Considering this, how much does it cost to dismantle a barn?
The cost to demolish a barn is about $7,000 and up but this too can vary depending on location, the size of the barn and many other factors. That is a large amount of cash but selling the good wood that is recovered can greatly help to recoup much of that money.
Also, can I sell my old barn? When you want to sell a barn you must direct your marketing at people who buy old barns and barn wood. Ideally, the barn seller should want the barn buyer to be someone who is in the business of buying old barns because they will have the experience and know-how needed to safely remove an old barn.
Secondly, why are old barns not torn down?
Considering our cultural fixation on barns, it's strange that no state law prevents them from being torn down or mandates their upkeep should the owner let them stand indefinitely. One obvious reason for the laissez-faire attitude is practicality: so many barns, so few resources to maintain them.
Are old barns worth money?
Value. Every old barn is a unique item in a unique situation, and this is part of what gives old barns their value in a mass-produced world. A small barn of 30 by 30 feet or less, in reasonable condition, can be bought for around $10,000, but this doesn't include the cost of dismantling and moving it.
