The Process

The Process:

The Process of Reclaiming Old Barns Dismantling old barns and structures consists of a lot of physical labor with minimal use of automated equipment. More hands on labor gives us the ability to preserve the beauty and integrity of the wood. The lumber is examined for defects, any nails are removed, then it is sorted for proper thickness and species on site, before being hauled to the production yard.

Final elimination of defects, nail removal, and metal detecting is done at the yard. The next step is kiln drying at high enough temperatures to meet the industry standards of 6 to 9 percent moisture content. Drying in a kiln before milling also kills any unseen bacteria, mold, and insects that might be hiding in the wood.

The final step is getting the product milled and ready for your home! Milling the wood into a finished product is all done at our manufacturing building by trained craftsman. Precise milling procedures are used to retain the authenticity of the wood along with unique finishing techniques to achieve the desired effects.
