Taking a trip in May and will be looking for barns with advertising along Route 66. Can anyone give locations and instructions for finding on or near Route 66? We will be travelling the entire length. Especially hoping to find Mail Pouch and Rock City. Thanks.

We have a late 1800's milking barn which is in good condition but serves no use in our dairy operation. Hand hewn beams. We would to sell it to be removed, hopefully to be re-erected elsewhere.

I have renovated a 40'x52' barn in western pa.This barn was in total disrepair. They are very labor intensive, but are absolutely wonderful to live in. Anyone needing consulting advice on construction, heating, insulating, etc, please contact me via email. I can save you alot of money, time and unexpected grief as I have already lived through all of it. I am available to travel anywhere. I have over 25 years construction experience. All wages, traveling, etc to be paid by owner. I will save you money in the end. If you want before and after pictures of my barn, email me, I will send them to you. Thank you. Diane

We moved an old Victorian 1870's and an old barn 1900's to save them from being torn down and are restoring each...We have paid for the restoration of the house and are currently doing so, now that we are starting to work on the barn we have very little money to do so....I have looked into starting a "Barn Again" program in our state of Nebraska...Many of you have asked about grants and what not to restore barns...Check out the Barn again Website, and see if your state has a program....If not, you should think about starting one! Good luck all you barn lovers!
