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.

A Video?

What is it you do?

So many ask, "What is it you do?"

I thought a set of videos would be helpful... 

So here is the first. I promise they will get better. I just wanted to share what type of barns we deconstruct.

Yep, we actually take the barns down one board at a time. Our hope is to cause as little damage as possible. We scale beams, rent lifts, and use any tool that will make the process easier. Our crew is small, but we are mighty. 

We take barns down in trade for their lumber. Some are thrilled to find someone that will take down a barn for them and move it off their site. Others, understandably so, would like a return on their barn. We just aren't at that stage in the game yet. If we ever get there, we will let everyone know. 

After the reclaimed lumber is down we take it back to our shop. There we de-nail it, clean it up, trim off the unusable parts and prepare it for sale. It is easy to say, but it is actually a great deal of work. 

Thank you for following us and watching us grow as we are Reclaiming our dreams.
