Old Barn Beams
[Return to Topics]

I have this old barn that was pushed off its foundation in a wind storm two weeks ago. Its a 40'x72' barn with a hay loft. The wind caused it to lean a little and push the back wall off the foundation(so the barn is still standing). All the timber is in great shape including the old barn beams. Had an Amish crew give me a price of $14,000.00 to straighen it, so my insurance decided to total out the barn. My question is, is there anyone out there that is interested to buy my barn and hull it away so I can replace it. The barn is in Ohio and is avaiable to see any time. If you are not interested can you lead me to someone who might be? Thanks!

In our area (MD-PA), the Amish and Mennonite folks are always looking to buy good, sound old barns and move them to their own property, so you might start with the folks who quoted you to fix it.

Local barn here about the size you say yours is went for something like $10k last summer, I've heard.
