Make Your Garage Great Again!

Amish furniture nj

Hand built. Made to last. Produced in America.
Is a time when many seem to be questioning the location of where things are from, it might be a good time to return to handmade American quality built items. And in a time when some are questioning the origin of what they buy for the very first time, it is no surprise that some American homemade classics are being rediscovered.
Amish furniture and Amish built garages are some of the items that people are talking about. Everything from board and batten sheds to custom gazebos that are handmade from high quality materials are enjoying their day in the limelight as politicians across the country profess their allegiance to American made products.
Amish furniture, for example, first gained attention in the 1920s. It was a the this time that early American folk art was “discovered.” Because of the beauty and quality of the pieces, furniture dealers and historians in the 1920s began placing great value upon the beauty and quality of these traditional pieces. And while it may have been the furniture in the 1920s that was catching the attention of the interior designers, the historians were also focusing the exterior accomplishments of the Amish as well. By definition, 100% of Amish furniture is hand-crafted, but the art and tradition of handmade garages has an even more significant place in history.
Amish Barn Building is a Tradition That Continues
The traditional barn raising for the new family or farmer who needed a little help is the stuff that legends are made of. From literature to history books, writers have recorded the century old tradition of neighbors helping neighbors construct a classically crafted out building that could last for centuries. And while fewer and fewer Americans live on properties the size that need full size barns, many Americans still desire sheds and and garages built from hand with American made products.
If a building is truly built from hand tools like Amish built garages, consumers expect a certain level of quality. Amish built garages, for example, may serve a utilitarian purpose, but the attention to quality and detail is as more of an art than an industry.
What Kind of Out Buildings Do You Wish Your Property Had?
Whether you are looking to purchase an Amish built garage or a corner shed, Americans find many uses for outdoor buildings on their properties. Here are some of the most common:
Garages Many Americans typically thing of these structures as something that is either attached or detached from their home. For different families, a garage means different things. For some young sons and daughters, for instance, the garage is where they worked with their father or mother to learn to build their first birdhouse, complete their first oil change. Although some garages may be empty shells that simply provide a place for cars to park, other garages are heated and air conditioned, have running water, and serve as a gathering place for graduation parties and summer cookouts. Amish built garages can provide the basis for a variety of different functions. The decision to add an extra garage for lawn care items can be a decision to make sure that your vehicles remain scratch free from wear and tear.
Gazebos Right of the kitchen or nestled into the corner of the backyard, a gazebo can serve as a place for family meals, quiet afternoon naps, or reading nooks. A handcrafted Amish built gazebo, like many of these products, is often built from oak, cherry, hickory, walnut, or maple. Painted or stained these gathering places can provide years of shade, comfort, and quiet.
Storage Sheds WHile garages may serve their greatest purpose protecting cars, a shed can be a warehouse for a variety of other items. Gardening tools, large lawn equipment fill some sheds, while others are used for man caves, pool houses, or crafting centers. The beauty of a shed is that when you are done, you can close the door and return to your main house, storing away occasionally used pieces of equipment or painted items that need to dry.
Lately, it seems pretty American to be a collector of things. Those things we all collect, however, need a quality place to be stored.
