2021 Brings New Opportunities and Challenges, and we are busy busy busy
It's Mid-April 2021, and we are BUSY.
Not only have we moved (our business and our home) to a neglected but beautiful 15-acre space in North Bellingham, we are also wrapping up decon projects and moving on to more! The 1905 barn on Olson Road in Ferndale has been a long, long project, but the wonderful owners have been such a blessing to get to know. I'll be sad when the job is done!
We also deconstructed a ci. 1915 chicken coop barn nearby, 110' long by 40' wide. All 7000 square feet of heavy patina corrugated roofing and 3600 square feet of 1x8 shiplap purlin boards were pulled and sold, in record time! We still have (some of) the gorgeous, old-growth 2x6 Doug fir rafter boards, and they're a STEAL at only $3.50/LF! There are also peeled pine logs that were the barn's main vertical supports, and some pretty 1x8 cedar tongue and groove left!
Yesterday we began site prep on a large double cupola-topped gambrel in Everson. The siding was asbestos, so the abatement company is finishing up and then we'll begin! The barn had been in quite the state of disrepair, with parts of the gambrel roof blowing off in heavy winds, and there's considerable damage to the loft floor. But, Gorgeous, diagonally installed shiplap boards are abundant, as are beautiful purlin boards.
Unfortunately, the two matching metal cupolas are already spoken for. But contact us with inquiries about the availability of any other materials, and I'll try to keep our products updated!
Stand by for a preview of our NEXT amazing project!
