Centennial Woods Products Featured in Modern Glass and Steel Architecture Near Yellowstone

Mixed Horizontal and Vertical Board-and-Batt Application Illustrates Modern Application of Historic Reclaimed Wyoming Snowfence

LARAMIE, WY--(Marketwire - June 4, 2009) - Centennial Woods announced today that a Yellowstone-area homeowner and a Cody, Wyoming builder has used the company's reclaimed siding, trim and soffit products as the central feature in a modern glass and steel design.

"When we first started we were a little apprehensive about using uneven lumber," said Dave Filener of Filener Construction. "But it was easy to work with, the result was great, and I'm glad we did it. We have something we can be proud of when referring clients -- it's an asset."

The home features the company's color and gray snowfence siding products in horizontal butted and vertical board-and-batt applications, and features extensive use of the company's soffit and window trim products.

"We covered the entire exterior with Centennial Woods' reclaimed wood and we are very satisfied with the outcome," said the homeowner. "We have not treated the exterior in any way, under the assumption that the 10-20 years of previous weathering of this wood had already cured it."

Centennial Woods' siding comes in eight- to sixteen-foot random length packs with a nominal 1"x6" profile. The unfinished product is available with a variety of facings and is designed to support on-site installations. The company's soffit comes pre-cut.

"This installation is one of the most creative that I have seen," said vice president Grant Porder of Centennial Woods. "The builder achieved very tight and clean lines both in the siding and around the windows, and their use of gray siding on the facing beautifully offset the colored siding installed in the entryway and around the garage."

"I have to give credit to the owner's creativity, too. They had the idea of using the mixed horizontal and vertical applications," said Filener. "And the wood is very appropriate for this area. The house really blends into the mountain."

About Centennial Woods

Before Centennial Woods began harvesting Wyoming snowfence, older boards were often left on the frame until they failed and then burned or thrown into a landfill when replaced. Centennial Woods discovered its strength and beauty and vowed to rescue and reuse it.

Since 1999, Centennial Woods has been maintaining and reclaiming snowfence from the mountainsides and open prairies of Wyoming to create its line of interior and exterior specialty wood products for residential and commercial use around the world. To support its reclamation mission, Centennial Woods has developed an international market for this green Wyoming export. To date, Centennial Woods has reclaimed 6 million linear feet of Wyoming snowfence, the equivalent of 105 miles; keeping more than 10,000 tons of CO2 from being emitted into the atmosphere and saving the state of Wyoming and other entities more than $10 million.

Centennial Woods' reclaimed Wyoming snowfence is naturally dried for decades by the Wyoming wind, which produces an intensely beautiful, perfectly dried, strong and true reclaimed board. Centennial Woods is a member of the US Green Building Council ( and is proud to be one of Wyoming's great green products. Learn more on the web at
