  • Oh my goodness! Look at all the fantastic wood! I would want all kinds of stuff for the yard, patio and porch! Redo my fence with this stuff. If suitable, I would want flooring throughout the house, or at least a couple rooms as a feature wall. Trim the builder grade mirrors in the bathrooms and certainly a headboard for my bed! The list is endless! A real cool funky table would be awesome! Oh, I can only dream! 😴💕🔨

    I think I'd refinish it and do a ceiling.

    I used barn siding for half of a wall. The other half to the floor is fake brick.

    You have hit the mother lode-lucky you!! I would use the siding on the outside of my chicken coop and built one of that outhouse type buildings for my garden. If I had enough wood left, I might even build another structure in my garden, like a she shed or a playhouse for my grandaughtters. Have fun with it!!

    I wood (lol) love that pile. On a smaller scale I made center pieces for a table or coffee table. Easy to make.

    Where were you when I lived in Arizona? OMG it's beautiful wood. To die for. I would have cleaned it and then sided my entire house. Now, in Florida living in an older manufactured home, I'd use it for my interior walls like faux ship lap, maybe even do my floors! :) I am soooooooo jealous. Thanks for sharing your 'gold mine' of fabulous barn wood.

    Do you have any idea the resale value of what you have there in barn boards????!! Thousands of dollars..thousands. A friend of mine took down their big old barn and the Amish paid $25,000.00 for the wood. Better think this over first. What do you need more? Advertise it in the newspaper and see the results. I think it is about $4.00 and something a BOARD FOOT!!!!!!

      An after thought: a barn door sells for $600.00. Some use them for closet doors and the front door too. Here a door, there a door!
