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.

Just who am I?

Just who am I? I wanted to take a moment to share some answers to some of the questions I get.

What is it like having seven children is the one I am asked the most? I know it really is unusual, right? What was I thinking? I always wanted a Walton like family. For me being an only child at home growing up, I craved the busy sounds that a house full of children brought with it. Boy did I get that. There is always someone looking for something that only I can find. Many of you relate I am sure. Someone always has a story to tell or a problem to solve. I often feel like a detective, nurse, chef, and counselor. One of the boys’ friends asked me if I felt like an Uber driver. He nailed it.

I love to plant things. Gardens, flowers, trees… Anything outside. Nothing inside. The tendency here is for me to exhibit my overachiever abilities. I could plant a few tomato plants, but no. Instead I put out 25 tomato plants. Overachiever abilities are hard to suppress.  So, I make salsa, chili sauce, spaghetti sauce. Canning is something a dear woman taught me when I was in my late teens. I have loved it ever since. It goes along with my Walton like lifestyle.

Do you travel: Too much. I used to love to travel. Too much of a good thing though is bad. With my corporate work, I had to be on the road extensively. Planes, trains, and automobiles often all in the same day were my norm. Give me my porch swing and a fire in the fire pit, and that is as far as I want to go.

Some of my loves are Chicago- {I’ll always travel there!} Sunrise only to compete with sunset. Veggie pizza, and the smell of rain in the spring.

I am somewhat of a tom girl. Explains the barn deconstruction a bit, doesn’t it. Football, cannot get enough of it. Roll Tide- another love of mine. And horseback riding,  I am ready anytime.

Bossy and loud… I am very loud. I just like to talk and laugh. We only get so many trips around the sun. I want to enjoy them all. It seems there are enough sad and negative people in the world. Why be another one.

Why start a business with everything else you have going?… why not!
