    Off into dream land.

    Went down the rabbit hole one he inter webs tonight. Came across this.


    Wonder what it would cost to put back up. Anyone want to help raise an old barn?

    Is this for storage or just to have something REALLY COOL on your property?

    The reason I ask is this - if you're going to spend that kind of money to put up a structure that you're going to use for a specific purpose, make sure that it will work for that purpose. One of the reasons so many of these cool, old structures have fallen into disrepair is that they don't/can't accommodate modern equipment and tools. While having the space in between bents was fine for livestock or a hay wagon, it isn't necessarily ideal for tractors and other equipment.

    It would be cool to have a barn like that though!!

    Thinking about a wedding venue. Plus I just love old barns. Grew up spending summers on my grandfather’s farm. Love the old barn.

    I can understand the love of old barns and even turning the structure frame into a residence. I can see having it on the property because its cool or you want it. Trying to build a consumer service business around it is another story...........

    When you think about the cost of the barn, the labor to disassemble it and label it and create drawings for it's reassembly, plus to put it on the flatbed, the price isn't that bad. The frame structure is about $15 per main floor sq foot, which is reasonable..................

    On Route 66, between Edmond and Tulsa, in Arcadia Oklahoma, there is an old restored barn, known around here as "The old round barn". It's an interesting tourist attraction, and since it's not far, we have been there a couple of times. I know there was a reason for it being built in the round, but I can't recall why. It's undergone extensive restoration, and its construction is fascinating. It's also near another tourist attraction known as "Pop's". Here's a link:

    Sully (as usual) has a good point!

    There's a guy named "EddieWalker" on "that other tractor forum" who has a decent sized spread in Texas. He built this really fancy gazebo on the lake/pond at his place. It was really nice! It started as a personal project and then he decided to try running it as a wedding venue. I think after hosting a couple of weddings that he gave it up - just too much of a PITA dealing with the people. (His wife also had some major medical issues which may have played into it as well.)

    Think long and hard about getting into a business dealing with the public and revolving around an emotional event like a wedding. It seems like the bridezilla's will sue anyone that they think hasn't made their special day special enough. There's a lot to be said for just dealing with ATC and the guy in the right seat next to you in the cockpit.
