It was a pleasure having Mike Yankin provide the reclaimed wood products for us at the fabulous Lahontan Golf Club home of Del Tonge. No maintenance or re-preparation is needed after all these years. The wood from Yankin's Reclaimed is just plain beautiful.

 

It is not just Mike Yankin's ability to find materials, but his vision and his skill to turn an apparently rotten log, old timber, or discarded building material into beautiful siding, trim, or furniture piece. Mike's enthusiasm, creativity, and honesty made him a pleasure to work with.

 

Yankin’s Reclaimed Materials has never disappointed. We have specified any number of exotic reclaimed species of wood and they have always produced; mesquite, walnut, redwood, etc. They also have been able to find hard to get sizes of material, for example, siding boards up to 18” wide and solid sawn beams up to 36” square. The quality of Yankin’s milled lumber is impeccable, better than most new wood suppliers.

 

Yankin’s Reclaimed Materials is the best I’ve found for sourcing unique, beautiful reclaimed products. We have worked with Mike on several SANDBOX residential projects and the results have been extraordinary. Not to mention, Mike is extremely professional to deal with and someone who is passionate about what he does.

 

You probably can find reclaimed wood from several different sources; but you need someone you can trust who knows what to look for and more importantly who knows how to mill the wood to custom and high quality standards. Mike Yankin is a master craftsmen and his quality is at the highest level.

I have built two homes using reclaimed lumber inside and out and milled to perfection from Yankin’s Reclaimed Materials. The homes look spectacular. Mike is a true craftsmen.
