Old Barn in Iowa

by Susan Gauch
(Keystone, Iowa, USA)

I do have a barn that needs to come down, if anyone needs barn wood, beams etc. I have it if you'd like to check it out. The story, I'm new at all this so please bare with me. My barn was built in the early 1940's. It was a great barn at one time, you can just feel that when you're looking at it. Unfortunately, past owners of my property, had just let it go. Never re roofed it or fixed holes in roof. So this is where the damage comes in. The west side of barn has taken on many Iowan storms and there isn't much roof left on that side. East side of roof is doing it's best to be in the same shape as the west side. It looks like the support beams to the hay loft had given way and beams and hay are still sitting in the same position as if it just happened. I realize that's not true. It still has all the hay mechanisms at the peak of the roof, along with roping and even has the 8 prong hay bale lifter. Beams inside the barn are still in decent shape for use as wood for building.

I feel sad in having to remove this great old barn, but it was left to too many years to decay. Which is just a shame. A farm is just an acreage when there's no barn.

If you feel this old barn can be of some use to use for reconstruction purposes, please give me a call. Thank you.
