Forgive the duplicate post; I also posted this on Alan Miller's article before I saw this story...
Barns are being "repurposed" all over the country, including up here in northeast Ohio.
Mt. Hope Planing, in Mt. Hope, OH has started a separate division (MHP Flooring) that makes flooring, wainscoting and trim from new and reclaimed wood; the reclaimed wood being sourced almost exclusively from barns. Contact info is: 7621 Twp Rd 652 Millersburg, OH 44654 -(888) 549-2524
An extremely gifted artisan (Todd caldwell) began making furniture in Wayne County from reclaimed barn wood a year or so ago. Mr. Caldwell has since relocated to Tennessee, but his website is still up: www.barnwoodfurniturecreations.com . Todd's designs will blow you away, and must be seen in person to be appreciated.
The only drawback with reclaiming barn wood is, it has to be disassembled, transported, de-nailed, dried and re-sawn. All of this drives the cost up, sometimes significantly. But the end result is absolutely magnificent!
