A remarkable story: 18 century old oak beams salvaged!
Last week we have received a batch of oak beams originating from Castle Boekenberg. The Antwerp castle should have been divided into several apartments; the supporting structural beams were still strong and would be preserved during the renovation.
Now this morning we read the tragic news that the castle was completely destroyed by a major fire. It feels somewhat strange that only a week ago, the oak beams were still in the supporting structure of the castle.
