I have come to the point, where I am very seriously considering finding an outlet for selling my barn wood.
I know that it has value, reclaimed wood sells for good money. Problem is, around here many will offer to remove your barn and clean up most of the mess, if you give them the wood
My barn was built in the 50's with local timber. Red and white oak, chestnut, black walnut etc. Huge hand hewn bottom joists, beams etc. Originally, some of the planks were over 24" wide 5/4 thick and 12' long
The barn is sectioned in a way that it is not conducive for my uses. It is 30'x60' with a full loft, and the exterior is well weathered.
I would like to sell the lumber to fund a more modern cub shop.
Does anyone know where there is a demand for this type of wood? What is a fair value per board foot for the planking and the beams?
Depending on the value of my wood, will determine the size of it's replacement.
I could also deliver it for actual expenses.
