Like many small business success stories, Barn Light Electric began as a part-time hobby. With a passion for antique light fixtures, Bryan Scott would search through antique stores, attend estate sales, and even poke into abandoned buildings looking for vintage lights to restore. He enjoyed restoring American-made barn lighting because of the high-quality craftsmanship that went into manufacturing these vintage fixtures.

Bryan decided to make his own line of barn lighting the old-fashioned way using only the highest quality, commercial grade materials. He found that others shared his passion for vintage lighting and the demand for his fixtures soon exceeded the resources of his back-yard barn.
