Well, that dream got shattered pretty quickly. I drove over there and checked out the building. Now, the listing said to be torn down or moved. I could not figure out how they thought you could move that building. It was surrounded on three sides by buildings, and huge oak trees on the other side. I did not see any way that it could be moved in one piece. It would have to be torn down and then put back up. That is way beyond my abilities. Hiring it done would be cost prohibitive. Man, did I want that building though. He was nice, and gave me first refusal (he had two others interested but wanted to give me first crack at it because I was close) but I had to pass. Insert heavy sigh here. Even if I had been able to get it out of the yard, it was tall enough that I think the utilities would have to come out. I counted at least 17 line crossings, and at $250 each, that wouldn't happen either.
To torture myself, occasionally I go to this site and drool. They save and restore old buildings. Check out their barn and cabin inventory. Sigh. Do you think they would barter for a whole bunch of handspun yarn?
