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 purchased a farm 2 years ago that includes a 2,000 sq ft, 2 story bank barn built sometime around the turn of the 19th/20th century. The oak beams are hand-hewn; floor joists are tree limbs with the bark. We put a new roof on it last year. However, the main sills have slipped approx. 6" on its massive concrete foundation. We could use advice on corrective measures. Thank you.
