        Amish rockers, swings and other furniture

        Susan I don’t know of any over yer way but Wayne Yoder here Huntingdon, TN makes some very nice ones like you describe.
        I was just at his house last night and saw a truck with a trailer load of “porch swings” pull out as we pulled in.
        And he was building one as we walked in the garage.
        He had several chairs and a “glider” sitting there finished.
        I didn’t pay attention if any were rockers or not, but I know he makes them.
        But here lately I think he has been building more “gliders” per requests than the rockers.
        I could always ask for you and get back to you.
        I’m pretty sure the # listed below by Bev is his #.
        But I’m not positive since I never call him I just stop in or see him out an about the community.

    Amish Contractors/Barn Builders

    We had a barn that we were told was Amish built. We would love to have the same barn built again on our new property when we move, and are wondering the how to find/contact Amish builders in Middle Tennessee to discuss the barn and riding arena and get a quote for construction. We are in the Nashville area (Wilson County).

      Amish Chairs in Tennessee

      Kevin one of our readers emailed me “Check out the Athens and Delano,Tennessee Amish.” I don’t know so much about those communities, but may be worth a look.

      The Ethridge community is by far the biggest one in the state. They are among the most conservative of all Amish, but they are quite active in business with a lot of small shops throughout their community of around 1500 people. You can see more at this post on Amish businesses in that area: http://amishamerica.com/ethridge-tennessee-amish-map/

      or see all of our Tennessee Amish posts here: http://amishamerica.com/category/amish-tennessee/

      Hope it helps!

        Amish Chairs in Tennessee

        731.986.4434 is a good number to call. The man checks the numbers that are on the caller ID and returns them around noon central time. He makes what we refer to as Amish rockers (they call them hickory rockers) as well as foot stools, tables, double swings. I’ve bought some of all of them and love them.

    Amish Contractor

    I was told about four brothers who build quality homes and make furniture in Summertown, TN or Ethridge, TN who work with Quality Metal in Summertown, TN. Me and my husband are wanting to build a home and barn on our land. We are looking for a number to contact this group of builders. I heard they have built a lot of quality homes along the Tennessee River, can you please provide me with a number?

    getting in touch with the ethridge community

    “How can I get in to get in contact with the community in Etheridge? I’d like the fastest way to get in touch with them and get a reply as soon as possible. Thank you!”

    Well not knowing anyone in that community directly I’d have to say the fastest way to contact them is to jump in your car and drive out there.

    Now another way which is a long shot is to look up businesses in the area and see if you can contact them for additional contact info on who you are trying to reach. (not likely, but possible if you call a business they frequent like a lumber/hardware shop, gas station, bank or such and leave a message)

    Now if you were looking to contact someone in either the Huntingdon, or McKenzie settlements I probably know them and could easily get you in touch with them.

      Laborers needed

      Lisa I hate to be the bearer of bad news but if they are Amish they won’t be reading this on a computer as the Amish shun technology.

      Just thought I’d let you know.

    Check out Erik’s posts on the Amish and computers. There are Amish people in some communities & groups who DO use a computer at work, some who might use it at a public library. I’m Amish and use a computer at my job. There have been Amish people who have posted on here as “feature” articles as well as comments.

      Thanks for the response Mark, you beat me to it 🙂 Yes Bryce we have several Amish commenters here, and more who read. The article Mark is referring to is below, explaining this – it is acceptable and common in certain contexts in many Amish churches (for example as in Mark’s case using internet at work, but Amish people aren’t going to have computers and internet set up in their homes): http://amishamerica.com/do-the-amish-use-computers-and-the-internet/

      Also, here is an excerpt of a talk given by an Amish father to a group of Amish youth which he allowed us to share here on the site, on Amish concerns over cell phones and the internet: http://amishamerica.com/amish-cell-phones/

    Katie W,things in common

    Dear Katie W, We might have more in common than you think.I was raised in WV from age 14 to age 19.What part were you in?I lived in Wood Co. a town called Parkersburg and then moved to Doddridge Co.a town called West Union.It is half way between Parkersburg and Clarksburg.It’s about an hour away from each town.Parkersburg is near the Ohio River and on the other side is the town of Marietta,OH.There wasn’t much to do but when we moved to West Union,I was in the country and it was nice to not have to deal with crazy driving as much in West Union.My uncle(the reason we moved to begin with,long story) is still a Black Angus cattle farmer in West Union,WV. The only thing I don’t miss are those extremely curvy mountain roads,weak tummy!!!Sorry I chatted your ear off,drop me a line sometime.Maybe we could be pen pals? Sincerely,Shanea Mason
