some of the wood we’ve put in the machine shed

We have a 150 yr old barn in western PA that collapsed under snow this winter, and we are trying to find someone interested in buying the wood.

It's a mix of oak, chestnut and pine, with about 80 beams.

We've been moving the wood out of the weather and into a machine shed. Thanks.

Antique 30x42 timber frame, Schuylkill Haven, PA

by Philip Hess
(Bethel, PA)


This old barn dates to the early 1900's. It still stands in Schuylkill Haven, PA.

The beams are oak and are in great condition. It is divided into three bays, each 14' wide, and is 14' tall. Loft floors could be added. It has been in the Biever Family for many years, and they used it for hay storage when they farmed. (We call it the Biever Frame.)

For $12,000, you get the frame dismantled, drawn, tagged, and if any repairs are necessary, they will be included in this price. Shipping is an extra charge. We would be glad to put it back up on your location.

Call us at (717)933-5822 to schedule a visit, or email [email protected] Photos of our work are available at oldvalleybarnwood.com
