What goes up, must come down. And if it’s a barn you have in mind, the Amish might be able to help you.
An MLive.com photo essay tells the story of this job, which took place near Sparta in west-central Michigan. The English owner is actually dismantling the over-100-year-old structure, with plans to put it back up nearby.
The crew is “mostly brothers” from the area of Fremont (this is a 2-church district settlement in Newaygo, Muskegon, and Oceana Counties, according to JAPAS).
The crew’s leader, Marlin Miller, explains: “We grew up in these barns…We know everything there is to know about how they are put together.”
