We've been keeping our eyes out for materials for our barn house. We got this really awesome back bar from the Merc (for FREEEEEEE!). It's going to take up our entire kitchen/dining room wall but it will save us a bunch of money and I think it's so incredibly gorgeous!
If you double click on the picture you can see the details...
I also have 3 of these bar stools that came out of the old Mercantile in Homedale. Only one has a base so I'll have to have bases made for the other 2. But wouldn't they look great at the bar!
We also took this old door. This sucker is heavy - and it was free too!
I had an old high school friend call yesterday looking for my brother's phone number. I told him we had bought property and he told me he was getting some salvage items from the airbase in Mtn. Home. He asked if we wanted a tent. Heck yes! Until he mentioned that this is a military tent that's 20 x 40 and takes a forklift to move. I would have taken it but Ival said it was a bit too big. But, he asked what else we were looking for and I mentioned we need flooring. He said there was probably 5,000 board feet of wood that would be gorgeous for a floor at $1 a board ft. The planks are 12' long and 14" inches wide. He said it's full of nails so I suppose we'd spend a ton of time pulling nails - but isn't that what kids are for!
We have Fish and Game coming up to the property the middle of March to help us plant bitterbrush after the fire destroyed all that was there. Ival put out an email the other day asking for volunteers to help us and I think we're going to have a good crew. We're going to take the trailer up and cook them all a good lunch. It should be fun and thank God for family and friends!
So, if you run into any wonderful items we could incorporate into our new barnhouse, let us know!
