We love antique wood.

We also love a good story. When we hear of old barns that are being demolished, we jump at the chance to save them. We rescue this wood and then we turn it into something remarkable. We like to think that we are preserving and continuing the story of every beam, barn door, and board.

It all started out as a dream when founder Gary Horvath saw the opportunity to salvage antique wood and give it new life. With a long history in the wood flooring industry, it was the natural next step to open a reclaimed wood mill. From the wood that we salvage we can create almost anything you can dream of — and that’s what it’s all about.

We’ve been fortunate enough to meet many families living on farms passed down from generation to generation. When their barns are no longer up to date with modern farming practices or fail to prove structurally sound, they call us. Our crew travels from our New Jersey mill to meticulously dismantel these century old structures.

When Gary and the crew arrive at the site, it’s not just a chance to gather materials, but also an opportunity to learn about the land the barn is on, family history, and the community surrounding the barn. Often times we receive old family photos, antiques from inside the barn, and a brief history lesson that we’re excited to share with the future owners of the wood. From civil war stories to clashes with original settlers on the farmland, we’ve amassed an eclectic history of these barns, many of which have been around since our country’s origin.

We take structural beams, siding, tin roofing, doors and other treasures we come across to be salvaged. Trucks are loaded up and sent directly back to our mill to be processed and stored. The material is de-nailed, cleaned, kiln dried, and milled to give the antique wood a second lease on life.
