American Prairie

Brown Board

Our take on barn wood paneling is broad and dynamic in scope; incorporating wood that is salvaged not just from barns, but also agricultural fencing and other structures that have endured the elements. Our Brown Board grade is an often requested paneling product for commercial spaces and homes. This grade is appreciated for its rich tones and various texures that may include planed, circle sawn, rough sawn or lightly weathered surfaces. Use in vertical or horizontal installations and both interior and exterior applications. Clad your entire structure or surface a small feature wall; in any amount our Brown Board will add interest to your project. 

*Brown Board is not intended for use as flooring. See our Grandma's Attic product for a similar look in a flooring product. 

Color & Character

Brown Board includes a variety of shades from deep loam to rich golden browns to soft tans. Free from paint, this grade does have knots, occasional saw marks, and nail holes.

SQUARE FOOTAGE CALCULATOR:

Don’t worry, you don’t have to revisit middle school math to figure out how much flooring you’ll need – we make it easy!
 
Flooring, wall paneling, and ceilings are typically ordered by the square foot. To calculate how much you'll need, enter the width & length of the area you’re working on. If your room has an odd shape, enter in the width & length of each area and add them up. Our calculator adds 7% overage to allow for trimming & cutting on the job site. Some overage should be as high as 12%, depending on the project. Our wood experts can help you determine just how much to order.

SHIPPING DETAILS:

Our end:

Your order will be shipped via common carrier in most cases, which allows us to get the best shipping rates possible for you. Orders of flooring, lumber, and millwork are packaged in small “hand-bundles” that can be picked up by one or two people, and then stacked on a larger skid. We then wrap your order in lumber wrap, and shrink wrap the ends of the skid for maximum weather protection.

Your end:

Unloading your material from a truck is quite easy with some extra helpers on hand. The wood comes bundled in manageable sections that in most cases one person can carry at least one bundle.

Costs:

Since each order is different, it is difficult to estimate a typical freight cost, however If you’d like some ideas of the shipping cost for your order, please give us a call.

WOOD FLOORING QUALITY GUARANTEE:

All of Pioneer Millworks wood floors are custom-crafted to the highest standards. Each plank goes through numerous inspections for quality of grading & milling throughout the manufacturing process. We urge you and your installer to inspect your flooring prior to installation. If you are not 100% satisfied with your flooring, please contact us prior to any cutting, nailing, or installation and we will replace any materials which do not meet the grade specifications and information on your signed order confirmation. We reserve the right to require photographs of, or the return of, any material in question prior to the release of replacement flooring. Pioneer Millworks will not accept returns of, or replace, any materials which have been cut or installed once leaving our shop, or damaged in return transit due to improper or insufficient packaging.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Pioneer Millworks has created various grades and descriptions to quantify as best we can the board stock and finished product ordered. Due to the quirkiness and variability of our sources, these descriptions are very good, but not perfect guidelines. For this reason, we request that our customers review and agree to our terms and conditions. View them here.
