That’s fun to see!

Wasn’t the last historic building you posted in Centerville too? What words are you using when you search for/find these CL listings? “barn,” “timber,” “beams,” ??? Just curious.

I’ve just happened upon them in my browsing. I browse a number of areas on Craigslist at least every other day. I actually have 4 area listings I can go to that are local. I do a quick browse looking for deals on stuff I might want….tools, wood, tool, landscaping materials, more tools…whatever. Did I mention I look for tools? I missed out on a bucket full of old planes and chisels for free the other day….the lady replied that she had just promised it to someone else…..:(

Hi Bob;
—-Ha!....shouldn’t show me these old barns, my wife says I should stay focused on all that’s around me here.
Anyway, that price is out of my range, while I have found many around here for lesser or nothin’. One of the jokes we have is that our barn ‘was free’.....well I’m sure you know the rest of the story. Any-time, some-one tells you some-thing is ‘free’ better grab your wallet. Seems like every-ones standing around, with their hands out, waiting to collect on the ‘free’.

Thank you.
