_MG_0217Our goal at Barndogglers is to find, repurpose, and document the history of old barns and buildings. All the lonely, obsolete, and leaning barns scattered about the Midwest were once proud, strong, and useful barns.

The people associated with these barns have been the backbone of our society. They are the survivors of the great wars, the Depression, and the tumultuous 60’s. All barns have a story, each unique and having chapters of happiness and sorrow. Barndogglers believes it is important in this digital age to save and preserve not only the barn boards, but the barn stories for the next greatest generations.

We are five simple guys, who all grew up in the country, sometimes as kids working in the barns we are now reclaiming. We have all spent years in many of the different construction trades. However, the old saying that states, “You can take the boy out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the boy.” applies to all of us. We are excited to be back in the country, and we hope to share our experiences with all of you!_MG_0029

Remember, we might not be glamorous, but we can lift heavy things. And isn’t that the most important thing of all?
