Making A Difference: What's Old Is New

Posted: Updated:

A Lewis County couple is taking recycling to a whole new level by recycling an entire building.

Judy and Gordon Geagly say it's about more than just not being wasteful -- it's about preserving Kentucky history.

The pieces used to build their new shop are made out of an 1860s barn that has been in the Geagly family for more than a century.

"We try to reuse everything," says Gordon Geagly.

The project took more than a year from the tearing down of the barn to the rebuild using the old pieces to make something new.

The couple says they knew the piece of Kentucky farming history was too special to let go. So rather than letting those days of old slowly fall from memory, they're giving them new life and hoping to spread a message at the same time.

"That's our goal. Is to really promote saving our environment and telling people about saving these old barns and using what you've got," says Gordon.
