Nehalem Animal Hospital, Nehalem, OR.
Most of the finish woodwork was done using recycled Fir woods from an old Army Barracks being demolished in Washington. Additionally, larger wood pieces used for oversized door headers and sideposts and counters were old glu-lams from the original Safeway store in Seaside, fashioned with chainsaw, saw-zall or circular cut (depending on cut angles and curvatures) before planing and sanding. Old woods like these are tighter grained and have aethetic value in their unique patterns. There's also the added pride in giving old wood new life instead of additional strain on new tree stock.

Reception counter Countertop is recycled glu-lam. Wood branch is newer driftwood. Wainscotting is recycled army barrack fir. Wainscotting pieces were routed on the backsides to hide metal L brackets holding counter to walls. Top countertop has already been wrapped prior to painting.

surgical suite Surgical suite overlooks the river. Half-wall and floor are matching recycled fir. Divider is original reclaimed fat-stud pine.
