Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of materials do you sell?
We sell old-growth, reclaimed lumber and barn boards of the highest quality, that we salvage from barn deconstruction projects. We also frequently have a varied inventory of other items, like barn doors, hardware, antique wood windows, a huge variety of miscellaneous barn finds like cupolas, hay conveyors, hay rail trolleys, antique pulleys, and much, much more.
The reclaimed barn wood we regularly have in stock includes dimensional lumber (rough cut/true and nominal), from 2x4s to 2x12s, beams and posts (stock is constantly revolving), hand-hewn foundation timbers, hand-hewn squared beams as mantel pieces, plus a variety of 1-by material, like gorgeous 1x4 doug fir tongue and groove, 1x12 siding, ship lap in varied face widths, dutch lap-style siding, and other misc. trim boards, plus small batches of unique appearance boards, "naily" boards (purlins), as well as some "budget" options like our rough cut, nominal 2x6s reclaimed from an Everson Sears kit barn.
We also remanufacture our cutoffs from damaged boards into our exclusive, authentic barn wood wall cladding. We do this to not only save as much waste as possible from landfills, but also to create an incredible, easy to install product that anyone could diy on an accent wall, ceilings, doors, headboards and more! We currently make our wall cladding to order, in either one or a mix of three widths, approx. 2", 3.5", and 4.5-5", in lengths ranging from 18" to 60", and we back-plane every board to a moderately consistent thickness (+/- 1/8") of 1/2". This thickness reduces occurrences of splitting or cupping during or after installation! Color and patina is highly customizable, and we take pride in providing our clients with exactly what they desire.
How do I order reclaimed wood from you, and can I come look at it before I buy?
Of course! We want you to come and see our beautiful wood, as you're bound to get inspired!! We meet by appointment at our shop in N. Bellingham, which is currently on it's way to becoming an organized, covered reclaimed lumber yard! If it's the right timing, we may even invite you to visit a decon site, where you can experience the history and presence of the barn where your materials are sourced from!
Once you decide on a material and determine the amount you'll need, we have you give us a desired range of ransom lengths, and custom-pull and cut your order. We allow most any special requests or considerations that you could ask for, and we also offer planing, sanding, and finishing services of all kinds.
It is our standard procedure to collect a 50% deposit to reserve and to prepare your order to your specifications. This is payable via cash, check, Venmo, PayPal, Chase Quickpay with Zelke, and cashapp. We can also send very user-friendly invoices through Square, and can accept card payments in person through Square POS as well. Lead times will vary depending on the amount of material you order and what type.
We uphold a very high standard of quality when cleaning and processing the barn wood, both of us in complete control of ensuring that you only receive boards that are undamaged, de-naIled, and gently pressure washed, and we also keep track of which barn each board
so that we can tell you the all about the history of the barn (or barns) that your specific material originated from, and are happy to provide a letter sized print with a photo of the barn and a shirt summary of the barn's history :).
I love the reclaimed wood but it's a little too pricey for me. Do you ever make trades or special deals in exchange for materials?
We love to trade, although for most larger orders we can only do partial trades. If you have something of value that we're interested in, or a skill/talent that you can offer to help the business, we will always consider it! We Also (on a case by case basis) can be open to setting up a short-term payment plan, because we want to make such sustainable and smart building materials totally accessible to anyone who would like it!
