Weekly Barn Update, December 11, 2014

Have you noticed the new banner at the barn site??

Wonder what is going on??

The DFA has awarded a local contractor, the Cooks, a contract to dismantle the barn to save architectural elements and materials that will be reused in the new community arts building. You will see construction equipment moving onto the site soon. You will see the top loft of the barn being taken apart.  The goal is to place the recovered materials in the first floor of the barn which will be stabilized to store the materials. If you love the barn, don’t despair, instead come to our meeting at 11am on Saturday December 13, at the Duvall Visitor and Centennial Center on Main Street (in old library building). We would love to see you and talk with you about the barn and the future of the project. For those that are interested in the wood from the barn, we are saving it for the new facility to be enjoyed by the whole community. Some of the wood is completely rotten and will be disposed of.  Wood that might be reused or is questionable for reuse will be saved for future processing. More information to come soon! Check here for updates. This is the beginning of a new life for The Big Yellow Barn. And remember, if you’re interested in helping, but don’t have the time to come to meetings, you can still contribute financially by visiting our GoFundMe page!
