Re: Wanted: Old Barn Wood


I was in Dallas this weekend and my mom had mentioned that someone was selling a 69 corvette or something like that. The owners have it stored in a barn. I know you dont need the car but I'm sure you might want the barnwood. I will email her today and ask her.

Re: Wanted: Old Barn Wood


I hear ya, but I am in the demolition business, and it is not always cost effective to save this old wood. With these old barns, there is a lot of money to be made by just moving in, wrecking the place fast with a big excavator, crushing the debris, loading it on the trucks and dumping it down the landfill.

Usually these buildings are falling apart anyway and just require a little push with the bucket of my CAT 335LB excavator. Can even bring down an old house in about 22 minutes (my record).

Besides, it's a heck of a lot of fun to destroy the old buildings. We do it all day long.

Sorry to be devil's advocate, but there's another side to this story.

Why not offer to take down the barn in exchange for the Corvette?

Because my family rolls with serious amounts of wood already meaning money. They collect rare and vintage cars. Cole you never contacted me about the barn they had it in.
