Does anybody know of a site that can give BF pricing for different types of wood. The same kind of idea as the stock market where it shows stock pricing each day, or does something like this not exist?

Go to some of the sites selling reclaimed lumber and see if anything similar to what you have is listed with prices. You can then figure a starting price for what you have. Remember they have to transport, process and make a profit on what they charge.

Thanks fstedy. I have started to compare pricing from different suppliers. I have been seeing a big difference in pricing with each company. I guess it all comes down to supply, demand and location of the buyer. I have to say the car shows bring in a lot of money to this town however they get very old when you live rite by the fairgrounds, as is my case. This turns my 10 minute commute into a 30 minute commute. But what can you do?

I see you are re-uploading your barn pics again in your gallery. Some duplicates.

Are you having a trouble getting pics for a post and need some help? Give a shout, and likely someone can help.

Hope the barn project is going well.

Every photo you uploaded since yesterday Icarus has been deleted. If you are trying to sell lumber via this forum, this needs to go in the for sale section if you agree to the terms.  Also, I need you to review the rules of posting on the forum in regards to photos. Uploading 2 and 3 copies of the same photo wastes our server space and can result in a loss of the ability for one to post photos as all.

I regularly buy whole barns from those company's that say they will come take yours down.  Most of the time if I purchased everything on one site I will get it for $1.00-$2.00 bf depending on size and specie of wood.  White oak in large sizes will bring the most with red oak hickory beech white pine bringing lower end.  If you take the time to dismantle and sell individual packs you can get more than what the company's are giving you but you will have a lot of time and money tied up.

I (and probably lots on here) see old timbers in restaurants in my travels. So someone wants it.  :)
Move'n on.
