History


Antique hobby since 1965

In a distant past Lambert Alebeek delivered, as baker, daily orders to farms and houses in the area. There and then he discovered his fondness for antique building materials.
His clients replaced fireplaces and tiled floors. He soon bought their 'surplus' of materials and his collection grew steadily. In 1965 he turned his hobby into his profession.
In Udenhout in Brabant you can find the self gathered stock of reclaimed building materials of 't Achterhuis. Visit the atmospheric showrooms and experience the love for old materials.

't Achterhuis

't Achterhuis


For over half a century, our antique hunters have specialised in selecting old building materials and unique items, and by reusing these sustainable materials, we contribute to an environmentally friendly living environment.

We have grown from a one-man business to a family business with about 15 employees, with the second generation at the helm. Over the years 't Achterhuis has become known "worldwide". The international clientele consists of antique dealers, architects, construction companies, decorators, hotel chains, amusement parks, restaurants, retail chains but also every private individual who has (re)construction plans or wants to decorate his interior.

With an eye for quality and detail, our family business has grown into a gigantic empire. From our showrooms, exhibition rooms and park gardens of more than 30,000 m2 experience, we provide our customers with special products and remarkable building materials.
