What do I do with our BIG OL' BARN
[Return to Topics]

My husband and I have a HUGE 2 story log barn in VA. We live in TN now and are faced with the prospect of selling or relocating it. Trouble is, we have no idea how to go about valuing it. We know folks look for barns to rebuild on their own land, but we're totally clueless where to start. Can anyone help?

maybe the next owner would do something more to it's suiting. don't sound much like you'll ever need it.

You might want to look at www.barnagain.org or www.tfguild.org.

Is it part of your farm?

Does it stand alone on your property?

How far does it date back? Are the logs chestnut by any chance? How's about some more information?

The old farmers wisdom:

"A good barn will build a house, but a house won't build a barn."

If you intend on selling as a farm, a torn down barn is a turn off as they need the added expense
of rebuilding. If not, go for it but it still seems like a shame.

Why not fix it up for farming. You can fix it up for use as a party barn too. A neighbour did that and it's decorated like the grand 'ol oprey inside. They have wedding receptions and other party activities. They didn't change much of the inside either.
