Hope you like it.

We're a work in progress.  Constantly changing, trying to get better.  Personally and professionally.

Hi!  I'm Brad.  My wife, Jodi, and I created Back40Life.  After owning and managing a successful construction business, we realized it just wasn't fun anymore.  I remember bringing home our first child from the hospital and all of a sudden it was three years later and I didn't remember much about it.  I was physically present, but mentally I was at work.  After some long conversations with the Lord about it, I knew it was time to do something different.  

Back40Life was created to provide the ability to live a simpler, less stressful lifestyle.  We have a small shop at our home where we create all our decor pieces.  Jodi's sister, Autumn and her husband, Adam, create all our vinyl decals from their studio in their home.  Together we work to produce the highest quality pieces.  We hope to exceed our customer's expectations in every piece we make.

"back forty" - an old farming term referring to the 40 acres on the backside of the farm that was left in a simple, unused state.  Its our reminder of how life and business should be.

 

Handcrafted for you

Handcrafted is all we do.  There's something about actually touching a piece with your hands.  You can feel the texture of the material.  Your hands tell you more than your eyes.  Its how quality items are produced.  

Handcrafted starts out way before handling material.  Its starts out with an attention to the customer and the design she chose.  Each order is manually designed before we start the build.  All great pieces start with a great plan.
