1880 Barn NEW
by: Charles Howell

Good Morning.
I saw your barn advertised on this site. I am a full time timber framer and a restorer of barns. I would be interested in seeing photos of your barn and to further discuss a possible re-purposing. We never diminish the history of these structures by sawing them into flooring or parting them out so someone can have a few old beams in their great room. I am fully insured, experienced, and have the necessary equipment to safely dismantle your barn. and give it a new life as an intact symbol of another time.
