to and from Pike Place Market. In the fall of 2014 - 130,000 board feet of fir was removed from old ceilings and horse stall floors and delivered to Windfall Lumber. We re-milled the material to produce 10,000 sfq.ft. of flooring, bathroom vanities for five floors, countertops, desks and benches, which were installed in the renovated building. Architects and designers on the project included Weinstein A+U and Miller Hull. Below are a few photos of our work. Each year a portion of our projects re-use customer supplied material. Do you have a project with beams or trees from an old site which could be integrated into the new structure? Let us know!
