WARNING: DON’T BUY A BARN DOOR TWICE

So once again we have a client who needs a replacement door.  Why?  the first door they bought was built from incorrect materials.  Now some of these (usually smaller doors) will be ok.  But the likelihood of a problem increases with the size of the door.  We do this every day and know how to… Continue Reading →

We promise good service

We had Tennessee Barn Doors make a custom door for our renovated bathroom last year. We worked with them to design the door and love the way it turned out.

I wanted a barn door to close off our bathroom from our master bedroom. It was a very large opening. We unexpectedly dropped by their shop and we were welcomed in.

Another bit about Reclaimed Wood

So we often get asked about reclaimed wood. We have written before about this but have some pictures of what is pretty typical of reclaimed. In a previous blog we talked about bugs, but here is a production issue. Many barns have things hanging in them over the years – rakes, tools, etc. And these… Continue Reading →

psssst want quiet?

ALL Tennessee Barn Doors include “quiet track”. We add a track to the bottom door groove that eliminates the “rubbing sound” other doors have. Yup, just another innovation from Tennessee Barn Doors.

Installing – “What studs…”

So we install 1000’s of doors. We get pretty good at it. So for our clients that are out of town who have local contractors (and some do-it-yourselfers) here is the how to do it. We supply a 1″x3″ board that is the same length as the track. We make this board at the time… Continue Reading →

We also build the door slightly taller than the trim. This is because our doors are… Continue Reading →
