Where Does Reclaimed Wood Come From?

T.A. Moulton Barn After the Storm

If you are thinking about investing in some reclaimed wood furniture or some reclaimed wood flooring then you certainly have a lot to think about. After all, you need to think about what you want your wood to be used for and you also need to think about who is going to install it for you as well. With reclaimed wood becoming more and more popular, it helps to know where it actually comes from, so look below to find out more.

Barns, Sheds & More

That’s right. Your coffee table could have been an old shed in a completely different part of America at one point, though the majority of our reclaimed wood comes from the heart of Kentucky. Old structures are often broken down because they take up too much room and they are also recycled to try and conserve as much of the materials as possible. For this reason, your furniture or flooring could have been someone’s barn, place of worship where parishioners once gathered to praise, love and cherish one another as well as older building with a rich history.

Wine Crates, Fruit Baskets and Transportation Crates


Transportation crates are very popular when it comes to reclaimed wood and they remain to be a great way to reuse old and broken crates. If you think about it, your wood could have traveled the world before it reaches your property, becoming naturally aged by both the land and the sea before it is finally reused. The concept alone is exciting, and it remains to be the best way to add character and personality to your home.
