Demolish a barn.

We have an abandoned barn which lost some of its roof and walls yesterday. We have no intention of restoring it. Some of the remaining walls, which are about 8 meters high, are now very fragile. First of all, what is the best way of making it safe and then, what would be the best way of getting rid of it? We could find a place to put the rubble.

Just a thought - could you sell any of it - timbers, larger stones - as reclaimed building materials.

As for how to make it safe - push it over with a 360 digger ? Maybe hire a 360 with a crusher?

Or you could try flogging it to Mysty :-)

Advert on LBC as niemeyjt you can sell the stone or at least get it taken away at no cost.
Its got some very nice corner stones.

+3 for recycling the materials. I wish you were nearer, Tom. I'm trying to source some clay briquettes. They used to be used to make 'sandwich' walls in barns....

I would love the stone but its too heavy and costly to transport.

You can also lay them as floor tiles

What a shame, there is enough left and exposed to see how it would have once looked or could have looked if restored before it became too late which was probably a long time ago.

Correct me if I am wrong and I may be well out of date, but isn't a permis de demolir likely to be required?

It should at least make sure that your local taxes are reduced.

Yes and no :lol:
If its in a dangerous state you do not need permission but as it costs nothing to apply for and it looks like its in Toms garden I would pop along to the Mairie and ask anyway, its just a formality. Unless its next to a historic monument and that excludes Tom he is not old enough yet. :innocent:
