The INTEGRITY That Produces Lasting Products

Why is Bark House the only company that has always graded and manufactured 100% of our products including our renowned bark siding in-house?

Unlike wood, bark is a unique material without set national industry standards. Bark House invested 5 years of research and development understanding the dynamics that are required for material performance before introducing this material to the market. From this body of work, we created the first ever grading and manufacturing standards.  They are used by our in-house craftsmen exclusively.

Proprietary standards in product design led to the company earning the Architectural Record Product of the Year and being a John Ruskin Prize Finalist.

Bark House Standards = Products That Last

UNCOMPROMISING Design, Beautiful Results

Bark House has an uncompromising commitment to nature that drives our manufacturing methods and results in beautiful products that connect people to the forest. With more than 30-years of innovation and manufacturing excellence, Bark House is the original design-manufacturer of bark siding and bark wall finishes and has earned the reputation as “the uncompromising brand in natural wall finishes”.

This commitment led to the company earning The World’s First Cradle to Cradle PLATINUM Product Certification and being a B-Corp Best for the World Company.

REGENERATIVE Process Adds Greater Value

Regenerative Design encompasses an emerging field of dedicated practitioners who aim to change the way that humans inhabit the earth. RD is a core aspect of how a company does business, not an add-on program. For Bark House, that commitment means elevating the regenerative capacity of the Appalachian Forest. Our work has involved designing bark siding and wall panels, as well as developing new manufacturing methods.  We work toward a system that benefits the forest alongside the forest community.

This body of work led to the company receiving the Carol Sanford Institute Regenerative Design Award and being a Buckminster Fuller Institute Catalyst Company

“The Uncompromising,Quality Brand In Natural Wall Finishes” For Well-Known Tech, Fashion And Hospitality Industries.

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 Louis Stevenson
