do you realize how hard it is to get your hands on good 12 ft boards from barns its hard if you get any, the ends are split and have to cut em off. your best bet would take some 8 footers and piece it together to make that 12 ft. a full 12 ft board on a barn is very very very rare. and if you decide to go the route of 8 footers and piece it, and also what race of lumber are you looking for if it doesnt matter and you go with the 8 footers and piece it, then give me a call ill have all you want. 634- 189 3 call anytime.... good luck on your search..

I talked to your business partner/cousin about this request earlier today. He assured me that you didn't have any 12' which is fine. It is hard to find 12' but I assured my customer that I would attempt to locate it for him. It's apparently not impossible considering this material is to finish a project that didn't quite have enough. In other words, my client has already located 4800 ft. of it and is looking for an additional 1700 ft.

oh this is steve. we're still looking at a few barns but still can't locate the owner of it we're getting the run around. and what happened to you likeing the lumber we had that day and wanting more of it for your own use. just wandering. it must not be as good as you said because we were loaded and ready to bring it to you after you told us plainly that you wanted the lumber i guess that is bussiness but good luck in your search for that 1700 ft if we run across some ill give you a call. which is unlikely due to dry rotted ends and split ends.... see ya later

I'm pretty sure I told you that I would take a few boards to produce a few samples. However it takes time considering it has to be kiln dried, checked for metal objects, surfaced and machined. I am interested in obtaining and inventory but not at 70 cents per board foot. I'm sure you may get that kind of money if you don't mind driving a ways. From my standpoint, it's very hard material to work with considering the vast amount of 100 yr old dirt, grit and metal deposits impregnated in old barn lumber. Yes it makes an extraordinary end product but it's very expensive to produce. I also have to factor in waste which amounts to about 50% of the material. I really need to be purchasing material of this nature for about 25-30 cents per bd. ft. I'm not selling retail so I have price point I have to hit. Nothing personal, it's just business. Your partner seemed a little irritated because I didn't agree to take the load but I never ordered it to begin with. I said I would try a few boards and if we could come to a price agreement then I would take more. There are some instances where I can pay more for lumber if you had for example 12' long weathered boards.

ok well just forget about our lumber, im not trying to be an ass, but i know what you said to me and my partner. and your right bussiness is bussiness. and i be damned if ima give my lumber away especially my oak and chestnut now on my beech i think 40 cent a sq ft is fair. your thinking about your time and effort you are putting in to it, not the man thats out there putting cuts and bruises on his knuckles for you. i mean if you wanna do bussiness on our oak and chestnut its a firm price of what we qouted you. if you dont want it, you dont have to take it ill sit on it and get enough together to go to virgina and get anywhere from 80 cent to 2 dollars a ft we were trying to help you out. as you were us but me personally i dont mind those long trips. either you want the lumber or you dont. its that simple if someone wants to sell you oak boards and chestnut boards around 30 to 40 cent a sq ft. the person obviously dont know what he or she has. so good luck with that search for the idiot that will give you his lumber for that low of a price....and when you get your heart right give us a call but untill then good bye...

Are you saying that I ordered a load of mixed barn lumber without first negotiating a price? Your partner never gave me a price until he had his truck loaded and ready to bring it over. He then acted like he was mad because I didn't agree to take it @ 70 cents. Only an idiot would pay 700.00 per thousand for mixed species of old dirty barn lumber. Like I said, I'm sure you can take it to another state and get your price. I'm certain I can purchase all the barn lumber I need @ 30 cents if not less. Good luck to you

no steve that was a price if you wanted to just pay one price for all of it together oak and beech mixed we were prepared to sort it out once we got to your shop beech in one spot and oak in another then charge the 40 cents for the beech and 75 for the oak. im not trying to argue or make you mad im just trying to find out whats going on. he put a price on it for all the lumber combined and not seperate it. but the beech is 40 cent and im sure the oak is firm coz i can take that to the guy in breeding for 75 cents. if you want the lumber then let me know even if you just want the beech thats fine its a fair price for it. oak i wont let go no less than 75 take it or leave it. your choice.. give me a call and i dont mind just bringing the beech over if you dont wanna spend much on the lumber... but i can't give my lumber away due to me haveing to replace the money i pay my help... if ya want it call me.. ill bring it to ya in the morning

I have a quick question. I have several barns and access to many others. I would be interesting in selling the lumber but do not know where to start. I haul scrap metal and it would be great to sell lumber in a similar manner, if possible. Not sure what species I have. I live in Kentucky and would love to haul it off similar to scrap metal. Thanks

Where's this buyer at 20 miles north of Somerset?? I'm located in Lancaster, Ky. I have 3 barns we are dismantling locally. And I need new barn boxing buyers. I'm willing to drive up to 80 miles to sell my lumber. I just would like to find new buyers. If you know of any, and would share your lumber buyer contacts. It would be greatly appreciated.
