In a house, have you ever seen planks of wood used as trim before? Here,it’s namely 1x4’s used as trim. It’s actually quite amusing.

I’m not sure if this is a specific artistic appeal, or they did this to keep costs down; but it’s weird and/yet fascinating at the same time. I have never seen this before I moved into this house, and I wonder if this is a thing or not.

Most of the windows have this style of trim.

Any doors leading outside have this trim.

We even have some floor trim like this too.

Not sure how well you can see it, but the stairs are made in a similar fashion, just planks of wood, screwed together.

Oddly, the trim gives it a ‘cabin in the woods’ feel, at least to MrsZtp and I. I mean, we do live in the country, and we do have a room that the walls and ceiling are made of wood, so the wood trim really brings it out. It makes it seem ‘simple’, which is why we like it.

So oppo, has anyone ever seen this done in a house before? I’m curious if there is.
