“Reclaimed lumber is a big thing these days,” says Mike Daley between trips up a ladder pulling clapboard off the front of a timber frame barn on Mountain Road. The barn is on property recently sold by Destiny Christian Church in April and does not fit into plans for the site by developer L.J.J. Realty. The beams, posts and siding will be turned into a garage for Bread and Chocolate owner Franz Andlinger , who bought the structure, and furniture made by Daley.
