A Lil' Bit About Us

How it all began

Randy Smith ( Owner ):  In 1998, on a motorcycle ride to Morgan county, Randy happened across the vacant Stockport Mill entirely by chance. Two years and a lot of hard work later, the Mill was completely restored into a bed and breakfast, the Stockport Mill Inn. It is still operating today, and subconsciously jump-started the events that encouraged Randy into a new career.

Before the Barns: Before entering the barn salvage business full-time, Randy owned a commercial roofing company for 25 years. From 2004 until 2013, Randy was Vice President of a large commercial roofing company in Columbus, Ohio. On weekends, Randy spent his time taking down barns.

A Full-Time Career: Since starting full-time in 2011, the Ohio Valley Barn Salvage crew have dismantled over 150 barns and log cabins in central Ohio. We have many satisfied clients. Let Ohio Valley Barn Salvage carefully dismantle, reclaim, and re-purpose your family heirloom!
