Joe DePra has a kindred passion for woodwork & the preservation of premium aged barn timber. Despite the rising value of barn wood, many historic barns in the Great Midwest are being demolished or burned down altogether. After observing this carelessness, Joe became determined to reclaim these exceptionally beautiful & time proven materials to give them new life. Rustic Indiana was born. We preserve the wood from taking down these old barns, supply reclaimed barn wood to others who wish to repurpose and give it new life, and build custom furniture and home renovation projects using this beautiful salvaged barn wood. Please check out the Gallery page for examples of the custom work we offer. Contact us for your next project!
