Welcome to the Bark House, The Original Designer-Manufacturer of Poplar Bark Shingle Siding and Bark Wall Panels.

Bark House was founded in 1990 to demonstrate what a business system could mean for the human spirit when following the wisdom of the forest by partnering with the land. Ours would be a regenerative manufacturing process, in contrast to contemporary extractive business practices.

Careful manufacturing and proprietary grading protect the pristine characteristics of the bark so its unique attributes can be celebrated int eh built environment. Thoughtful business practices build new capacity. From source, through manufacturing and installation, back to clean soil – the function of bark is elevated to adorn walls outside and within.
