My husband and I always try to support local business, and working with Born Again Barns in Antioch didnt disappoint. We are remodeling our kitchen and wanted a custom butcher block countertop for our island. What we got is a gorgeous, one of a kind statement peice for our new kitchen. From discussing the project to picking out the wood and helping us create our countertop, Born Again Barns and Lumber Co made the process simple and stress free. We absolutely love the countertop and highly recommend them!

Very nice staff. Jeff spent time walking me around and suggesting some very nice boards. I ended up taking home more than I came for since prices were very fair and my money went further than I expected. I will definitely be back.

My husband and I just left this company. Wow I cant say enough how wonderful the staff and owners are. They are so patient, knowledgable, and helpful. The prices are awesome especially compared to other nearby places like All American Reclaim. I will recommend if you are looking for anything wood you check them out first. They also make beautiful pieces and can custom make anything you can dream of.

About Us

Born Again Barns And Lumber Co. is not your average lumber yard. We are the Chicagoland area's premier manufacturer and supplier of rough-sawn urban wood and reclaimed lumber. We are a specialty lumber company focused on natural live edge slabs, reclaimed barn wood, custom fireplace mantels, shelves, tables, vanities, bar tops, epoxy resin projects, charcuterie serving boards and more. Our warehouse is open to the public. We supply to Woodworkers, DIY'ers, Designers, Architects, Contractors, Restaurant and Bar Builders, Furniture Builders, Custom Home Builders, Retailers, Homeowners and more! We also offer custom woodworking and finishing. 

We salvage logs from tree removal jobs between Chicago and Milwaukee for reasons other than their timber value that would otherwise have been taken to a landfill, or turned into mulch or firewood. We then mill these logs into usable materials like live edge slabs, boards, beams, mantles, stair treads, rounds, etc. We offer custom milling on our site with our own wood supply or yours. In addition, we dismantle Barns to reclaim and preserve the wood to let it live on for another century. Our vision is to continue preserving these beautiful pieces of wood and to make them available for others to enjoy in a new form, for many more years to come. This is our passion, and we hope to make it yours too!

Our products include:

- Kiln dried live edge slabs, small, large, and unique slabs
- Reclaimed barn wood boards in many sizes and colors
- Reclaimed barn beams, flooring, roofing purlins, floor joists and rafters - rough sawn, circle sawn, smooth and hand hewn
