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.

We purchased and had a 6”x 6” wooden beam installed above our fireplace. We are so happy with the result! It looks amazing and we love that the wood has history. Stopping by the workshop in Antioch was perfect as well. We were able to pick our wood and saw some of the amazing woodworking projects that are under way. I highly recommend using them!

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
