Taking down a piece of the past LOTS OF PICS

I don't know if this is really on topic, but over the next few months I will be helping clean up and take down a gothic arch barn, which will then be used to build a house and barn. This is just a test post to see if anyone is interested in watching as we progress through it. If so then I will be happy to post photos and updates, if not, then oh well. Here are some of the photos of before we did anything to the barn and then a couple of after we just tore out rotten flooring and cleaned the first floor. 50 years ago this was an amazing, state of the art show barn. It won many of our local awards for dairy barns. This barn is 120ft long and feels like you're in an airplane hanger. It really is awsome! Or maybe I'm just one little freak that likes old barns..... hehehe!

What a beautiful barn! I've done a lot of these tear-downs and rebuilds. The livingroom floor in the house I grew up in was hardwood flooring from a dance hall for example. This is a huge project -- good luck and sending you patience and band-aids!

Sorry for disappearing there for a bit, my internet was not being happy in the storms we've had out here this weekend. Here are picks from early sat. morning as we mainly cleaned the outside to keep the county from complaining. We have almost cleaned out the inside as well. All that is left is to empty the gutters and get rid of the old hay and straw. There is one set back though. The south wall is completly rotten through at one of the support beams and we will have to shore it up quickly before gravity and maybe snow decide to take the barn down first! As you can see in a few of the photos the roof is beginning to cave in at that point. This is very bad, and we will have our fingers crossed over winter that it stays standing. If you notice alot of stones around the barn, those are from the foundation of the old barn that stood there before this one. It burnt down in the late 40's or so at which point this (then) state-of-the-art dairy barn was built. Enjoy some of these pictures, as the inside looks much nicer already!

For anyone who's wondering, the small room with the little mulberry tree growing in the middle of it is the milk house.
