Rebuilding An Old Barn
This is an old barn that is about to be rebuilt, and get a new
barn roof, keeping the
original look, as much as possible. This barn was built on
blocks so we will be setting treated posts, in the ground, at all
We plan to replace all the interior studs with new ones and
replace the roof with new metal.
The roof will all come off and the rafters inspected and replaced as
needed. The barn will then get a new roof.
The center portion of this barn is structurally sound. It's the
two sides that are hurting.
This side is ready to be cleaned out and the new wall built. A
beam has been placed under the rafters and the front jacked and
propped back up into a level position.
A corner post will be set and
a new wall framed. That should make a big improvement on this
sorry looking barn.
Notice the blocks in the front left corner. I still find it hard
to believe this barn was built on blocks. That must have been a
time before green board.
Clicking the images will show you a larger view.
