Default Heart Pine Lumber

I own some property close to Evergreen Alabama that has an old house and a huge barn on it.
Both the barn and house are built out of rough cut heart pine and the old house has solid oak flooring in it. Plenty of red bricks from the fireplaces. I think the wood could be re purposed and would be great to make furniture or floors out of. There is a ton of good lumber left in both.

I am going to clear cut the property after the first of the year and looking to see if there is anyone interested in possible salvaging some of the lumber for a very reasonable price.
I will post some photos of the barn after Christmas. Its in great shape with a huge hay loft and several corn crib style rooms.

Could be interesting to run a metal detector around there before it all gets pushed up, then hit the tree roots after they get pushed over. Might find that Confederate gold that's been missing!

I'm assuming you would want takers to do the de-construction themselves? I'm interested in some lumber, but it looks a little dangerous for a guy with a pry bar and sledge hammer to be working in.

Contact Evolutia out of Birmingham. They will pay you for it if it's something they are interested in.

I would be interested in some oak as I am building a kitchen counter top.

If you have someone come take it down by hand, you might want to have them sign a waiver in case they are injured.

About 15 years ago I was helping my brother and father take down a pole barn when it collapsed. One of the poles struck me in the back and head, breaking my nose and driving me into the ground. I am lucky I wasn't killed.

I probably could have sued the owner, a business, but it was my fault and not theirs, so I never considered it. Others might have a different attitude.

I would definitely be interested in some of the wood - both the heart pine & oak. I would be willing to help with the demolition as well but I don't have any heavy machinery.
