Gras Wood Wide is often involved in projects for the preservation of historical monuments. As we import our own products, we are able to deliver quickly, also in case of deviating sizes, which is important for these kinds of restorations. The Markiezenhof in Bergen op Zoom, Slot Loevestein in Poederoijen, the Refugiehuis in Den Bosch, Paleis Noordeinde and Paleis Huis ten Bosch in The Hague are some of the best-known projects. We have mainly supplied pine, Oregon pine and western red cedar.
As the offspring of an old mill builders’ guild, it is fantastic to be able to report that many mills that have been restored in recent years have been supplied with the right materials by us.

It is generally known that the easiest way to achieve passive building (energy-neutral) is to build in and with wood. Therefore, timber-frame construction is the answer to passive building in the Netherlands. It may not be very popular in the Netherlands (yet), but it is all the more popular in our neighbouring countries. As specialists, we have been able to deliver various renowned wood frame construction projects.
We have in stock sawn pine in extra heavy dimensions for the constructions of restoration projects and western red cedar for facades, coming from the primeval land of timber construction: Canada.
