We at Barn Detail, Inc. are committed to, thoroughly appreciate and support the use of reclaimed woods, while using sustainable practices for a greener, cleaner earth. We harvest reclaimed woods from barns and antique structures, doing our part to protect our forests and new growth trees. Recycling these previously cut hardwoods allows the impressive beauty to find new life in your building project, while responsibly co-existing with nature. Purchasing our reclaimed, antique wood helps reduce both demolition waste and energy required for manufacturing new or engineered products. Our shop generates heat in winter by the efficient burning of our own wood by-products, negating the need for gas, oil or electric heat. An outdoor furnace connected to a radiant floor slab heats the entire shop floor. We are LEED Standards compatible. LEED is Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. It is the leading accepted measure for green building. There are financial incentives such as tax rebates and zoning allowances attached to LEED certification, as well as the piece of mind available to you when you utilize reclaimed products, commit to a small footprint, and honor our environment if only for one project at a time.
