A local favorite that you may not believe was an old Kentucky Fried Chicken. We worked with the vision of owner Rhienna Trevino, and created the custom bar, beam wraps, hostess stand and entry way partition along with pub tables, a mantel, custom menu holders and whisky tasters.
Longtime Heritage friends Jeff and Alanna Harbeck contracted us to provide barn wood wall cladding and shelving for a recent kitchen install.
Basement Renovation / Burlington, WI
Mark and Dawn commissioned Heritage to turn their basement into a veritable speakeasy complete with authentic barn wood wall cladding and a permanent home for the notorious super bar.
Lake Home / Delavan, WI
This home was custom built to be a welcome landing spot for family. Choice Heritage pieces include the “Viking Picnic Table”, a custom banquette, office desktop, bedroom wall cladding, and basement mantel.
For this Premier Home constructed in Williams Bay, Heritage milled and installed a mixed hardwood floor of 4”, 5”, 6”, and 7” slats with a standard finish. Heritage also provided wall cladding material, a mantel, and an interior post.
Entryway / Mukwonago, WI
This custom sliding entry way barn door beckons all visitors to open it and see what they may find.
Coyote Canyon / Eagle, WI
Heritage was brought in to update and renovate this southwestern themed local spot in Eagle, WI. We used reclaimed wood to change the dining aesthetic of the place.
How can we ever pick the top 10 out of all the amazing things that have happened in 2018? We have loved every moment (almost!), and here are a few unique jobs and happenings that made 2018 shine a little brighter than we expected.
It’s a Heritage Holiday and we’ve been ringing it in with a game night and an Italian feast! At Heritage, our team isn’t just a team, it’s a family, so we decided to do what families do when they get together: hang out, play games, and eat. Check, check, and check some more. Starting early Saturday evening we enjoyed our new digs at Heritage North with bevvys and snacks followed by competitive games complete with prizes and a little bit of gloating. Afterwards we jingled all the way to a fancy dinner out.
A tough guy butler opens the massive front door ushering us into a cozy office. “Whaddaya say?” he inquires, asking us to declare our secret entry phrase. We chanted, “This tomato gave me the icy mitt at the petting factory.” We’re then allowed clandestine passage down to a secret round wine room encased in beautiful aged wood crowned with brick.
Not so very long ago, yours truly (Heritage Beam and Board) had the honor of being featured in At The Lake, a glossy publication serving the Lake Geneva area. Our team took a a quick time out from the hard work of custom crafting old growth barn wood to introduce the nice magazine folks to our little shop of fun. These are some of the pics that didn't make it in the article, and we thought we'd share them here.
Six years ago, a few friends had a little dream. They thought they’d take down a few barns, make some really cool custom furniture, and call it a small side project. What they didn’t know was how much they were going to dig that little dream, and how much people loved well-crafted custom pieces.
Inspiration happens from whatever speaks to our hearts, our souls, and our minds. The artistic bent in us lights up and turns to use that inspiration to create beauty and art. Our customers have been inspired by so many things, and this time it was Melville's monster of a novel: Moby-Dick.
At Heritage we're all about our team. Nothing here could happen without all of us working together toward the common goal of giving antique materials new life, and to have as much fun as we can doing just that.
Sometimes we folks at Heritage make something really special that, frankly, we'd like to hang on to for a spell. This particular piece got its start when it dawned on us that we had only a few boards from the Lansky structure left and wanted to craft something truly unique with those materials. The Lansky wood has a killer gangster history (the wood came from a secret hideout of famous gangster Meyer Lansky) so we thought long and hard about how to use the last of what we had around.
