New Timbers? Or Old?

This post and beam party barn was built with rough sawn hemlock timbers…they look old, but are they?  What do you think?

We call them “weathered” and they were weathered by us, in our field, for several months. The client then left his timber frame uncovered for a year, need some finished pictures of this project.

Authentic reclaimed timbers are available, they are more costly but worth every penny (in my opinion).  If this is the timber look you want, it’s very difficult to fake it.

Which do you prefer? Timbers that look old?  Or the real deal?
