Why Reuse?

The luxury apartment shown below features multiple uses of reclaimed wood from an old granary we deconstructed.

This luxury apartment (a Vacation Rental above our garage) features multiple uses of reclaimed wood from an old granary we deconstructed. The work desk on the left is fashioned from wall studs. The flooring is remanufactured flooring from the granary. Wainscot on the distant wall was siding, remade into bead board. Siding was also made into base trim. You can just barely catch a glimpse of the window seat in the bay window, made with mostly reclaimed lumber.

The vanity top is made from 2x6 wall studs. Trim around doors was remade from siding, as were the bedroom ceilings. The towel bar above the sink is made from reclaimed lumber.

Oak beams from a deconstructed early 1900's farm building were repurposed in this modern home's ceiling and fireplace mantle. 


Fiberglass insulation and cedar tongue & groove boards reclaimed from a Tomah, Wisconsin home deconstruction, enhanced this West Salem, Wisconsin workshop.


The unique shelving unit shown here was made from floor joists from a deteriorating granary. The flooring is mixed width skip-planed oak, remanufactured from roofing boards reclaimed from a farm shed.

Horizontal red weathered barn siding (frequently called "Dutch Lap”) made a nice accent wall for this farm family’s mudroom.


Barn beams were used to create this awesome fireplace mantle.

A local “Events Barn” used weathered barn siding to continue the “barn theme” on interior walls.


Solid wood panel doors and fancy base trim we reclaimed from an older farmhouse were incorporated in the restoration of this Bangor, Wisconsin home makeover.

Weathered barn siding made great wainscot for this comfortable “man cave”.
