We hope that you doing well and that you are enjoying the lovely days of fall. About this time last year, our teams began talking about revamping our website. We decided to work with Sharp Innovations on creating this beautifully crafted, easy to browse new website that you are on today. When we began talks with Sharp about the content that we wanted on our new site, one new item that we desired was a compelling video to explain the unique product that we create here at Sylvan Brandt and what it will bring to your home. We were reffered to Cap Collective to help us achieve this important new feature.
We reached out to a longtime, loyal customer who has our Weatherboard flooring throughout her gorgeous home in Berwyn, PA and she graciously agreed to allow us to takeover her home for a day of filming. (Sidenote: this is the second time this customer has invited us into her home. Here’s some pictures from the first time!) With actors in tow, Cap Collective came to the house with the intentions of capturing a family naturally living in the warmth of a home filled with the rich history of reclaimed wood. The beauty of reclaimed wood is that you are bringing nature into your home through historic wood that was used by early Americans to build this hardworking nation that we’re apart of. That’s what we offer and that’s that we wanted to convey through this video. We’re so appreciative of Cap Collective for their handiwork and expertise at crafting this video for us, the actors for doing a great job looking like a cute family, and our customer who willingly opened their home to us…for the second time!
We’d love to here your feedback. Enjoy the video and PLEASE SHARE!
Hello Fall! This past week we welcomed the cooler temps with open arms here at Sylvan Brandt. While, of course, every season is special, there’s just something to be said about putting on comfy clothes, sipping warm drinks, and spending time outside in the fall season. So grab your favorite coffee, latte, or if you’re a wanna-be specialty drinker like me, your hot cocoa and snuggle up as we dive into what we’re up to at Sylvan Brandt!
– Dates To Keep In Mind –
- Friday & Saturday, October 14th – While we will still be open, we will have very limited service due to the fact that the office and mill will be manned by just 1 person for this day only. Feel free to ask us any questions regarding service on this day.

- Friday & Saturday, November 10th & 11th – Come celebrate Veterans Day with us as we offer 10% off to all active and retired military!
- Thursday, November 23rd – THANKSGIVING! We will be closed.
Sliding Barn Doors Are In!
If you haven’t heard, old fashioned sliding barn doors are trending right now. We’ve been making them for the past 2 years and would be honored to build you one! A few months ago we finished a double-thickness, with built in Z bar for a family’s new front door, and just this past week completed our latest interior, sliding barn door with the X design. Check it out!
Christmas Is Only 79 Days Away!
Christmas is closer then we’d think, but have no fear! We’ve got the signage to show your cheer! (Sorry, my rhyming isn’t up to par)
October is shaping up to be a BUSY month for us here at Sylvan Brandt and we are so grateful. We have new vendors moving into the Antiques Loft, 3 tables and one full kitchen countertop to build, along with 2,500+ square feet of flooring to make. In the same way that we feel blessed, we pray that you will experience a time of blessing in this season of thanksgiving.
Stay tuned! Next time on the blog we will reveal our company commercial that we’ve been working on! 🙂
Thanks for following along!
Hello friends! We’re so sorry that we’ve been silent for so long. Through personnel changes, websites changes, and being busy, busy, busy with orders we’ve let this blog slip. Please forgive us! So I, Tyler (Heyyyy!), thought that it would be appropriate to take this time to catch you up on all of the exciting projects that we’ve been involved in recently. Buckle up! It’s about to get CRAZY!
So we’re in the middle of September and the last time we posted was back in February! Oh my…a lot has happened since then, but I’ll try to simply highlight a few key projects.
Well, if you’ve never been to our site before you would’t know it, but this gorgeous site that you’re on is BRAND NEW. We spent a few months working with Sharp Innovations on a complete overhaul of our website. On May 26th, 2017 we launched the new site and have received great feedback so far. We would love for you to browse the site and give us any feedback…just keep your negative comments to yourself 😉 Just Kidding, we would appreciate ALL feedback as a way of improving our service to you!
LCS GALA & AUCTION
In our last blog post back in February, we mentioned that we were donating a coffee table that we made from Reclaimed White Pine barn floor planks and roof rafters to the annual Lititz Christian School Gala and Auction that took place at the beautiful Brick Gables banquet facility here in Lititz, PA. The Brandt family has many connections to LCS so this event and school are dear to us. The night is designed as a fun, yet elegant way to help raise funds for the school. Items that were up for bid included a private flight to the Chesapeake Bay area, gifts baskets from Waltz Vineyards, a coffee and pastry party for the teachers, etc. I can’t remember the exact amount it raised, but the coffee table that we made (pictured below) raised around $1,100!
READY, SET, ACTION!
In addition to our new site, we spent a day with Cap Collective, a media production company based out of Harrisburg, PA, at one of our loyal customer’s house in Berwyn, PA. The goal of the day was to create a 30-60 second commercial for our business that we could add to our new website as well as use in advertising areas like movie theaters. While the video is basically done being edited, there are a few slight changes that are still in-process so stay tuned! We can’t wait to share it with you!
RECLAIMED KITCHEN? YES, PLEASE.
Ok, so you’ve got your beautiful reclaimed flooring full of rich history and character, but what about the cabinets in your home? Well, if you haven’t heard, we’ve been working with K&H Cabinet Company to create a line of reclaimed custom cabinetry. The MULTIPLE samples that they’ve made are breathtakingly beautiful and we finally have our vary own display area in our showroom!
K&H is about to embark on the first full reclaimed kitchen just like the cabinet pictured above, which is made from Oak Weatherboard (oak brown board/siding). The kitchen will only be installed later this year, so you’ll have to stick around to see the finished product 😉
TABLES, FLOORING, AND MORE TABLES!
I’ll conclude with this; we’ve been very busy this summer and feel so blessed to be a thriving reclaimed flooring mill in such a niche market. While flooring has always been our key product and still is, our table division has been exploding! So below I’m simply going to post a myriad of pictures of various projects that we’ve done this summer, both flooring and tables/countertops. Enjoy!
Ok, so hopefully that gets you up to speed on where we’re at. If you ever have any questions please email us at email@example.com.
