Exploring Your Own Backyard

Relish in Your Outdoor Space With New Goods from Twin Oak Barns

Sometimes the best form of exploration is that of your own backyard. Yes, we literally mean your property's outdoor space. Whether you have a finely manicured lawn or a pool and patio situation, summer is the perfect season to spend time soaking up some sunshine and appreciating Mother Nature. 

In order to do so, consider making your outdoor space an extension of your home so that you look forward to spending time there. Whether that looks like a new outdoor furniture set (because no one likes mildewed chair cushions) or some updated decor, you're going to want high-quality, durable products that you won't have to replace each year. We recommend taking the short trek south to Twin Oaks Barns in Millersburg for all your outdoor living needs.

Twin Oaks Barns began in 1973, when Melvin Miller started building little red barns in his backyard on weekends. As demand increased, he found that he had to work more days and bring on more help. Flash forward to 2024, and Twin Oaks is the oldest shed manufacturer in the Millersburg area.

Over the last 50 years, Twin Oaks has also expanded its product line to include everything you could ever need for your outdoor space; this includes outdoor lawn furniture, birdfeeders and birding items, pet houses, cupolas, weathervanes, pots, planters and so much more. Plus, many of their products are made from polyvinyl — a durable material that is crafted using recycled plastics. We should also mention that all polyvinyl products come with a lifetime warranty.

While Twin Oaks still manufactures most of the sheds and barns, they do source some products from local suppliers that utilize only the longest-lasting materials and hardware. Additionally, all of Twin Oaks' products come in a variety of colors and custom options so that they're perfect for your home. 

Let's dive more into Twin Oaks' selection of outdoor furniture because they offer pieces that will last much longer than your average, run-of-the-mill lawn chairs. When it comes to chairs specifically, Twin Oaks has an assortment of Adirondack chairs, rocking chairs, lounge chairs and outdoor dining chairs that are available in every color of the rainbow. Additionally, Twin Oaks offers polyvinyl benches, gliders (instead of rocking, these chairs or benches glide) and swings. Finally, the shop has countless furniture accessories and add-ons like planters, footrests, coffee tables and end tables. 

An additional outdoor furniture product that we love from Twin Oaks is their polyvinyl outdoor dining table. Twin Oaks offers every shape and size of outdoor dining tables, making it so easy to find one that will fit the size of your outdoor space and your family. 

Finally, when visiting Twin Oaks, don't miss checking out their selection of weather vanes. These can be the perfect addition to your house or shed, and Twin Oaks has well over 100 to choose from. Some of our favorites include the hummingbird weathervane, Victorian arrow weathervane, wine bottle weathervane and the handing bald eagle weathervane.
