ABOUT SLEDGE SEATTLE
Deconstructing local historical homes, piece by piece, Sledge sustainably reclaims wood and processes it into reusable base materials. Using the mastery of local artisans, Sledge renews the life of the tree branches by building beautiful decorative and furniture pieces that respect their origin and patterns, creating deeper connections to any home.
In deconstruction, the building never dies, it simply reorganizes, transforming and branching off into countless new existences. Patterns, life, and history enmeshed in a structure waiting to be released and reborn. Waiting to be carefully disassembled, valued, transformed, and celebrated in new and exciting uses.
A FULL CYCLE 3-STEP PROCESS
ALL DONE WITHIN 100 MILES OF SEATTLE
Piece-by-piece, the historic home or building is disassembled by hand. Different materials, based on the size, strength, finish and texture, are sorted and documented.
STEP ONE: DECONSTRUCT
By re-processing the materials through live milling, re-surfacing, and re-shaping - while respecting its initial grain and pattern - it is ready to be transformed for a second life.
STEP TWO: REHARVEST
Using local expert craftsmen, Sledge transforms the renewed materials into new pieces, ranging from furniture, housewares, and barn doors, to smaller decorative accent pieces.
