How do you tell if a barn is worth saving?
Some would say that financially they are never worth saving… and they have a valid point. Old barns are money pits.
If you ever encounter a land owner who is working on their barn, give them a hug and a word of encouragement and appreciation for saving a treasured part of our landscape. Trust me, they will appreciate it.
For me, the guy doing the work, and not writing the check, the determining factor on saving a barn is… “Can I remove all the parts of the barn that are bad and find that the barn still stands?”
The answer to that question was “yes” for this barn and so that is where we started… removing the damaged and decayed wood.
