Dirk, Thanks for the info. I've seen old barns where the ridge timber had supposedly shrunk enough that it pulled the gable ends in a bit. But you'r right, that gable wall looks in great shape.

I had to snap this picture today as I drove home from the barber shop. It is a structure on a horse farm in town.

The only wall that was straight when we showed up was the front. The northwest corner had settled around 18" pulling the east wall over. East wall is your photo. When the house was jacked up, the front and east wall never moved. From there it was decided to leave the walls alone.

Bruce, I sent you an email a few days ago about a different thread, did you get it?
