Good Wood Reborn - Upstate, SC

by Ted Flanders
(Sans Souci, SC)

We started out on this reclaiming adventure looking for old lumber to build a tree house playground. Our son (he is now 2.5 yrs old) loves climbing, jumping and running, as most boys do. Growing up in the country, my brothers, neighborhood friends and me had a 25 acre forest across the gravel road we lived on that was open for all of us to build and play in. We built tree forts, land forts and fox holes all over that land! My wife and I wanted to try to give a little of that same opportunity to our son. The playground plan includes 3 tree houses, 2 covered decks, a suspension bridge, a climbing wall, a zip line, a tire bridge, a floating deck and a bridge to connect the neighbors tree house (their son is 2).

So far we have reclaimed 5 barns and one home in the last 6 months. We have a crew of volunteers and a few that are on the "payroll". We have an LLC and all liability insurance covering anyone helping with the project. We are primarily in the upstate of South Carolina but are heading to NC to look at a tobacco farm and a family built barn in Columbus.

If you would like to join in our adventure, please contact me through phone, text or e-mail!

OLD HOUSE AND TWO BARNS
by: G. Mack

I have an old house, pre-1850, and two barns that are in various stages of disrepair that I would love to have you reclaim. They are in Saluda, SC (not the mountain town in NC), about 75 miles from Greenville. Would love to show you what I have. Email is best way to contact [email protected]
