Richard Ourso, a pioneering entrepreneur, founded Ourso Designs in 2000.
Building on decades of skilled woodworking and successful
craftsmanship, Richard’s budding business quickly grew. Richard holds
the National Kitchen and Bath designation, Certified Kitchen Designer or
CKD as well as certification in aging-in-place or CAPS. He has been a
member of the National Kitchen and Bath Association for over 10 years
and is an active member in the National Association of Home Builders
(NAHB) and our local group Capitol Region Builders Association (CRBA).
At the start of 2013 Richard Ourso began the process of launching Ourso Designs' sister company, The Olde Mill. While involved in the kitchen and bath industry, Richard started designing with beams but recognized the hassle of specifiying solid beams. After 20 years of dedicated research and hard work, Richard created the hollow box beam that is now handcrafted and responsible for the success of The Olde Mill.
Ourso Designs presents its sister company...
Manufacturer of handcrafted reclaimed wood home products and box beams.
Why Box Beams?
- Easy to Install
- Conceals conventional framing
- Installation of can lights possible
- Easy way to add character.
- It minimizes the use of natural resources. Reclaimed
wood reduces the need to cut down young trees in the forest because it is recycled.
Using reclaimed wood helps to preserve nature.
- Because the beams are hollow, they reduce the package
weight, which decreases cargo capacity weight which reduces carbon emissions.
Why Use Reclaimed Wood?
Reclaimed wood uses fewer chemical treatments. New
wood is treated thoroughly to achieve a good appearance. But, when it comes to
reclaimed wood, fewer treatments are needed in order to achieve a beautiful
appearance. Distressed marks already add beauty to the wood, which makes
it more attractive and natural.
In the end….IT IS GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT. Since
there are fewer chemicals in reclaimed wood, it helps to promote better air
quality. You can feel comfortable knowing that your family isn't surrounded by
harsh chemicals on a daily basis.
