Comments on: Photos: Two Barns, One Gets Second Life it's like being there Tue, 16 Sep 2014 04:56:38 +0000 hourly 1 By: C bultman C bultman Mon, 13 Jun 2011 23:28:44 +0000 I should also point out that this barn was destined to be taken down as the property owner wants his site cleared. Only after learning that the owner had engaged a demolition company did we approach him about salvaging the barn instead. Had he wanted to keep his barn we would not have asked to reuse it.

Thanks for ‘printing’ this and for all of the thoughtful work that you and Mary do day in and day out.

If I may however I would like to make one clarification. Rudy Christian will be restoring this barn and reassembling it at its new site in Pennsylvania. However the barn is being dismantled by a more local ‘barn guy’. His name is Tim Wiles and he is from Howell.

Rudy Christian was in AA that Friday to see the barn for the first time and to supervise the measuring and documentation of the it; a critical activity when you are going to disassemble something and not see it together again until after you have built a foundation for it.

Oh, and when that day comes we celebrate again.
