We find the wood.
BarnBeautiful finds old barns to harvest the wood before nature reclaims it herself. We do all the work to care for each step of the process from the beginning of its journey until it makes its way into your home.
We record the history.
BarnBeautiful records the story about every barn, the land on which it was built, and the ways in which each structure was used. Each finished piece is numbered so you can read about it on our website. Here, you’ll find a complete history of the structure where your wood originated.
We cook the wood.
All the wood is heat-treated to at least 165 degrees to get the bugs out with no harmful pesticides.
We stand by our work.
Each BarnBeautiful piece is handcrafted with great love and caring but always from reclaimed materials. As such, irregularities are a natural part of what makes each piece unique. If you are ever unsatisfied with your custom creation for any reason, just let us know. We’ll make it right.
Who is BarnBeautiful?
Greg Horton founded BarnBeautiful in 2009. A craftsman, artist, engineer, and manager, Greg is above all, authentic. Raised in south Georgia, he learned to mind his mamma and help his dad build things. His time spent in barns, sheds and slop houses were among the richest in his memory. After college, he worked the corporate grind for few years, but longed for doing something with more meaning… with his hands.
The opportunity came when Greg learned an old workshop his granddaddy built was falling in disrepair. He recovered the wood, built some stuff and well, the rest really became history.
Greg’s partner, several friends and neighbors all help with the ins and outs of running the business allowing him to focus on bringing you all the handcrafted pieces you see here today as well as custom creations of your dreams.
Greg loves nothing more than helping your vision become a reality. Contact us to let BarnBeautiful make your dream come true.
