VERNON, Texas -- The old, dilapidated Cotton Coop warehouse located in the quiet West Texas town of Vernon certainly looks rough from the road -- but as we all know -- the rough is where diamonds are found.

The figurative “diamond” in this massive 120-year-old building is right under the feet of the workers who are now dismantling it down board by board.... the incredible 19^th -century wooden floors, as straight and rock solid as the day they were hammered down.

Demolition of the massive cotton gin is underway in this dusty town about 170 miles northwest from Fort Worth, just along the Red River border with Oklahoma. It’s a place where time sometimes seems to stand still, amid the rusted and idle pump-jack looking like ghosts of past oil field booms and busts.

In its prime the gin served to separate tons of precious fiber from cotton bolls for scores of farmers toiling the arid land; since 1900, however, it has stood, stoically enduring the freezing winter cold and the infamous triple-digit Texas summers.

Keller D. Crowley, of AssetBuyers, Inc., who is overseeing the marketing of the material sees the potential in the old wood. Old-growth lumber really does not exist anymore. The only way to get it is to salvage it from old barns, houses or structures like this gin."

The market for reclaimed lumber is one of the hottest in the building industry, according to Steve Easley, an internationally known construction consultant.

"The beauty of reclaimed lumber is its well seasoned, very stable, less subject to warping, crowning. You know it's not going to change," Easley says, "It's also attractive because reclaimed wood often has a great patina. You’re using it twice which reduces green house gas emissions from manufacturing."

"Wood is a very environmentally friendly building material. It takes a fraction of the energy to produce wood building components compared to steel and concrete. Trees store carbon,” Easley adds

Reclaimed lumber is used in rustic finish outs, molding, wood floors and high-end furniture to name just a few applications.

The Vernon Cotton Coop is filled with long-leaf pine and Douglas fir, Crowley says, adding that there are thousands of square-feet of lumber that can be reclaimed.

"Multiple projects will come out of this material," Crowley said. “There are hundreds of architects and builders out there who would love to get their hands on this wood. The grain is perfect and the patina cannot be reproduced using modern woods."

Asset managers like Crowley take care to evaluate demolition jobs like the Vernon gin to ensure their owners receive full value for any items that can be salvaged. "If I'm not selling the recycled material in the process then I'm not doing my job," Crowley said. “This is a great way to make sure this valuable wood is reclaimed and resold, and doesn't end up in the landfill."

The cotton gin is also filled with old brick, metal pipe that can be reclaimed and reused, along with tin and other building materials that in the past would have been hauled to the dump. But the lumber is where the most value exists, according to Crowley.

"The company I'm working for was quoted several hundred thousand dollars to tear this building down," Crowley said. "By doing it my way and carefully reclaiming the wood, the company will make money instead of just paying money. It’s good for the environment, and good for the bottom line."
