Proper acclimation of Montana Ghost Wood is essential to favorable product performance. All wood products expand and contract with changes in the ambient moisture; following these tips will help to minimize the movement of the Ghost Wood products after installation:
1) Locate the Ghost Wood as close to the point of usage as is practicable. (For indoors, locate in the room of usage.)
2) Block off of the ground, cover the top only and protect from direct sunlight and precipitation.
3) Stack using spacers between the layers to allow for free air circulation.
4) Allow to acclimate for 10-14 days or longer depending on conditions.
The goal is for the moisture content of the Ghost Wood to be as close as possible to that of the place of usage.
ABOUT THE PRODUCT
After taking a few summer trips to Bannack State Park, it always amazed us how all the old structures still stood. It only made sense to put that name to the color of our first Montana Ghost Wood product.
Founded in 1862, when John White discovered gold on Grasshopper Creek, Bannack was where the great Montana boom began. Many prospectors, refugees from the Civil War, and businessmen hoping to strike it rich rushed to Bannack, then known as the Queen of the Gold Camps. Thievery and vigilantes abounded. In 1864, Bannack was named as the first Territorial Capital of Montana but soon the Capital moved on to Virginia City where new loads of gold were found. From the late 1860s to the early 1930s, Bannack continued as a mining town where individuals experimented with mining techniques and raised families. By the 1950’s most people had left and the State of Montana declared Bannack a state park. Today over 60 structures full of raw beauty may be viewed. The cemetery holds the ancestors of many early Montanans and reveals their history.
