Once you’ve decided to buy that wonderful timber frame barn home from Yankee Barn Homes, or if you’re looking to add barn style elements to your home, Post and Beam Living has put together 6 “must know” resources just for you.
#1. Barn Door Hardware This site is perfect for those looking for “the real deal”. Authentic barn door hardware, sliding, flat track and many others may all be found here.
#2. The Sliding Door Company This site is for the people who love the look of the contemporary interior sliding or swinging glass doors. From room dividers to shower areas, they’ve got you covered.
#3. Barn Light Electric Again, authentic is the key word for this interior and exterior lighting website. From the original goose neck light to porcelain barn lights to vintage industrial lighting, this site has all of these and many more. Great feature; this company allows you customize just about any light to your needs and specifications.
#4. Van Dyke’s Restorers This company’s tag line is “Your Restoration Project Partner” and they mean it! Hardware for both interior and exterior doors, windows, and cabinets is just the beginning. Corbels, columns, gorgeous molding, library ladder components, register vents and grilles, and period kitchen appliances are also found here. This site is one of my personal favorites! #5. Sung Cottage Hardware If you’re looking for both great looking and hard-working hardware, you’ll find it here. Hinges, latches and barn door hangers are offered, as is hardware for PVC and vinyl fencing and gates. Need landscape chain? This site has you covered.
#6. Big Ass Fans Okay, I understand the name of this company might give some pause for concern, but come on, I’ll bet there isn’t one person who reads the name and doesn’t immediately know what this company sells. Once you get past the name to look at their products, you discover these fans are not only functional, they are works of art! Barn home owners often have open and/or lofted space in need of air circulation. These fans can do it in near silence and great beauty. Again, customizing in all sorts of styles and looks is possible.
