I came across The Uncommon Good totally by accident. I was procrastinating on Facebook and a friend posted about a piece she'd recently purchased. I followed the link and fell in love with their story. They go into character homes that are being gutted or torn down to make room for new construction, and reclaim and reuse the wood for beautiful decorative pieces and furniture. Much of the wood they salvage is first growth Douglas Fir, Cedar, and Hemlock from trees that would have been 300 - 1,000+ years old when they were cut down for these homes in the early 1900s.
I couldn't help but buy a piece of Vancouver history, in the shape of beautiful British Columbia, for my wall. I love how the light catches the grain of the wood and I love that I get to feel like a fancy grownup who does stuff like buy art.
