For the last twenty years Mike Yankin has consistently been able to source sustainable woods and materials that really took Faulkner Architects’ projects to another level. The unique thing about Yankin is his craftsmanship; he knows what to do with the wood. Materials are sawn, shaped and prepared to go directly into the work.

 

Beautiful floors and great service! Mike was wonderful to work with - very informative and patient with my frequent phone calls and questions. We love the floor - it is the frosting on the cake in our home. Three months later we called back Yankin’s Reclaimed Materials to order materials for a rustic outdoor kitchen we wanted to build. Yankin’s Reclaimed Materials is a unique source for high quality wood products derived from reclaimed sources giving any project that instant old look to fit seamlessly within your existing setting. Mike again you have exceeded my expectations! Thank you!

About Us

Yankin Reclaimed Materials is a family-run building material business founded by Mike Yankin of Truckee, California. We specialize in supplying ‘green’ lumber for building homes, furniture, and commercial projects of lasting quality and environmental responsibility. All of our lumber products are sourced from recycled, reclaimed, or salvaged material; we do not harvest or use any living trees. Mike is a hands-on owner-operator who personally oversees the production and ensures the quality of every order.

YRM has acquired a massive supply of salvaged redwood logs that were harvested from the old-growth forests in Northern California in the early 1900’s. Much of this material has been in the forgotten inventory of the Pacific Lumber Company and surrounding mill sites or reclaimed from their logging industry infrastructure roads, bridges, and lumber mills. This ecologically sound premium redwood is virtually clear heart dry one-of-a-kind material.

YRM also has a huge inventory of reclaimed redwood lumber that were used in the construction of several old buildings in the Pacific Northwest. Most of our large-scale inventory comes from the carefully deconstructed lumber mills that were built around 100 years ago with beautiful old-growth redwood.

The Lumber Yard

YRM operates on 94 acres in just outside Truckee in Northern California where we store and process this material. Our facility has the capacity to handle logs or timbers of over 40’ in length and 6’ in diameter and we have such specimens in our inventory. These beautiful salvaged redwood logs can be custom sawed into the building materials of your specifications; everything from 36”x48”x30’ redwood timbers, to 1”x siding or wainscot in widths of up to 24”can be milled and finished to your requirements. All of our freshly sawn lumber is carefully covered and protected prior to shipment. We have experience in producing reclaimed redwood lumber packages to-order and loading sea containers for export or shipping to your construction location in the Western United States including Alaska and Hawaii, or even internationally to places like Japan and Canada.

Our Experience

We have been building high-end custom homes in Northern California for over 20 years as a General Contractor, Sitecraft Construction Corporation. Many of our building projects have desired or required the environmentally conscious beautiful and unique salvaged or reclaimed materials. We have been locating these materials all over the Western United States and have accumulated an inventory that can be custom sawn and finished to your needs. Over these twenty years, we have accumulated the tools and the experience to transform this salvaged, reclaimed, or recycled redwood into the practical green building materials of unique beauty and application. In addition to building homes, we have been supplying architects, builders, and homeowners with these reclaimed materials for their own projects with the confidence and knowledge that comes from over 20 years of building with these materials ourselves. Check out the links to NEWS for magazine articles about some of the homes that we have built.
