    I have recently found a dilapidated Sandstone block foundation from an old house in Eastern Ohio I will be harvesting them for use in landscaping. I am not a landscaper, nor in the business. The blocks are in good shape, old and mossy but still square and usable. The blocks are very large, they measure approx. 16x12x24 - some a bit larger some smaller. How much do you think each block weighs approx? How much can I expext to sell them for? I will be selling 75 blocks or so. Any help would be great, thanks!

    I'd guesstimate them to weigh about 360 lbs each.
    Sell price depends on whether a potential buyer REALLY wants them or is only semi interested.
    A major factor of the selling price is who does the transporting. If you offered them to me, I would provide my labor & equipment to go pick them up for free. If you did all the work, and delivered them to me, I'd probably pay about $80 /ton, or about $15.00 each.
