       Dotski Barn             Cheboygan, MI

    The Dotski barn was built in 1865. This was one of the first families to begin farming land in the Cheboygan area. Several roads are actually named after them and their later generations. The land originally farmed (over 2,000 acres) is still in the family to this day. The barn was built mainly of hemlock which falls under the pine category. All of its beams are hand hewn. We take a great amount of satisfaction in being able to salvage these beams and fashion them into beautiful, functional furniture. Keep checking back with us to see what these eventually are transformed into!

     

    The Barn Kaleidoscope

    The Barn Kaleidoscope

    All the barns we reclaim have a story.  They have a personality.  Many times they are just plain worn out and are inviting us to take them down.  To give them some peace and rest from the wind and weather.   Its as if the wood is ready to come inside and start its new life as a table, cabinet or wall covering...

    This small grey barn was a little different.  It was in good shape and had maintained itself thru many a Michigan winter.  When i got inside it the sun popped out and created some unique patterns with the wood and light.  I just stood inside and enjoyed the picture show. The patterns and colors were like being on the inside of a black and white kaleidoscope.  A memory i will never forget.   This barn gave me more than wood for a table.
