WHAT WE DO
We provide a wide variety of highest quality reclaimed materials from multiple sources around the United States. We reclaim barns from Colorado, the Midwest, New England and the southeastern states. Our reclaimed commercial materials come from the great industrial centers of our nation and reflect the strong character and resiliency of the men and women who forged our prosperity. We’re always on the hunt for structures that provide unique materials for our customers, choosing them with an eye for quality, durability, value and distinctive look. Our goal is always to offer our customers the best reclaimed materials at a competitive price.
We enjoy working with a variety of people to make their reclaimed material project come to life. We have relationships with contractors, interior designers, architects, installers, and homeowners. We can work up designs in house, do take-offs from blueprints, or source specific materials for big jobs.
HOW WE DO IT
Our business grew out of our appreciation for the historical significance of reclaimed materials and our commitment to sustainable building practices. We only work with select suppliers who have a respect for the material and who we trust to meet our high standards of quality and integrity. In-house milling allows us seamless control over projects from start to finish, guaranteeing an exceptional level of quality, beauty and authenticity. Our installation team has a diverse skill set, including classic timber frame techniques, interior craftsmanship and custom metalworking services. We trust all of our partners to handle and process our materials with the utmost care, to preserve their unique character and historic value.
