bother to assume an identity to take the piss out of you? I certainly
wouldn't and I am making an assumption on Andy's part based on his

unfortunately (for you) your posting style and stock phrases give you
away, I particularly like it when you ask on another newsgroup a
question about a thread on here and then post the answer.
Maybe that's the way they do things on Planet IMM, but obviously time and
money are not issues in that bizarre place. I've participated in a few barn
conversions, many starting with a biulding in a worse state than the
original poster's, but not one has involved removal and re-erection stone by
stone in the original sequence. Not only would it take forever, but the cost
would be astronomical. Utterly bonkers suggestion. From the posters website
it would appear that the building has stood quite happily for at least 100
years, and has more substantial footings than my old house in Norfolk used
to have. Without seeing the barn in the flesh, but based on the pictures,
I'd reckon the most it would need is underpinning.

have seen a barn built this way. basically a new build with the old walls
clad around. Quite cheap and effective, and no throwing money down a deep

Which isn't the same as taking the thing down, stone by stone, numbering
each one and then reassembling in the reverse order. Besides which, looking
at the photos the barn is made of bricks.
