Our Story

Draft Barn Hardware is a family owned business run by 3 of us. I'm Brigitte, getting to work with my brother, Stefan and my husband Mark. Stefan, better known as "Steebo" has made metal creations, both whimsical and functional, for decades. Mark is an AWS Certified Weld Inspector and has welded and fabricated for decades. Me, well I taught special education for 32 years and got recruited to take care of the odds and ends of running a business and ultimately ended up working in the shop as well. Our business venture got started to bring beautiful heavy duty steel hardware to consumers because we noticed a gaping void in the market.
