Forever Barnwood

The Road to Our Rustic Barnwood Products

Our staff has a deep appreciation for the simple beauty and rustic charm of barnwood. But we know how limited the options are in sourcing reclaimed wood, with an aging process that naturally takes years. For this reason, we devised a patent pending treatment process that captures the unique qualities of barnwood with a quicker turnaround time and more affordable prices.

We use fresh-cut kiln-dried Wisconsin white pine to create a wide range of products, like barn doors, beams, countertops, flooring, mantles, and shiplap. All products are individually hand processed to capture the quality we are known for, and we can customize them to be a perfect fit for your projects.
