Roger Brabant of Rigaud relaxes inside a disassembled barn as he works to reclaim some of the wooden beams and planks Monday, October 27, 2014.
Known in the area as Roger “Barnwood” Brabant, he has spent the last 20 years dismantling old barns from local farms, recuperating the aged wood they’re made of and either selling it as is or turning it into furniture. Montreal café and bar owners, especially Irish pubs, have become popular clientele, condo owners and designers as well.

Rhinebeck Jewish Center is getting a cheerful new green home that will be upcycled from a historic barn. Designed by Yeshaya Shor, the new synagogue will recycle wood salvaged from an existing barn, giving it new life in a community center. Coupled with green technology such as rainwater collection and passive heating and cooling, the new building will be a welcoming and green place of prayer.

Then my inlaws were visiting, which gave me some spare time and access to my father in law to help with a project for the house – a ladder shelf from wood we reclaimed from the demolition of our old garage.
It took three days’ nap times to finish, but it ended up coming out pretty much exactly as I’d hoped. I was limited to the lumber we had available, so the top three shelves are 2″ thick and 8″ deep and the bottom two are 1″ thick and 10″ deep. I had to rip a piece of lumber in half for the side rails.
