Barn Un-Raising

We’ve all heard of Barn Raisings, but what happens after many years when the barn slides off the foundation and presents a danger to anyone foolish enough to venture inside? The answer is a barn UN-raising. This consists of attaching a chain to a main beam and pulling with a tractor. The result is dramatic , but it require two attempts because post and beam construction is resilient. Thankfully no one was hurt and it appeared that the bats and swallows were able to fly to freedom as the structure fell.
