America's heritage has stood in the fields and beside farm houses for over a century in the form of barns. Historic barns are becoming more difficult to find, and due to the increase in comercially zoned land are being destroyed. Reclaimed Barns & Beams reclaims the wood from these hand hewed, pinned barns that have stood the tests of time. It is our hope that we can transform this wood into vintage farm tables, chairs, ceiling beams, mantles and more. This will give us a chance to keep the history of these barns alive and with us for years to come.

It can be a crowbar, a hammer, or a chainsaw in my hand. I love the work. There is something exciting to me about being in these old barns. You never know what you will find or what someone else will create from what I find. The work is hard, tiring, and so very dirty, but I just love doing it. 

Reclaimed Barns & Beams provides lumber to those who create using historic wood that has a story.

That is who we are: moms… entrepreneurs.

The house is so quiet now: they are asleep.  I open my computer to check Facebook, answer emails, and blog. The day will go so fast. I will barely get done what I have planned. Does anyone ever get done what they have planned? They will be awake soon…

I have been up for hours. So much to do! Where to start… I walk through the living room gathering dirty clothes and empty glasses thinking about blog topics that I need to get started. Soon, four of my children will run out the back door in hopes of not being late for school. Only four because the other three got out of Dodge and went off to college or work; truthfully, they found peace and quiet and never looked back. Big families are rarer than they used to be. They are exciting, and tiring; rewarding and challenging, and I love it.

Maybe this is what prepared me best to be an entrepreneur. Juggling a career and a large family gave me the skill set better than anything else to start my own business. I mean you work and you work for your children all for questions and criticism. And like our children as much as we love the businesses that we start, they exhausts us.

As mothers and as entrepreneurs we constantly question ourselves. Are we making the right decisions? Should we spend this money or save it for the rainy day. How hands on should we be? Whose advise do we accept and whose do we ignore?

Like our children our businesses will always be our babies. And when they succeed or fail, we take it to heart. We don’t give up on them; we just love them and work harder for them. That is who we are: moms… entrepreneurs.
