Our vision for the Xilo Barn was fueled with inspiration to design and build a simple, warm and rustic space to showcase all of our TRTimbers reclaimed wood designs.
We are proud to know that 95% of the Xilo Barn was built using recycled materials.
Using his mill, a chainsaw to make all the cuts and a handful of old tools, including a chisel and farmers level, Rick completed the barn in about 2 years. A variety of wood species at hand were used in the barn. The frame is a combination of spruce and pine. The floor, old sycamore and the siding, hemlock. Three decks are locust and the fourth deck is wide board old pine that Rick intentionally used, knowing it will continue to naturally weather and he will be able to pull it up for future reclaimed wood projects. The windows and doors were repurposed from an old 1890’s farmhouse in the Adirondacks.
Rick’s inherent knowledge of trees and wood can be seen and felt in every part of the barn. Nia’s vision to create the Xilo (Greek for wood) Barn offers a beautiful space to share green, sustainable, one-of-a-kind wood designs.
Completing the Barn has provided a sense of permanence, calm and hope in the year 2020. The Xilo Barn is a pure expression of our free spirit, raw handiwork and heart’s passion. It can provide a glimpse into our thoughts, in but a brief period of our time.
