removal of barn


The roof of our dairy barn built in 1917 has collapsed. We are need the roof and barn removed. There is a great deal of wood available- poplar, pine, oak. Does anyone have a contact of companies/ people who do this?

Bryan, Sorry to hear about the fate of your barn. Check this website under Resources. Contractors who work on barns are always looking for barn materials with which to repair other barns.

You are right it is about balance and being aware. Thanks for your thoughts!

    Added a new metal roof last year and then had major structural work done this past week. Replaced the center beam support columns and footings. Also replaced the entire north side wall footing/foundation and related support columns and lower wall framing. Thanks to Kurt Gardner and Paul Hayden for your advice regarding what needed to be done. The work was very quickly and professionally done by Marvin Schwartz Construction - (260) 414-2897

    We recently purchased an old historic property in Attica IN in September 2018 with an old, beautiful 1910 Monitor Style barn. Strong winds came through two nights ago and collapsed the barn. We‘re deeply saddened as we were preparing for renovations to use the barn as a wedding venue. We want to restore the barn to its former glory, but it’s extremely difficult to find someone that still builds the mortise and tenon style, and financially we’re not even sure if it’s possible for us to do so . Any thoughts, suggestions, ideas?!
