TABLES / SEATING / CLADDING / BAR / JOCKEY BOX / BARN RE-BUILD
At 100 years old, this barn’s revitalization will allow for another century of admiration of the craftsmanship intrinsic to Northeast Ohio. Like the barn, everything in it is locally-made, sourced in the USA, and has a unique story to tell - care of Rustbelt Reclamation.
The wood that adorns the interior was harvested on-site from both the horse barn and a nearby mechanic’s barn. By using materials saved from the very property it sits on, the historic integrity of the structure was upheld and also reinvigorated with new purpose. Preservation of the building and re-use of materials that came directly from the horse barn itself were essential to the revival of this property. A once uninhabitable structure now showcases window and door casings, chair rails, a replica horse stall, and furniture fabricated with dimensional pine salvaged from the mechanics barn. In addition, the horse stall boasts an original door and what once was wall cladding, is now a decorative element as bead board. The light fixtures are period reproductions made in America using traditional techniques that have gone by the wayside for over 60 years.
Below is the 'before' photo of both the first and second floors of the barn. We would like to thank the following partners for their work in making the above, 'after' photos a reality: RSA Architects, Etling Contracting, Tri-County Electric Service, Gellin Construction, Ruple Builders and, as always, Hans Noble Design.
