architectural salvage products
Build Antique, a family-owned business based outside Stellenbosch, offers a selection of vintage building materials.  

These items contribute to building or renovating in an eco-friendly way. Salvaged decades ago, rather than letting them disappear into landfills, the items embrace the benefits of zero waste.  


Build Antique makes it easy to source unique and distinctive doors and windows that have stood the test of time. The vast collection of unique, reclaimed building materials includes a selection of more than 400 doors, ranging from sought-after teak to more economical meranti. A large variety of windows is also available, including Burmese teak and iroko, and magnificent, vintage arched teak and sash windows.
