American Home is known for carports, steel buildings, and their exclusive partnership with Azle Garage Door Company, but as of 2013, American Home is proud to announce its newest product in decorative wooden windmills. These handcrafted masterpieces add a touch of elegance to any landscape as well as a vintage feel making us nostalgic for the good ole’ days. The blades of the wooden windmills are made of galvanized metal and the whole product is designed to handle the harsh elements of the outdoors. The base of the wooden windmills are created with pressure treated lumber to ensure its sturdiness and durability.
Some History on the Wooden Windmills of Yester-Year
The wooden windmills of many years prior, were originally used as a method of harnessing the energy of wind and converting it into a sort of rotational energy. This energy was used to develop milling grain in the production of food. The wooden windmill was perhaps a catalyst to many great machines that proceeded. These impressive machines were thought to have been originally created by the Persians between 500 and 900 A.D. to be used in grinding grain. Read more about the history of wooden windmills here.
