Complete Building Frame Kits
For nearly fifteen years, we’ve been deconstructing buildings in New York State and across New England. During that time, we’ve salvaged materials from thousands of buildings. We’ve completely dismantled hundreds of structures – barns, houses, garages, warehouses and other commercial buildings. We’ve seen a lot of buildings and we’ve diverted many tons of material from landfills.
Our work is often bittersweet. Though we’re passionate about reclaiming materials for future use, our process almost always means the end of a chapter in the life of a building. Though its pieces and parts will share their stories with generations that follow, the building in its totality is forever altered or lost.
Every Building We Dismantle Has A Story
We do our best to capture these stories so they can be shared with our customers and passed along as the building becomes a table or a mantel or flooring or siding, part of a new structure or an accessory for a new project. These stories inspire our work and challenge us to work harder, save more, and preserve each building’s unique history for our collective future.
Instead of salvaging and selling off the building’s parts, as we’ve done with so many buildings before, we carefully dismantled this one, cataloged its parts, and have now stored the entire structure in its totality. We believe this building is unique, so it deserves a special site and an opportunity for another life as a complete structure.
With every building we dismantle as a complete building kit, we ask ourselves “What will be its future? Will it become a brewery or pub, restaurant or cafe, museum or community destination?”
Whatever its future, its new inhabitants will have an opportunity to experience and admire Nineteenth Century innovation and architecture. Each building part, from uniquely crafted wood trusses and beams, distinguished brackets, joists, often doors and windows, will share the stories of the building’s past, while bringing a unique, warm aesthetic that will comfort every person who passes through its doors in the future.
