Topic tags/keywords: barn wood reclaimed floors post

Currently working on reclaiming an entire 100+ year old house and a 100+ year old barn. Problem not enough time in a day. Both place have lots of great pieces. Saved 10 doors today and will reclaim much more next week with two full days to work.

Are the door casings unique or just run of the mill? I like old buildings and barns. Find any great timbers yet?

See, what you need to do is go to a candle shop, and buy a long lasting candle that lets you burn it at both ends. Then you will have enough hours in the day for your project! ;-)

Oh, and good luck, looks like a lot of fun…
