NJ business repurposes old wood from state

One New Jersey business is rescuing and repurposing wood found from the state's forests and farms.



Real Antique Wood was formed five years ago in Irvington and reuses old wood for new projects.



Owner Gary Horvath says some of the wood they use is from barns and buildings more than a century old.



"The beauty of this old wood, we're not going to get it anymore," Horvath says. 



One of Horvath's most recent projects was the Barrow House, a new restaurant in Clifton, which opened in October. 



Owner and designer Dean Maroulakos also transformed the interior of one of the city's last farmhouses, which dates back to the 1890s.
