Since 1995, Carlson's Barnwood Company has helped homeowners, architects, designers, and contractors find the perfect solution to their unique building and decorating needs. Whether it's barn wood, tin, salvaged building materials, antiques, nostalgic decor and design, or antique wood flooring you need, we can help!

Carlson's Barnwood Company, located in rural Cambridge, Illinois, has been supplying architects, homebuilders, commercial and home owners, and designers with quality antique building materials for many years. As Carlson's Barnwood's reputation as a leading supplier of barnwood, antique flooring and beams has spread throughout the U.S. and Canada, the business has continued to grow every year. Currently, one of the major suppliers of antique building materials, Carlson's Barnwood Company is still family owned and operated. Prompt, courteous service, along with quality products, has helped Carlson's gain a solid reputation as antique lumber suppliers.

Because Carlson's is family owned and located on the family farm in central Illinois, the company has been able to keep its materials and shipping costs down. Reasonable prices, however, does not mean inferior products. Carlson's make every effort to ship out superior antique lumber that has been trimmed, denailed, cleaned, and kept dry. Barnwood is housed inside or tarped carefully outside, as well as tarped or plastic wrapped during shipping.

"Wet wood is one of my major pet peeves," said Jim Carlson, co-owner of Carlson's Barnwood Company with his wife, Lanette. "Nothing will rot faster than wet wood, and we take every effort to make sure that you receive dry lumber at your building site."

Remilled antique flooring was added to the Carlson's Barnwood product line five years ago. Offered are antique wide plank pine barnwood flooring, antique distressed oak, wide plank heartpine and wide plank southern yellow pine. All are quality, special order floors, with special attention paid to customers' ideas and preferences. Whether it's a smooth finish you want or a skip-planed rougher surface, Carlson's can manufacture your floor the way you want it!

So if you are in the market for antique barn beams, barnwood, or antique flooring, give Carlson's Barnwood Company a call. The friendly staff will be happy to go over your ideas for that special project or your dreams for that new home!
