Everitt and Schillings reclaimed barn wood tiles are perfect for homeowners who are looking for renovation project. The installation of these wood tiles are simple, do not require any tools and can be done in a single day. Once you receive your boxes of tiles, we recommend you mix them up randomly so your size and colors create a non uniform look. You may want to create a staging area, where you have flipped over all the tiles so the backs are facing up, so you can apply a liberal amount of poly urethane based construction adhesive to each piece.
To begin your installation, you will want to start with a cut or a full tile and create a level first row that you can build on. We recommend a offset brick pattern where you center the top tile tile over the joint line of the below row. Throughout the rows try to mix the grain of each tile so that they are horizontal, vertical and horizontal, etc all the way across the row. Continue this process for each row until your wall is complete.

Everitt & Schilling Co. is a Colorado based company whose mission is to travel the rugged plains and mountains of the American West looking for old barns that show the character and history of our country.
The current collection of tiles are from a bees wax finished barn in the rugged plains of Wyoming, and has the beautiful color of honey and black over tones from the harsh exposure to the Laramie wind and western winters. Build near the turn of the century, this barn has stood the test of time and stands in the long heritage of rugged individualism and frontier character. The life of a working ranch is evident in every grain in this Laramie 1886 reclaimed tile. Our designers and craftsman are always on the hunt for interesting materials that can be repurposed to bring out new beauty in a tired material. We spend our efforts on finding old barns and beams to help create the most interesting and unique look available in wood tiles anywhere. Each of our tiles are named for the area it was taken from and from the location it was found. they are limited quantities and totally one of a kind providing you with a link to heritage and history no one else will have.
