Bridgewood

Bridgewood

Real wood, working wood, big wood.

This is the wood they build bridges with when they don’t have steel.

For hundreds of years this wood carried millions of tons of locomotives, cars and our ancestors across the canyons of America. The cracks and fissures a true historical record of that mighty struggle.

Where would mankind be today if not for wood?  To make our fires, our homes, our bridges and help fashion our very survival.

Wood was the thing that got us here.

Wood was the bridge.

New Home Design and Construction

Big Wood Studio designs and builds residential homes and business centers with important features not seen in the general scheme of today’s ‘normal’ construction ideology.

Interiors are designed to better manage acoustic sound decreasing unwanted echos and distortion allowing for less ‘noise toxic’ environments.  Floor plans lean towards organic shapes of the human form where square walls give way to gentle angles and wide views that encompass cloud and sky as well as garden and tree.  Liberal use of natural stone, wood and bamboo with interior gardens and open expanses of emotional space combine smoothly to bring the outside in.  This special attention to all aspects of creating true ‘living spaces’ full of natural light and earth views give a subtle, underlying sense of well being that you must experience for yourself.

And of course there’s more.  Attached greenhouses where you grow your own food and feed the soul in winter. Solar arrays powering your home and charging your electric vehicles, grey water systems, rain catch and store plumbing (have you ever washed your hair with rainwater?, it’s amazing!), septic systems that water your outdoor plants, appliances, sinks, showers, faucet handles all working together to create an incredibly comfortable and dynamic living experience like no other.

Come and experience an incredible new way to live.

Big Wood Studio and Greg Brooks are waiting to design and build your new home or office space in a way that will change everything you thought you knew about living, inside and out.

About Big Wood Studio

Big Wood Studio presents a modern interpretation of a classic theme stemming from the rustic, solid wood furniture genre.  Big Wood Studio blends the powerful nature of big, solid wood beams and contemporary techniques of present day furniture making with old world hammer and tong fabrication. Hand crafted iron brackets, bridge fasteners and metal connectors combine with antique wood to add flair and statement to these artistic pieces allowing for an nearly indestructible home accessory that will grace any home for generations.  Big Wood Studios and Greg Brooks are focused on preserving and presenting the intrinsic nature of historically significant reclaimed materials such as dismantled wood railroad bridges from the 1800’s and early 1900’s, big beam wooden structures and local wooden auto bridges thathave serviced this country for decades.
