Highland Craftsmen was co-founded in 1990 by North Carolina natives, Marty and Christie McCurry.  We are ever inspired by nature’s design and our work celebrates RAW™ (Reclaimed Appalachian Wood Waste) materials.  With a new industry, jobs were created that fit both the culture and the economy of this community, and we take pride in knowing that what we do has a low impact on the environment.  The Bark House® brand bark shingles, bark panels and bark wall coverings are beautiful and lasting. Our exterior poplar siding is created to last 80 years with zero maintenance; no paints, no stains, and no sealants – ever. The bark that once protected trees from fire, insects and other elements can now protect us.  We honor the environment through thoughtful management, procurement, and refinement.  We honor people by maintaining a proud heritage of quality workmanship.  We build prosperity in our community.  Highland Craftsmen Inc has earned a rare spot on the B Corp Best for the World List, which recognizes companies that create the most impact for a better world – both for their community and for the environment. With a methodology that celebrates pure nature, we look forward to many more years of striving for positive social and environmental impact while continuing to hand-craft the finest architectural products for our discerning clients worldwide.

Beautiful Outside and Within

It is not so much for its beauty that the forest
makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something,
that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so
wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.

Robert Lewis Stevenson
