Default Old barn teardown and rebuild

I'm not sure if this is the right section for this. I was recently offered a pretty good sized gambrel barn. It is really old but it is in excellent condition. I don't have the exact measurements but I would guess around 30x60 and tall. I have construction experience but nothing of this size. Any ideas on how much it would cost to have something like this dismantled and reassembled? The cost of material to replicate a barn like this would be staggering which is why I'm considering this. Does anyone know anyone that could do something like this? The barn is located in Washtenaw County, MI. Thanks.

Find a crew of Meneoites or Amish to do it. Years ago there were some brothers that were salvaging old barns but back then they had a list that would keep them busy for the rest of their lives. I do remember them saying it was very dangerous and to not ry it yourself.

The Amish guy that worked on my barn dismantled, moved and rebuilt a large barn. He said he had $30,000 into it. He put new siding on too.
