Wear walking shoes and dress according to the weather. Keep posted to any schedule changes – rain may necessitate cancelling or postponing the trip due to the condition of the dirt roads.

Log Tobacco Barn for Sale in Virginia

by Kent Griswold on May 13th, 2010. 18 Comments

Kara discovered this log tobacco barn for sale in Danville, Virginia on Craigslist. Here is what the ad has to say about the barn. I think it would make a perfect tiny house or cabin with a lot of hard work. At $2,100 it has a lot of potential.

1900′s log tobacco barn, very good condition. You dismantle and take down. Covered outside hand hewn timber, log structure. Original poles inside used to hang tobacco.

Approx size 19 x 19 without overhang poles. Stone/rock foundation. Logs are notched on ends. Covered on outside with handhewn timber on three sides so logs protected over year. Email me for photos.

Move to your location as a barn, studio or cabin. View the Craigslist ad here. View more photos here. Continue Reading »
