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 and rough cut dimensional lumber. Our warehouse is open to the public, by appointment, during the week and on some weekends. We supply to Woodworkers, DIY'ers, Designers, Architects, Contractors, Restaurant and Bar Builders, Furniture Builders, Custom Home Builders, Retailers 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 and rounds. We offer custom milling on our site with our own wood supply or yours. 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!
