It's hard to believe that these beautiful cabinets started out life not just in a barn, but as a barn.

This Pennsylvania company specializes in turning barn beams, siding and boards into flooring and milled lumber for home projects.

Remilling, sanding and finishing brings out the rich patina in the antique oak and chestnut used in this custom wall unit. The room pictured also has reclaimed oak flooring and recycled hand-hewn beams.

Reusing the antique wood is not only ecologically sound, but it provides wood, like chestnut, that is no longer available new.

Stock varies, but generally includes heart pine, hemlock, chestnut, cedar and oak. The mill will work with you to choose wood right for your project. Orders are custom milled.
