BASALT, Colorado ā€” Work has started on a nearly $134,000 project to rehabilitate the Arbaney Barn in Basalt and turn it into a living museum and showcase for the town's ranching heritage.

William Bailey, owner of Historical Applications Inc., and John Ross are carefully pulling the building apart and meticulously stacking materials from the 100-year-old barn. All materials that can be salvaged will be used in re-assembly. Some of the logs in the structure must be replaced, Bailey said.

Yay! That is a rather hard job - I've seen a building moved like that before - everything meticulously numbered, documented, photographed, charted, etc.

This is a great project- I like seeing historic buildings restored and maintained, rather than torn down when possible.
