for and consider to perform a free barn removal.
Barn location: closest to us here in Fenton, MI 48418, or a preferred professional.
Size excluding foundation: Not
so tall we cannot reach the top.
height: Shorter foundations.
of barn: We are looking for older barns with hand-hewn beams and wide plank siding.

without falling and the less rot the better.

Silos: Sometimes we can burn inside the silos. Other times they are just in the way.
Burning allowed: Hopefully allowed
or we have to leave the pile or charge to haul off.
Township: Rural townships are more lenient.
Electricity available: We need electricity unhooked from the barn but close enough
Terrain around barn:
Flat with no obstacles preferred.
bundle area: The more space the better.
Semi access: Possible a semi truck will need to access the site.

items including supply and demand are taken into consideration when determining whether a specific barn can be dismantled
