A Gray Barn with Some History

Recently I had the opportunity to travel to German Township in Ohio to look at a barn built in the 1880s. German Township until relatively recently (the last factory closed in 1987) had a thriving tobacco industry. This beautiful barn was built to hang harvested tobacco to dry prior to being processed.

A few pieces under the eat side peak had been protected for years from rain and wind. These wide pieces have a beautiful gray weathered look($5/sqft).  In addition to those unique pieces the northern wall ended up acquiring a rustic almost drift wood feel($3.5/sqft). While  the west and south sides turned out to be very similar to th gray siding we normally get in ($4/sqft). We've already had a few pieces used for tables and doors, well be sure to post pictures of those as we can.
