Salvaged Soul: A Salvaged Wood Home in West Virginia

Willie Drake's family retreat in the West Virginia mountains exemplifies his life's work: salvaging and reusing beautiful old lumber.

Builder Bruce Wohleber crafted the home's many built-in furnishings. To contrast with the extensive use of natural-finish wood, he paneled some walls—such as these in the living room—with the same white-stained oak boards as many of the ceilings.
