Patchwork went to scope out the disassembled Hafner’s Barn at the corner of Taft Rd. and Buckley Rd. that was deconstructed by Buffalo Reuse. They have pallets, and pallets, and pallets of deconstructed building materials that are up for sale if you are interested. To get a better look at what is available go to D-Build’s website. These guys have some really beautiful material out there and it’s just waiting for a new owner to bring it home and create something out of it. I know that’s exactly what we’re doing here at Patchwork! We bought about 55 linear board feet of red oak hardwood and it has the most beautiful patina and historical features to it (old sawmill circular saw textures). Very soon it will be cut down and used on a 5′x5′ table along with some steel we managed to salvage from the demolition/deconstruction of the Manley Field House on Syracuse Campus.
If you know anyone that might be interested in a DIY project or any other project that could potentially reuse harvested wood from this barn, please contact the guys at D-Build
