Oh my gosh, I am so excited! My husband contacted a lady today about an ad she placed on Craigslist for a 100 year old barn that she wanted removed off her property. The deal was take it down and keep the wood. We also have to dispose of the shingles. I am so excited to have all of this old wood to use!!!!
The biggest project we have planned is to build a cool treehouse/fort for our nephews. The remaining wood will likely be used for benches, birdhouses, planters, signs and more!!! The salvage starts this weekend!!!

I might even invest in an electric planer to smooth the planks down, so they would be smooth enough to use for picnic table and benches and chairs, and flooring, furniture, cabinets, shelves, etc., etc.

Good luck, and happy hunting.
