These photos are of the shingles we produce. While you can barely see the ring count, they are very high and this is old growth cypress. This produces the finest wood shingle that money can buy!

Prices start @ $575.00 per sq. and drop significantly with volume.

 Commentary at bottom of page!

 

    Most companies selling old growth, reclaimed, antique lumber are basically selling you materials they have gone out and scrapped out from derelict buildings of some sort or other.  We do the same thing, however we also have actual antique lumber that has never seen a nail. Actual old growth cypress, at least 300 years old.

    True American Chestnut pre-blight, no worm holes. We have several thousand feet available. We are the only company in the world to have this lumber. We also carry Virgin Wormy Chestnut.   Our old lumber is not just beautiful. It has history and character. At the risk of sounding pretentious. "It has bragging rights"

 

RED OAK SINKER

One of the finest sinker retrieval crews in the country has found the holy grail of oak sinkers. These logs are coming out as I write this. We have not set a price as of yet, but will entertain offers. The age of this lumber has not been determined yet. I am reasonably sure from what I have seen that it is at least 300 years old and has been cut at least 100 years ago. We do have pictures available. They will be posted Monday or Tuesday.

"If it ain't Cypress, It ain't Southern"

 We  here at CS would like to welcome you to our site. We feel that if there is anything in the way of building materials that you need all you have to do is contact us. If you are going to build a log home or cabin you might want to contact us about your roof. 
Should you be funded by
Museum Restoration funds, federal grant, or the National Historic Society we can provide cypress logs, beams, cypress flooring, hand rived cypress shakes, or shingles to meet their specs. We also provide
exotic lumber for these projects. 

   We are the only company in Mississippi that has cypress tongue and groove paneling, hand rived  cypress shakes and or cypress shingles. These shakes are known to last for hundreds of years.  Shakes also enhance as well as lend a timeless beauty. Cypress shingles have the longevity and a more uniform look. Wood shingles have been around for hundreds of years. Wood shingles just don't go out of style. Having said that, cypress shake replacement under grant by Federal MONIES, National Historic Society, or Museum Restoration is required on any building that had them originally.

  CS has now expanded our operation to include exotic lumber as well as other hard to find lumber. We have  inventories of reclaimed American Chestnut  lumber, Wormy Chestnut lumber, European Chestnut, Antique Heart Pine, Old Growth Cypress Lumber,
 Cypress Sinkers, Walnut, Brazilian Cherry, Black Ash, and Hemlock. WE HAVE UNLIMITED ACCESS TO MOST EXOTIC LUMBER. Pricing on any
 of our products is obviously linked to quantity ordered. 

  We have Cypress Decking
