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.

How does one find barn wood or as I know it now, Reclaimed Lumber?  Well one gets in her car, drives through the country side, and finds a barn.  After a, “No, I don’t want to tear down my barn.” I had to find another barn. These had to be old. At that time that is all I knew. I needed barns with pinned beams. So I drove until I found another one.  And, “I don’t know anyone that wants to tear down a barn!”  This was the response I was given time and time again. “So many no’s lead to a yes.” I’ve learned after a decade of working in sales, so I kept asking until I found my yes.  “Sure you can tear down our barn in trade for the lumber. When can you start?” was the actual response. Not only did I find a yes, I found “that’s one ridiculously huge gambrel dairy barn”! And we could have it all, I just had to find a way to tear it down with no money to invest.  A 45 foot tall Gambrel barn filled with lumber, I could not let a little thing like no money or no clue what to do stop us.  I knew as I stood there agreeing to take this barn down that no one was going to believe this, but it could be done. And I was going to do it.
