If you have nice old weathered sunbleached barn wood in good condition I’d be interested in buying some.
I'll keep you in mind. My main concern is getting it down.
Call Sebastian Specialty Hardwoods in Seneca WI. 608-734-3599 If he's not looking for barn board, he can direct you to someone.

Do you have Amish nearby? Usually they do.
I don't know any Amish, or have their cell phone number.
Sangamon Reclaimed , Springfield Illinois, that’s all they do, and woodworking from the barn wood.
Good luck. We sold one on the farm 10 years ago for $100 and the stupid thing is still there. We needed up spending some money on it a few years ago and continue using it.
I have been doing historic preservation for the last 12 years. We often deconstruct or demo buildings without historic value/relevance. I'd be glad to help however I can.
Old barn wood and rusty tin has value. Just need to find the right party with interest.
Sent you a P.M otcWill
