"I have hired an excellent contractor, J & L Enterprises Barn Salvage, to dismantle my 3 barns south of Chelsea Michigan. Barn #1 was 20’ x 40’, with hand hewn and rough sawn beams, corrugated, galvanized steel roof installed by my Father-in-law in early 1960's. Circa mid-late 1800's but moved intact to present site in 1940's. This barn has been dismantled and we have hand-hewn beams and galvanized steel roof material available for sale. The steel has a very nice patina. The beams range from 6’ x 8” x 10” up to 20’ x 12”x 12”. Barn #2 is a 50’ x 64’, bank barn w/gambrel, former dairy barn with hay mow's and granary on upper level and dairy part below. Rough sawn mortise and tenon and peg construction w/14” x 11” and 11” x 11” hardwood and pine beams, I believe. Some are 50’ long while others are about 32’ long. Peeled logs for floor joists with rough sawn 14” x 14” beams below. Cut stone and concrete foundation. Barn is in pretty good shape and still stands as of this writing. Circa late 1800's. There is a hay rail system for moving loose hay and the hay slings are still here with ropes intact. Plenty of gray boards and some partially red-painted boards as well. There is also a belt-driven grain grinder available, looks to be in pretty good shape and includes the drive belt. Barn # 3 is 25’ x 50’, gambrel barn with hay mow above and this has been recently taken down. Hand hewn hardwood beams with log cross beams, concrete foundation. Circa mid-late 1800's. This barn has a hay rail system for loose hay with included rare steel hooks. There are cedar shake shingles available as well. I believe all of the wood was cut on the property during settlement of the area from the early 1830's forward.

If you are interested in buying any of the above materials, please call Loren of J & L Enterprises Barn Salvage at (231) 577-8160 or e-mail him at [email protected] For history of the barns and surrounding property, please call me at 734-272-8096 or 313-965-6055."
