About

Sharing our story of Barn XO | Help us Pay it Forward

My name is Kyle Nied and I have an older brother named Nick. Our business, “Barn XO”, was born out of a desperate situation. A couple years ago, Nick got very sick and found out that he would eventually need a kidney transplant. My mom and the rest of our family became very proactive in finding my brother a kidney.

We knew that the only way my brother was going to get a kidney and have a chance at survival was to find a donor. We discovered that I could help my brother through the “UW Transplant Program” at the Health University of Wisconsin.

As Nick’s condition progressed, I looked for a way to get his mind off of things. We happened to meet some farmers who talked about old barns that they needed to have torn down. I saw an opportunity to reclaim this wood and give it new life and purpose. Together, we developed our craft by creating unique pieces of furniture using this reclaimed wood.

We started with a load of wood from the farmers and used it to build a table and bench for our mom. We then took pictures and created listings on “Craig’s List” and orders started flying in.

On January 8, 2015 my brother received a kidney from a donor in San Francisco and I donated one of my kidneys to a person in West Virginia. I do not know how my parents made it through that day, having both of their sons in surgery. Our transplant chain was the largest chain in the world with 35 pairs, helping 70 people with kidney donations. In April, our story was aired on Channel 5 ABC World News.

We are both doing great and are back in the swing of giving new life to each piece of furniture we build. We both feel so blessed that we are donating $5.00 of our proceeds to the “Kidney Foundation” for each piece we build. Join us in helping create new life with each piece of wood we acquire and help us to “pay it forward”.


Kindest Regards,
Kyle and Nick Nied

These are examples of character marks that can appear in reclaimed lumber: mineral staining, color changes, species changes, weathering, discoloration and staining, rough-sawn, cracking, nail holes, loose knots, tool marks, dents, thickness variations, splitting, and mixed grain patterns.We strongly urge you to view all or our Goods available on the Website to familiarize and understand this variation.

Shipping
Shipment and Delivery. Unless expressly agreed to by the parties in writing, Barn XO shall select the method of shipment of, and the carrier for, the Goods. Barn XO may, in its sole discretion, without liability or penalty, make partial shipments of Goods to you. Most orders ship via UPS across the United States in 1-4 business days with no signature required. Please Note that we do not send our packages "signature required". If you would like this option, please let us know in advance when your order is placed. Sometimes, even though we ship signature not required, the UPS driver has the right to leave a call tag instead of the package if they do not feel comfortable leaving the package. Please be aware that orders only ship on business days; we do not offer weekend or holiday delivery. Larger items such as tables and desks often ship via a freight carrier in 3-7 days. You will also receive tracking and phone call from the freight carrier to schedule delivery. The freight carrier drops the crate off curbside and requires a signature. If you have ordered something that is coming via freight carrier please make sure to find a friend or two to help you carry your furniture up to your apartment or home. White glove delivery is available if you must have it for a price increase but you must contact us to set this up and pay the additional charge which is typically several hundred dollars more for this service. Please contact us at info [!at] barnxo.com for more information on the shipment option for your Order.Delivery dates are estimates and are subject to change.

Lead times. Small items such as console tables, benches, bar stools and small desks typically ship within 1-2 weeks or sooner. Coffee tables, small tables and desks ship in approx 3-4 weeks. Dining tables larger than 60" ship in approx. 5 weeks. The typical lead time for custom orders is 4-8 weeks.

Late Delivery. Any time quoted by Barn XO for delivery is an estimate only. Barn XO is not liable for or in respect of any loss or damage arising from any delay in filling any order, failure to deliver or delay in delivery. No delay in the shipment or delivery of any Goods relieves you of your obligations under these Terms, including without limitation payment for the Goods.

Inspection.
Receiving Your Freight Shipment. (Does not apply if your order is able to be shipped UPS) Please make sure you have help to bring your crate inside. Your Freight shipment will be secured in a crate with protective packaging, and high-grade straps to help prevent damage during transit. The shipment will arrive on a semi-truck.The semi-truck will have a lift-gate to bring the crate to ground level. Be sure to inspect the outside of the crate for damage with extra scrutiny. Do not sign for the shipment if the crate looks damaged. When you sign the driver’s delivery receipt, you are acknowledging receipt of all products in good order.

Buyer shall inspect the Goods upon delivery and notify Barn XO within 3 days of receipt ("Inspection Period") if any Goods are damaged or incomplete. Buyer will be deemed to have accepted the Goods unless Buyer notifies Barn XO in writing of any damaged or incomplete Goods during the Inspection Period and furnishes such written evidence or other documentation as required by Barn XO. If Buyer timely notifies us of any damaged or incomplete Goods, we will work to fix or replace such Goods at no cost to you.

White Glove Delivery:
White glove delivery and shipping typically ranges from $300-500 total. For "White Glove" delivery, the carrier will only bring it inside your apartment, un-package it for you and remove the shipping materials and crate. This needs to be set up in advance.

Shipping outside the continental 48 States:

Currently we ship to Canada but it requires additional charges to ship. Please convo before you order or expect that we will be contacting you to pay the additional charges after purchase if you are requesting Canada delivery. The same goes for Alaska and Hawaii.

CARE & MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS

We use reclaimed wood not only because it is a sustainable material, but reclaimed wood has extraordinary patinas, grains, character marks and colors. Small nail holes, cracks, splits and old joints give testament to this rich history. Our products have a simple natural finish applied to keep the product looking and feeling as natural as possible. Any spills, stains, little nicks and scratches do blend in and add to the overall character of the wood, especially the case with dining room or kitchen tables. There are simple things you can do to keep your reclaimed wood furniture looking great year after year.

PREVENT WATER STAINS

Immediately wipe the entire surface of the furniture equally with a wet cloth(including dry areas). Next, use a dry cloth over the entire surface to absorb water. Use coasters or placemats underneath drinking glasses or coffee cups to prevent water rings from forming.

AVOID DIRECT SUNLIGHT

Strong constant sunshine can sometimes change the color of wood from original soft, honey browns to more of a sliver grey color pallet. If you would like to prevent this, simply use curtains or blinds to regulate sun exposure.

STABLE TEMPERATURE

Reclaimed wood furniture should be kept a safe distance from direct heat sources such as fireplaces, heaters, radiators or other high heat sources as the wood can dry out and cause cracks. A temperate and stable environment is best.

PREVENT HEAT SPOTS

Even though reclaimed wood is remarkably heat resistant, hot plates and pans from the oven should have heat pads or trivets underneath as protection to prevent heat spots.

MAINTENANCE

Regular dusting with a soft cloth is recommended. A slightly damp lint-free microfiber cloth can be used to wipe down the reclaimed wood furniture. Make sure the cloth is consistently turned in on itself to make sure dirt is removed not just moved around.

Avoid the use of furniture polish because it leads to a buildup of residue that attracts dust. The furniture will have shallow cracks into which crumbs can fall. Simply using a brush (small paintbrush works best) to extract the crumbs can easily solve this problem.

Each piece is unique since it is made by reclaimed lumber. Expect variations from photos and within complete package. Any variation or defect is acceptable with reclaimed lumber if the product is structurally stable. These are examples of character marks that can appear in reclaimed lumber: mineral staining, color changes, species changes, weathering, discoloration and staining, rough-sawn, cracking, nail holes, loose knots, tool marks, dents, thickness variations, splitting, and mixed grain patterns. If a customer has specific standards for items such as color or texture of wood, those standards need to be very clearly put in writing in advance.
