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.

“This isn’t just business: it is personal.”

I love old hard wood floors and the sound of my children running through the kitchen and hearing their bare feet smacking against it.  I treasure the feeling of my handmade table top. It reminds me of my grandma’s house when I was ten. Knowing those things about me doesn’t tell you how long I’ve been in business or how skilled I am at woodworking, but it will help you understand how passionate I am about what matters most... How you feel about your home! It tells me what you want that space to reflect about you.  Maybe you grew up in the country, but live in a busy town now, and you want a piece of country to share with others when they visit and to remind you of where you came from…. Or you are like my customer last week. You purchased a new apartment in the city and it is filled with iron, brick and beams. He wanted his décor to match that. He wanted those that entered that space to feel that industrial look that he loves so much.

I love to search through the piles of lumber to find something you will fall in love with. That wood  for your dream table that will find its way into your forever home. A space in which you will share memories, laughter and tears with your friends, children, and loved ones.  It isn’t about just purchasing a new mantel to replace the old one. It is so much bigger than that. It is about finding just the right piece that reflects who you are. That special memory that has stuck with you since childhood. That design you saw in a magazine that grabbed your attention and stayed with you. A feeling you get when you see something you know is all you.

Knowing you as my customers helps me do more than create a special design or look for your home, and your families. Taking the time to sit and talk allows us to get to know one another. Sharing with me how your home feels and looks creates a connection. What colors you enjoy and what you just cannot stand gives me insight…. Where you drink your coffee, your favorite T.V. shows, your children’s lives... I find out where my customers work or about their pets. Taking the time to get to know each other allows me to learn about what matters to you; your home, your style, and that special environment that you want to design.

The idea that I will create a piece of furniture or an accent wall that will express who you are is almost overwhelming. It is absolutely humbling to think that so many will trust me to be part of their personal space. Because isn’t that what our homes are; our most personal space. Where are able to let our guard down, surround ourselves with things we treasure, and entertain those that mean the most to us. It is an honor to be part of that space.

That is why it is so important that we get to know one another. “This isn’t just business: it is personal.”
