Under building supplies for sale, in the Roanoke Times, I found a
30x70 chestnut log barn, from the 1800s.
Ah, to be young enough. Anyone interested can probably find it under
www.roanoketimes.com. No pprice indicated, but my guess is that if the
logs are in decent shape, it won't be cheap.
Sounds like that has cool shop potential. My wife and I often take a short
trip out of town to relax. We stay in an 1860's 2 story log cabin that was
an old tobacco drying shelter. The building was disassembled and
transported from somewhere in the eastern US and was relocated in SE Texas.
This thing is very solid.
Well, yeah, but...tearing that sucker down and constructing another
house is beyond me at this stage of my life (closer to end game than
the state cops thought I'd get when I was a kid, but that was more
than 50 years ago). It was actually in the Miscellaneous section, too,
not building supplies. My poplar sided 25x48 shop will have to
suffice. We just put new windows in the house, a roof three years ago,
and siding is due for replacement this month. And I did NONE of it.
