Custom made barn doors are still hot because they are the quintessential salvaged wood project. A simple design is more authentic to the farmhouse style. With a little imagination, a modern or industrial look is also achievable with the help of angle iron or other metal building materials.
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, cyprus, and other domestic and exotic hardwood lumber. 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.
Our Custom Barn Doors Are Hot!
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.
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.
The Classic Z Configuration
This beautifully classic door would make a welcome addition to anyones home. Made from reclaimed barn wood each custom barn door is unique and inviting.
The classic Z styling used in construction was primarily for added strength and support to many different types of structures. Wooden chests, doors and panels were given a classic overlay of the Z configuration to avoid warping. This particular Z custom barn door is a classic style and represents a practical yet aesthetically pleasing decor.
This particular custom barn door pair was constructed from salvaged 100 year old heart pine. This old lumber has stood the test of time and is now in a new forever home where it will hopefully stand for another hundred years.
This classic design is also very appealing because of its clean straight lines and the warm tones of the old heart pine that was used.
Solid, rugged, sturdy. These doors will last a lifetime!
Rustic Farmhouse Beauty
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. These were just a few examples of Custom and DIY Upcycle and Repurpose Projects For Salvaged and Reclaimed Building Materials.
