Frequently Asked Questions

Where does your wood come from?

Our reclaimed wood is carefully selected from centuries old barns across Pennsylvania and other northeast states. At Antique Building Solutions, we disassemble each barn meticulously by hand to ensure that only the best beams and lumber are placed into contemporary homes, builds, and construction projects.

What is the cost of the wood?

Antique Building Solutions will work with any budget. Our prices vary depending on the type of wood selected, the scale of the project, and whether additional services like finishing, sealing, or installation with one of our trusted partners are desired.

Do you deliver, and, if so, what's it cost?

We offer an extensive delivery service across Pennsylvania and nearby locations in the northeast. The cost is $3 one way per mile.

Do you ship, and, if so, what's it cost?

We are able to ship materials across the United States. Shipping costs vary depending on desired arrival time as well as the weight and size of the materials to be shipped.

What types of beams do you have?

Our selection of barn beams includes pine, oak, and other species frequently available in our large inventory.

Our hand-hewn beams are the most popular, but we also offer circular saw finished beams. For construction projects in which structural issues are a concern, we offer box beams from 1" hand-crafted skins.

I am a builder, how do I order from you?

Free estimates are available upon request through our online estimate form. You may also call us at 814.482.0800 to discuss your project in person. If you are a local builder, you might also visit our showroom in Howard, PA.

Do you buy barns?

Buying barns is central to our business. Visit "We Buy Barns" for more information.

Do you build furniture?

We do not build furniture, but we have a list of trusted partners who may help with the building of cabinetry and other construction projects.

Can you supply enough wood for an entire home?

We have one of the largest inventories of reclaimed wood in central Pennsylvania. At any given time, Antique Building Solutions has over 10,000 board feet of lumber available for sale. Our inventory is a mix of dimensional lumber, original face lumber, and milled materials for paneling and flooring. Because reclaimed lumber will only be used in select areas of a home, we are almost always able to supply enough wood for any given home's construction needs.

Do you have samples? If so, how can I get them?

We provide free samples of flooring and paneling so that you can evaluate which materials, colors, and textures are right for your design project. To request a sample, check the "sample" box when you place a request for a free estimate or call us at 814.482.0800.

We are happy to discuss shipping samples to your door, or you may drop by the showroom to pick up samples in person if you are a local customer.

Can I make an appointment at the local showroom?

Absolutely! Use our online contact form or call us 814.482.0800.

We would love to talk with you in person any Monday thru Friday during business hours.

Do you install flooring?

Antique Building Solutions works with trusted partners to install flooring into homes, builds, and other construction projects.
