Salvaging a barn, Maine

Hello barn people!
You are who I need! I am buying property to erect a barn and want to salvage rather than new build if possible. I wonder the best way to find people with barns, I could imagine they may not be internet people... Also wonder if you could pro con old versus new.

As far as pros and cons of old barns vrs new...

If you can afford to save an old barn, and you can find one that meets your needs, then I don't see any disadvantages in restoring and moving an old barn. There will be challenges in the process but as long as you have a good sized budget, why not have what you really want?

If you are working with a tighter budget then building a new barn might be your best bet. You can have all the charm and rustic beauty that comes with an old barn, but designed exactly the way you want it.

The only limiting factor really is your budget. If you have money and love old barns, then get one before they are gone! They aren't going to be around forever.
