A simple design is more authentic to the farmhouse style. However with a little imagination, a modern or industrial look is also achievable with the help of angle iron or other metal building materials. After Billy built this beautiful barn door from salvaged pine lap siding, the customer got really creative and added their own stainless steel hardware for a more industrial style. Just gorgeous!
Eco Relics is home to a wide variety of reclaimed lumber that is perfect for building a sliding barn door, including authentic barn wood, heart pine, oak, walnut, cypress, and in this case, salvaged pine lap siding. Our custom fabricators have built dozens of barn doors for our customers. They are an invaluable resource to consult for your own project, whether you plan to do it yourself or have us build it for you.
Think back to a time in America when things were built sturdy and built to last, with such wood species as heart pine and domestic and exotic hardwoods. Our custom barn doors are made from hand select species of woods that have beautiful natural characteristics and authentic rustic charm. These custom barn doors will add a unique statement to any design style.
For many it’s not just the rustic beauty that these custom barn doors possess, it’s the history or the heritage. A truly authentic aged, salvaged or reclaimed barn door is so much more special with all the nicks and cuts, knot holes and nails, especially if you’ve salvaged it from an old barn where you may have rolled in the hay as a kid!
Woodworking with reclaimed and salvaged lumber is a great way to lend some authentic Americana to a DIY project. “Weathered” is not a look that is easily faked. When done wrong, it just looks terrible. On the other hand, genuine patina not only adds aesthetic value to a piece, it can also provide a protective covering to material that might otherwise be damaged. From modern industrial designs to country farmhouse style, reclaimed timbers can do it all with style and grace.
We build each and every barn door as if it were being installed in our own home, and would welcome the opportunity to build a barn door for you.
