  1. Time to call the cabin kings. They'll rip this one apart and build a whole "new" cabin in a some spectacular location with it. I'm only saying this because the program has only recently arrived on French TV and I love watching it. Several reasons for this
    1. the locations are usually amazing
    2. the projects are often creative
    3. the whole thing is totally outrageous in terms of means, budget, engergy, impact on the environment etc
    4. we only get a fourth of the advertising breaks you get in the U.S.

  2. Funny that the roof is still intact as part of the barn that get the full brunt of the weather.

  3. It can collapse any time now I am afraid.

  4. It's a wonder it hasn't fallen due to the roof being heavy, the sides what is left must be strong.
    Nice capture..

  6. I have a feeling that what's called for here is demolition skills.

  8. As rural areas continue to fade economically, it seems the only barns we see here are ill-maintained. Still, they become more interesting that way.

  9. FOR SALE: Home with state of the art cross-ventilation air circulation system.

  10. Looks like decorators have raided this barn for its siding to put in more upscale buildings. There is little reason to fix up old barns any more. Farmers don't raise animals any longer. Good find and photo.

  12. This photo really speaks to me.
    I am hoping that the barn boards are being re-used.

  13. Wow- that one needs some help!! I sure do love the old barn wood though. Looks like the owner is having trouble with folks coming around..it does look like it might fall over on someone.

  17. It is a beauty. We had one by our place but was torn down this past summer. It was over 100 yrs old but the last windstorm did it in. Sad.

  18. What a shame. It looks like it's been raided for weathered barn lumber. Depending on its condition it can be more expensive than virgin lumber.

  19. Beautiful!
    Many years ago my dad dragged old barn boards and beams home to "panel" our walls with. Mom used to tell us we were ' brought up in a barn."

  20. This one looks like mine from last week where they are taking the boards down one by one for repurposing. It would be nice if someone came along and saved these wonderful boards.There are still many good ones.
