If you’ve driven Loop 820 in North Richland Hills, you may have noticed a bit of construction bustle recently. Previously, the lot housed the city’s library and recreation center and is now the project site for the newest location of the famed Babe’s Chicken Dinner House. The Tarrant County spot marks the 10th restaurant for the Babe’s legacy. And, while it is new construction, most of the construction materials are hardly new at all.
Each Babe’s is a compilation of reclaimed items from near and far stretching from all over the state of Texas. Every board, plank, and tile has been painstakingly sourced and meticulously selected. Often, when older buildings are demolished, they leave behind a wealth of assets that can live on in a new generation of buildings. In fact, it was in an effort to locate such a high volume of reclaimed wood for the Babe’s restaurants that Antique Lumber Company was founded. We invite you to take an exclusive peek at the exterior’s façade of the new North Richland Hills Babe’s to see all the exciting reclaimed items we’ve been able to use in its construction.
When the North Richland Hills Babe’s opens this Fall, we invite you and your family to come take a seat at our table. Experience our new building and see for yourself how each of these pieces lend charm and character to its surroundings. Until then, please visit us at our Antique Lumber Company warehouse in Gainesville, Texas just an hour North of the DFW Metroplex.
