GREEN BARN REMOVAL, Serving NE Indiana


ABOUT US

Green Barn Removal specializes in the removal/reclamation of vintage wooden barns and farm structures in NE Indiana. Our clients come to us when they require local professional help to improve their land and utilize it as they see fit.

THE RESTORATION OPTION

Before we discuss how we can help you with barn removal, please note that we believe barn owners should make every effort to protect and restore their historic barns whenever possible. If you would like to try and restore your barn, we are happy to refer you to qualified restoration consultants who can help you asses your barn and plan for restoration.

On the other hand, we also realize that some old barns simply must come down for a wide variety of legitimate reasons. If your barn must go, we can help.

GREEN REMOVAL

When the time comes to bring down an old barn, we are here to ensure that a proper deconstruction, or “green removal”, occurs instead of a wasteful destructive demolition. We take care of the proud old barns we work on to make sure each and every piece of beautiful vintage barn wood is gently removed and preserved for future generations to enjoy in many different forms.

HAND TOOLS / SMALL TEAMS

We utilize basic hand tools primarily, not huge construction equipment. We work with very small teams of field technicians, sometimes individually, not with large rushed crews. We take whatever time is required to get the job done properly and safely. We enjoy the intimate human connection to the old growth wood that most vintage barns are made of. Generally, such beautiful wood material no longer exists in modern construction. Touching the very same vintage materials originally crafted by our hard-working ancestors is a special experience that keeps us connected to the fascinating history and culture that came before us.

PASSION AND RESPECT

Our dedicated field technicians have a true passion and respect for vintage barns and their rich cultural history in Indiana. This respectful approach is reflected in how we treat our barn removal clients. We offer our clients a clear written contract in advance of the work which includes an important liability waiver that protects our clients no matter what occurs on the job site.

Our contract details exactly what work will be done during the job, how the work is handled, including safe work site practices, appropriate PPE (safety gear) for our field techs, and clean up details. Any questions are answered well in advance of the work and our contract can easily be customized based on specific client needs/concerns.

We consider ourselves your local “green partners” in preserving whatever can be reclaimed/repurposed from your barn and we greatly appreciate the opportunity to be of service to you and to our collective NE Indiana communities.

COMMUNITY SERVICE

Clearing the lovely NE Indiana landscape of dangerous and unsightly old barns and farm structures that can no longer stand safely is an important and necessary undertaking that we engage in very seriously. It is our goal to provide you with excellent professional service and a timely removal of your barn, while also preserving an important part of our American cultural heritage.

We approach our work as a community service that benefits all parties involved. We truly want to help you improve your land and we also want to see your barn live on in the hands of others who can really appreciate it and utilize the reclaimed materials in so many creative ways.

There is no substitute for holding a piece of history in your hand. Vintage barn wood, in whatever form it takes, offers that unique experience. It is as close as most modern people will ever get to a classic American farm and we must continue to cherish and share that cultural history however we possibly can.

Due to the growing national interest in reclaiming/repurposing building materials to preserve our dwindling natural resources, there is no excuse these days for allowing unwanted vintage barns and farm structures to end up torched in a burn pit or bulldozed into a landfill. It is beyond foolish to allow perfectly viable vintage wood to sit abandoned for decades until it literally rots into the ground. Destroying such recyclable building materials is simply not necessary anymore as there are easily accessible and affordable alternatives for barn owners. The "green removal" choice is the right choice today, and will someday become the only choice for future generations facing a critical lack of natural resources.

OUR BUSINESS MODEL

We work with barn owners in NE Indiana who desire a “green removal” done quickly, professionally, safely and with minimal waste. We keep our area of operations tightly focused by accepting only local jobs, within an hour or so of our home base, so our field technicians can sleep at home every night. We are not interested in long road trips or multi-state work sites. We also accept the less-than-desirable barn removal jobs that other barn reclamation companies may refuse to take on, such as those that offer minimal usable barn wood, fully collapsed, partially destroyed, dangerous liability risk, uninsurable, etc.

We are not so-called "pickers" seeking only certain species of wood, or high-end national wood wholesalers, we are a small, reliable, professional, local business that is here to serve our neighbor clients however we can. For us, no job is too small or too unworthy to deserve our very best reclamation efforts. All historic barns matter, regardless of their current condition. There is always something to reclaim/repurpose if you care enough to make it happen.

Due to our necessarily lean and efficient business model, we offer barn foundation removal on earth-fast structures only (loose stone, piers, dry stacked brick, wood foundations, etc.). For large excavated foundations, poured cement, masonry block, concrete, etc., we are happy to arrange alternate options for foundation removal upon request.

We salute you for seeking out a “green alternative” for your old Indiana barns and farm structures. We look forward to working with you soon.

Best regards,

Green Barn Removal

Great Service
by: C. Nies

My old barn had fallen down and I contacted James at Green barn removal. They were very professional with lots of communication which helped in the process. An all around great experience. They did what they said they were going to do without any surprises. It's reassuring to know companies like this are around to provide this service.

James provided impeccable service. Everything was done that he said would be done. Very professional. It was a pleasure working with him. It's good knowing that the barn that needed to be removed for safety reasons will live on.
