Hello, I plan on converting our old barn (circa 1900) into a cottage winery. Though it needs quit a bit of work, the old beams are actually older (taken from another older barn) and rebuilt in its present location with 1900 year old siding and floor joists. The barn as started to lean from the wind loads from the west side. and the foundation has started to fall apart in one corner. but most of the columns and beams are in great shape. I need to find out if the barn can be saved just by correcting the problems or if we have to dismantle it to get it up to code. The roof needs to be replaces as soon as possible. so i need to know if its worth fixing now before the rest of the work or wait since it might have to be dismantled and streghtened. I'm in southern ontario, close to the New York border, is there a contact in this area that i can reach, who knows about barn structures? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
